JUST AS THE REST OF YOUR BODY CHANGES AS YOU AGE, SO DO YOUR FEET AND IN MANY CASES SOMETIMES MORE SO DUE TO STRESS WHICH THEY HAVE HAD TO HANDLE ALL THEIR LIVES.

PODIATRIST, DR. JON PRON STATES, "FOR PEOPLE WHO ARE TOO SEDENTARY, THE 33 JOINTS AND NEARLY 100 TENDONS AND LIGAMENTS IN THE FOOT CAN DRY OUT AND BECOME TIGHT.  BONES CAN SHIFT, JOINTS CAN MOVE.  AND NOW WE ARE PUTTING PRESSURE ON THINGS WE SHOULDN'T PUT PRESSURE ON.  EXTRA WEIGHT ALSO ADDS PRESSURE TO FEET AND KNEES - 3 POUNDS FOR EACH ONE OVER YOUR TARGET WEIGHT.  STAYING ACTIVE CAN HEAD OFF MANY PROBLEMS.  MAKE COMFORT YOUR PRIORITY IN SHOES AND REMEMBER, YOUR FOOT SIZE CAN CHANGE.  YOU DON'T KNOW HAO MANY TIMES PEOPLE COME INTO THE OFFICE, PUT THEIR HANDS ON THEIR HIPS AND SAY - I'VE ALWAYS BEEN A SIZE 8, DOCTOR."

AS THE GENERAL POPULATION AGES WE SEE MORE AND MORE SENIORS IN OUR FOOT CLINIC.  ALTHOUGH WE SEE PATIENTS OF ALL AGES, SENIORS TEND TO DEVELOP MORE FOOT ISSUE WITH AGE.  IF YOU OR A LOVED ONE REQUIRES COMPETENT FOOT CARE OR CUSTOM ORTHOTICS, PLEASE DO NOT HESITAT TO CONTACT US AT 416-465-8737.
