Seniors, Here’s How to Stay Active and on Your Feet

The Administration for Community Living, a division of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, has designated June Older Americans Month in order to call attention to all the ways seniors can continue to live a full and purposeful life, no matter what their age is.

A full and purposeful life is hard to achieve if your feet hurt. That’s why board-certified podiatrist Dr. Kenneth R. Wilhelm is dedicated to excellent foot care for seniors in Fairfax County. We want you to keep doing the things you love, which in turn will help keep you active and healthy.

Foot pain is common, but not normal

It’s not unusual for seniors to suffer from foot pain. After all, their feet have been working to support their bodies for many years. In our later years, arthritis kicks in, bunions get worse, poor circulation and nerve damage cause pain and numbness, or the effects of diabetes finally take their toll.

But a qualified podiatrist can address all of your foot problems. It isn’t necessary to grin and bear it when expert foot care is available.
