Foot problems quickly reduce mobility. If it’s painful to walk, the elderly person will walk less. This reduces independence, limits exercise and risks the development of blood clots.
Healthy feet improve balance thereby reducing the risk of falls. Corns, calluses and ingrown toenails can cause severe pain and imbalance. Treating these issues will eliminate the unnecessary pain and will reduce the risk of falls.
Early Warning Signs of Systemic Diseases:
Feet can actually help alert you to health problems at an early stage. Problems such as arthritis, poor circulation, diabetes and many other illnesses can first show signs in the feet and toenails.
Nail fungus and nail thickening is very common in the elderly. Fungal infection of the nail can cause breakage in the nail or loss of the nail. Thick toenails can cause pressure on the underlying skin and can lead to pain, nail detachment and ulcerations. Athletes foot, psoriasis and other skin problems are also very common in the elderly and can be easily treated when recognized early.
