With Australia’s advancing aged population, it has never been more important to highlight foot care in the elderly. Your independence and mobility relies on this vital part of your body. The truth is that many common foot and lower limb problems don’t simply just go away and neglecting these can lead to serious complications.
These complications can include:
- Diabetic foot ulcers
- Foot, ankle, knee, hip and back pain and arthritis
- Heel spurs
- Tendon pathologies such as achilles tendonitis
- Progressive flat foot deformities
- Sciatica with referred pain down your legs
- Ingrown toenails
Fortunately, an appointment with one of our My FootDr Podiatrists can prevent many of these complications with early diagnosis and treatment.
