As you age, caring for your feet is critical not only to your health, but also to enjoying the activities that you love. Seniors are subject to more foot and ankle conditions that often worsen without diagnosis and treatment.
Our award-winning foot specialist in Merrillville, IN, is specially trained to care for senior adults. Seniors have a higher risk for foot conditions because of poor circulation or nerve damage. Proper footwear and good foot health are important for anyone, but especially for senior citizens who have diabetes. It is normal to experience foot pain as you age. However, without treatment, your foot pain may develop into arthritis or other foot conditions. As a senior, you have a responsibility to properly care for the health of your feet, and we are here to help.
We want to help you get back on your feet so that you can maintain an active lifestyle. Our trusted foot specialist in Merrillville, IN, emphasizes routine foot inspections to ensure proper foot hygiene and nail care. These best practices not only prevent infection and other debilitating conditions, but they’ll help prevent falls and other mobility issues.

We are requiring patients and anyone accompanying them to arrive for their appointment with a face covering, (such as a scarf, bandana, t-shirt, handmade mask or other) that covers their nose and mouth already in place. If they or their guests arrive without one, they will be asked to return to their car to put one on or reschedule their appointment. We are unable to issue surgical masks to patients at this time. As such, beginning on the morning of April 8th, we will require patients and visitors to arrive for their appointment already wearing a face covering.
