Older patients have distinct foot problems, closely related to circulatory impairment or arthritis. Our feet suffer from wear-and-tear as we age. It is important to keep our feet in their best shape in order to prevent serious conditions that can take a toll on your mobility and overall quality of life. It is also difficult for many patients to reach their feet in order to cut their own nails. It is important for older patients to keep their feet clean and dry, and to promote healthy blood circulation by walking or exercising regularly.
