Aged Care

Unfortunately, elderly people do become more prone to foot problems. Sometimes it’s because of another health issue and sometimes it’s simply because, with age, it becomes harder to reach your feet. At footpoint Podiatry, we can help with general foot care and the treatment of hard nails that tend to develop as we age. This is important to prevent ingrown toenails and fungal infections.

Your feet can also provide an early indication of more serious conditions like diabetes, arthritis and circulatory disease. Look out for signs like dry skin, brittle nails, burning and tingling sensations, feelings of cold, numbness, and discolouration. If you notice any of these signs, it’s important to ask a podiatrist about them.

Painful and uncomfortable feet don’t have to be a natural part of growing old. At Footpoint our caring and up to date approach to treatment aims to keep you mobile and comfortable, so you can maintain your independence and enjoyment of life.
