APMA PODIATRISTS STATES THAT MINOR FOOT PROBLEMS CAN WORSEN IF LEFT UNCHECKED

DR JAMES CHRISTINA OF THE AMERICAN PODIATRIC MEDICAL ASSOCIATION STATES, "EVEN SEEMINGLY MINOR ISSUES, SUCH AS SORE FEET OR BUNIONS, CAN WORSEN AND ULTIMATELY REQUIRE COSTLY SURGERY IF LEFT UNCHECKED.  WHETHER YOU SHOULD SEE A PODIATRIST OR AN ORTHOPEDIST DEPENDS ON YOUR CONDITION.  IN GENERAL A PODIATRIST IS THE BEST FOR MINOR PROBLEMS AND FOR SURGERIES TO CORRECT CHRONIC CONDITIONS LIKE HAMMERTOES.  ORTHOPEDISTS ARE SURGICAL SPECIALISTS OFTEN RECOMMENDED FOR BREAKS AND OTHER SUDDEN INJURIES (THEY ALSO TEND TO BE MORE EXSPENSIVE) IN THE U.S.."

AT ACADEMY FOOT AND ORTHOTIC CLINICS WE BELIEVE THAT IS MUCH BETTER IN THE LONG RUN TO HAVE INJURIES ATTENDED TO ASAP INSTEAD OF WAITING UNTIL THE CONDITION BECOMES CHRONIC.  AT THE CHRONIC STAGE USUALLY SECONDARY CHANGES ARE OCCURING AT THE CELLULAR LEVEL AND COMPLETE HEALING IS IMPOSSIBLE WITH A RESULTING LOSS OF FUNCTION.

BROUGHT TO YOU BY DR. HARDY AND MARZ HARDY, D.Ch., B.Sc., PODIATRIC MEDICINE, TORONTO CHIROPODIST AND TORONTO FOOT SPECIALIST AND THE TEAM FROM ACADEMY FOOT AND ORTHOTIC CLINICS.
