During our later years pain and discomfort may have become second nature. Unidentified development delays or changes to bones, joints, ligaments, muscles and tendons over our life, lead to osteoarthritis, poor balance, and reduction in walking ability. This is often a time when we decide to seek professional help. Many seek surgical interventions, and for some, this may be necessary. For many others, a visit to a podiatrist for a well-managed treatment plan may reduce pain levels and improve quality of life.
Common concerns in later years: Poor balance and instability, knee pain, increased pressure areas on feet leading to callus, corns and wounds, pain at the heel and ball of the foot, pain at the toes, acquired flat foot or fallen foot arches, sciatic pain, Tingling, burning, numbness or cold toes.
