Geriatric Podiatry (Elderly)

Introduction To Geriatric (Elderly) Podiatry

Throughout our lives, we walk many thousands of miles and as we age, the capacity of the foot to carry out its function reduces with the inevitable wear and tear within the joints and a variety of systemic diseases that can affect the foot.

The Foot In Old Age

Some level of deformity of the foot is inevitable. A lifetime of wearing the wrong shoes and many miles of walking will all take their effect. The skin becomes less elastic, wear and tear of the joints, reduced blood supply all take their toll. With the regular wear and tear and the addition of various healthcare conditions, the foot in old age may need podiatric care.
