Call our office at 215-334-9900 and consult with one of our podiatric doctors for an evaluation.

Many people believe that it is normal for their feet to hurt and simply resign themselves to enduring foot problems that could be treated. Even among people in their retirement years, many foot problems can be treated successfully, and the pain of foot ailments relieved. Whether due to years of neglect, abuse, or just normal wear and tear your feet change as you age. Here are some of things that senior adults should look for and consult with one of our podiatric doctors for a foot evaluation:

  • Our feet tend to spread
  • We lose the fatty pads that cushion the soles of our feet.
  • Added weight and just time can affect our foot structure.
  • Improperly fitted shoes, have your feet measured for shoe sizes more frequently.
  • Dry skin and brittle nails are common conditions
  • Pain or discomfort in your feet.
