Description: Mariely Orama, a medical assistant for the Athletic Orthopaedic and Reconstructive Center wraps Rosmarie Danchik's injured foot.Rosemarie Danchik had never set foot in the office of a podiatrist until she broke her foot at the age of 61.  After sustaining a fall while putting away Christmas decorations Danchik found herself in a wheelchair and facing reconstructive surgery.   Broken bones are not an uncommon complaint as people age because bones  lose calcium.  While not everyone can expect broken bones with age, foot problems tend to increase and can often be the early signs of a serious illness.  Aging does a number on people’s muscles, ligaments, tendons, and bones which can mean an increased need for podiatric attention.  Diabetes can also sometimes be spotted by a podiatrist through routine care.  

If you are suffering from any podiatric complaints that may be related to age you should seek out the care of a podiatrist such as Dr. Michael Stein of Foot Doctor of the East Bay.  Dr. Stein can diagnose any injuries you may have sustained as well as provide you treatment options that work for you.

Geriatrics and Podiatry

When people age, some common issues that may occur are bone density loss, dry skin, poor circulation, and even rough brittle nails. These issues may also affect your foot health without care.

It is important to take care of your feet because feet that are injured or diseases can affect your overall health and having painful feet hinders your ability to do daily activities.

As we age, health problems become more likely, so it is essential to visit your doctor for check-ups. It is recommended to check your feet frequently for any possible cuts, bruises, swelling, corns, etc.

Cracked or dry feet can be treated by applying moisturizer. It is also important not to wear old socks because the older the sock, the higher the chance of exposure to bacteria.

Lastly, good foot health means you can have a more active lifestyle.

If you have questions, please contact one of our offices which are located in San Leandro, Pleasanton and Los Gatos, CA. We offer the newest diagnostic and treatment technologies for all your foot care needs.
