DR. HARDY'S TORONTO FOOT CLINIC, ACADEMY FOOT AND ORTHOTIC CLINICS THINKS ABOVE THE FOOT!

DR. JOHN A. HARDY, OWNER OF TORONTO FOOT CLINIC, ACADEMY FOOT AND ORTHOTIC CLINICS OWNED AND OPERATED 2 OF THE MOST SUCCESSFUL CHIROPRACTIC CLINICS IN ONTARIO BEFORE HE RETIRED TO EXCLUSIVELY GUIDE HIS FOOT CLINIC.  AS A RESULT OF THIS HE HAS TRAINED ALL OF THE 5 FOOT SPECIALISTS THAT HE NOW EMPLOYS AS WELL AS THE 6 SUPPORT STAFF THAT OUR JOB DOES NOT END WITH THE FOOT AND TO THINK OF THE BODY AS A WHOLE.  THAT IS WHY SUCH THINGS AS OVERALL POSTURE, DIET, EXERCISE, WEIGHT ARE OFTEN VERY IMPORTANT ASPECTS TO CONSIDER AND NOT TO BE PIGEONHOLED TO TREATING THE FOOT ONLY.  ALWAYS TREAT THE BODY AS A WHOLE.  

LETS SAY IN THE CASE OF A DIABETIC PATIENT.  WHAT GOOD WOULD IT BE TO JUST TREAT A DIABETIC ULCER WITHOUT EXPLORING THE ORIGINS AND WHAT ELSE COULD BE DONE TO CORRECT A PARTICULAR CONDITION.  I ALSO TRAIN THEM NOT TO THINK ABOUT THE BANDADE OR ASPIRIN APPROACH TO MEDICINE WHERE YOU ONLY TREAT THE SYMPTOMS BUT RATHER LOOK TO THE AETIOLOGY OR CAUSE OF THE CONDITION AND CORRECT THAT.

ANOTHER VERY IMPORTANT ASPECT TO OUR APPROACH TO FOOT CARE IS THAT WE PROVIDE CONSERVATIVE FOOT CARE WHENEVER POSSIBLE.  THIS MEANS THAT WE AVOID THE USE OF ALL MEDICATIONS AND SURGERIES WHENEVER PRACTICAL AND POSSIBLE.  THERE IS NO SURGICAL PROCEDURE OR MEDICATION WHICH DOES NOT CARRY WITH IT THE RISK OF SERIOUS SIDE EFFECTS SOMETIMES FATAL.

IF YOU OR A LOVED ONE REQUIRES HONEST, COMPETENT ADVICE OR FOOT CARE FROM FOOT SPECIALISTS WHO REALLY CARE, PLEASE DO NOT HESITATE TO CONTACT DR. HARDY, OWNER OF ACADEMY FOOT AND ORTHOTIC CLINICS AT 416-465-8737.  REMEMBER, WE ALWAYS TREAT OUR PATIENTS LIKE FAMILY!
