AGING


Whether due to neglect, abuse or the normal wear and tear of the years, changes in the feet occur as people age. Their feet tend to spread with time and lose the fatty pads that cushion the bottom of the feet. Additional weight can affect the bone and ligament structure. Older people, consequently, should have their feet measured for shoe size more frequently, rather than presuming that their shoe sizes remain constant. Older people commonly face other conditions of the feet and ankles, such as dry skin and brittle toenails.

Observing preventive foot health care has many benefits. Chief among them are that it can increase comfort, limit the possibility of additional medical problems, reduce the chances of hospitalization because of infection, and lessen requirements for other institutional care. The skilled foot and ankle specialists at Ankle & Foot Care Centers can advise patients on how to take proper care of their feet as they age. To schedule an appointment, contact one of our 18 Ohio locations today.
