What are common foot problems when we age?

By the time we are 65, we experience different changes in our feet. Some common foot problems when we age are an increase in foot size and width, the skin becomes thinner, ligaments and tendons become weaker, the arch flattens, dry and flaky skin, thick and discolored toenails, and crooked toes and feet. Due to the many conditions we could have, it is important that we check our feet every day to look for any swelling, blisters, or cuts.

Also, it is vital that the shoes you wear are stable and well supported. Our certified pedorthist can measure your feet to ensure the shoes you are wearing are the best fit for you.  To help avoid any toenail fungus or ingrown toenails, our podiatrists are trained to make sure your feet are fungal free and well groomed.
