About Our Geriatric Podiatrists
Are you looking for a trusted geriatric podiatrist in New Jersey?
People don’t realize how much they use their feet. In fact, an average active person takes around 7,500 steps per day. By 75, you would have walked over 100,000 steps.

Understanding the Importance of Geriatric Podiatry Services
Our foot is one of the most complex body parts as it is comprised of 26 bones. The wear and tear that the foot endures over the years places a significant amount of strain and stress on it. Because the cells inside the feet hold less water as one ages, this change affects the ligaments, tendons, and collagen. If a bone, ligament, tendon, or muscle shifts out of place, it can lead to pain or other bony growths. Additionally, an elderly individual's healing ability lessens when circulation in his or her feet diminishes.
It is important to note that sedentary older adults who are no longer in the workforce are prone to developing problems such as callouses, pressure wounds, and other vascular diseases. Geriatric podiatry services are designed to mitigate these issues; preventing small problems from turning into bigger issues.
