IL Podiatrist Discusses Foot Problems With Seniors
Dr. Grant Gonzalez of the Foot & Ankle Center of Illinois recently met with senior residents and staff at the Eastland Retirement Community facility, an independent living center nestled on the family-owned farmland of Jane Moose in Auburn, IL. Meeting with residents in an informal setting was a perfect opportunity to explain some of the most common foot ailments that seniors experience and to offer simple solutions.

According to Dr. Gonzalez, “The senior population is expanding and I feel it is part of our role, as podiatrists, to help them get the most out of their future years. We understand that staying healthy is a challenge as you age, but a lot of foot problems and related injuries can be prevented through patient education and awareness forums," says Gonzalez.
