DOWNTOWN TORONTO CHIROPODISTS DISCUSSES PATIENTS PARTNERSHIP IN HEALTH CARE.

AT ACADEMY FOOT AND ORTHOTIC CLINIC WE PRIDE OURSELF IN EDUCATING OUR PATIENTS IN THE IMPORTANCE OF PREVENTION.  IT IS MUCH EASIER AND MAKES MORE SENSE TO STAY HEALTHY BY TAKING PROPER CARE OF THIS INCREDIBLE MACHINE CALLED THE HUMAN BODY, THAN TO TRY TO REPAIR IT AFTER IT IS DAMAGED.  SOMETIMES THE DAMAGE IS IRREPAIRABLE OR ONLY PARTIALLY REPAIRABLE.  WE TRY TO SEE OURSELVES NOT AS AN ASPIRIN BY JUST TRYING TO TREAT SYMPTOMS, BUT TO GET AT THE ROOT CAUSE OF WHAT IS CAUSING THEIR SICKNESS OR INJURY.  IT IS MUCH BETTER TO GIVE A PATIENT ORTHOTICS WHEN THEY ARE PAIN FREE AND KEEP THEM THAT WAY THAN TO TRY TO GIVE THEM TO THEM WHEN THEY ALREADY HAVE A CONDITION SUCH AS HEEL PAIN, HEEL SPUR OR PLANTAR FASCIITIS AND THERE IS SOME PERMANENT DAMAGE DONE.  IT ISN'T EASY TO CONVINCE A PATIENT TO EXERCISE, EAT WELL, MAINTAIN THE CORRECT WEIGHT, WEAR THE PROPER FOOTWEAR AND ORTHOTICS, BUT THE DIVIDENDS ARE TREMENDOUS FOR THEIR HEALTH AND LONGEVITY OF THE PATIENT.

WHEN A PATIENT CONSULTS OUR CLINIC FOR A PARTICULAR AILMENT, WE NOT ONLY TREAT THEM AT OUR OFFICE WITH STATE OF THE PHYSICAL THERAPY EQUIPMENT SUCH AS LASER, INTERFERENTIAL CURRENT, ULTRASOUND, SHOCKWAVE, ACTIVE RELEASE TECHNIQUE, ETC., BUT WE ALSO EDUCATE THE PATIENT IN RICE (REST, ICE, COMPRESSION AND ELEVATION), GIVE THEM EXERCISES, STRETCHES, INSTRICT THEM IN PROPER FOOTWEAR, ETC.  THESE ARE SOME OF THE THINGS THAT SETS OUR OFFICE APART FROM MANY OTHER FOOT CLINICS.
