ARCH PAIN TORONTO

FOOT ARCH PAIN IS A COMMON SYMPTOM THAT WE TREAT IN OUR FOOT CLINIC.  IT USUALLY GOES HAND IN HAND WITH HEEL PAIN AND IS COMMONLY REFERRED TO AS PLANTAR FASCIITIS.  THIS IS ONE OF THE MOST COMMON AILMENTS THAT TORONTO CHIROPODISTS AND TORONTO PODIATRISTS SEE IN THEIR CLINICS.  MOST PEOPLE ARE BORN WITH A GENETIC DEFICIENCY KNOWN AS OVERPRONATION.  THIS IS WHERE THE SUPPORTING FOOT LIGAMENTS ON THE PLANTAR PORTION OF THE FOOT COMMONLY KNOWN AS THE PLANTAR FASCIA BECOME INJURED AND INFLAMED.  THE MAIN WAY TO TREAT THIS CONDITION IS TO PRESCRIBE CUSTOM MADE ORTHOTICS.  THESE MEDICAL DEVICES SUPPORT THE FOOT IN THE NEUTRAL, NON-WEIGHTEARING POSITION.

OUR CLINIC USES THE LATEST IN TECHNOLOGY KNOWN AS 3D NON-WEIGHTBEARING COMPUTERIED LASER TO OBTAIN OUR CASTS.  WE ALSO USE THE TRADITIONAL METHODS SUCH AS PLASTER AND FOAM BUT PREFER THE LASER SYSTEM DUE TO ITS ACCURACY AND EASE OF USE.  PLUS THE CASTING INFORMATION IS SENT BY THE INTERNET DIRECTLY TO THE ORTHOTIC LABRATORY WHICH MAKES THE TURN AROUND TIME MUCH QUICKER.

OUR CLINIC AFTER PRESCRIBING THE ORTHOTIC THEN EDUCATES THE PATIENT ON HOME TREATMENT KNOWN AS R.I.C.E. (REST, ICE, COMPRESSION AND ELEVATION). ONCE A PATIENT HAS AN ACTIVE INFLAMATION, MEASURES HAVE TO BE TAKEN ASAP TO ENSURE THAT THE INJURY HEALS QUICKLY OTHERWISE COMPLICATIONS CAN OCCUR SUCH AS HEALING WITH SCAR TISSUE WHICH CAN SET OFF CHRONIC PAIN SYNDROMES.  WE THEN USE ULTRASOUND, INTERFERRENTIAL CURRENT, LASER AND ART(ACTICE RELEASE THECHNIQE IS A STATE OF THE ART SOFT TISSUE PROTOCOL.  FOR YOUR INFORMATION ALL OF OUR FOOT SPECIALISTS ARE CERTIFIED IN ART AND MARZ HARDY, D.Ch., B.Sc., PODIATRIC MEDICINE WAS THE FIRST FOOT SPECIALIST TO BE CERTIFIED IN CANADA.  WE ALSO ARE ONE OF THE FEW CLINICS IN TORONTO WHICH EMPOYES SHOCKWAVE THERAPY WHICH IS A HIGHLY EFFECTIVE TREATMENT FOR PLANTAR FASCIITIS, HEEL SPURS, ARCH PAIN ANC ACHILLE'S TENDONITIS AS WELL AS METATARSALGIA.
