What Is Geriatric Foot Care?

Geriatric foot care is primarily geared toward helping older adults with their podiatric needs. Older adults are at a greater risk of developing podiatric issues. Therefore, regular maintenance is essential to avoid serious complications. Common conditions that older adults struggle with include:

How Does Geriatric Foot Care Work?

At LePoer Podiatry, we can evaluate the health of your feet and determine the best means of keeping your feet healthy long-term. Along with providing evaluations, we can also make recommendations based on the issues that you’re struggling with. Most often, complications are caused by foot injuries that are taken for granted or ignored. Therefore, we recommend that you check your feet frequently for any possible cuts, bruises, swelling, corns, or any other irregularities. 

When Is This Necessary?

Foot care is always important, but becomes particularly important after age 60. Around this age and after is when people typically begin experiencing complications. It’s common for the skin on our feet to become brittle and crack with age, opening up the possibility of infections and issues like bunions.

If you have noticed pain, swelling, irritation, or discoloration on your feet, it’s time to schedule an appointment. Moreover, if you’ve been diagnosed with diabetes or another condition, we can help monitor your health and help avoid problems further down the line.
