FOOTPRINTS IN THE SAND

DR. HARDY STARTED PRACTICING AS  A CHIROPRACTOR IN 1980 AND TREATED EVERY POSSIBLE CONDITION IN EVERY REGION IN THE BODY.  SOMETIMES IT SEEMS SO STRANGE HOW RESTRICTED ONTARIO PODIATRIST AND ONTARIO CHIROPODIST ARE.  TECHNICALLY THEY ARE NOT ALLOWED TO TREAT THE ANKLE EVEN THOUGH IT IS COMPOSED 50% OF THE FOOT.  THEY ARE TRAINED AT SCHOOL ABOUT THE ENTIRE LOWER LIMB ALTHOUGH WHEN IN PRACTICE IN THIS PROVINCE CAN ONLY TREAT THE FOOT UP TO BUT NOT INCLUDING THE ANKLE JOINT.

THE REASON THAT I MENTION FOOT PRINTS IN THE SAND IS THAT OVER THE YEARS I HAD MANY OF MY PATIENTS WHO WERE RUNNERS COME BACK FROMA HOLIDAY DOWN SOUTH WHO DECIDED TO TRAIN AND RUN ON THE BEACH BAREFOOT ONLY TO END UP WITH PLANTAR FASCIITIS.  IT FEELS LIKE YOUR FOOT IS BEING SUPPORTED IN THE SAND AS IT SHAPES INSTANTLY TO THE SHAPE OF YOUR FOOT BUT IS EXTREMELY MALLEABLE AND OFFERS NO SUPPORT AND YOU SHOULD NEVER DO IT.  ALWAYS WEAR THE PROPER RUNNING SHOES WITH CUSTOM ORTHOTICS.

WE ARE STILL IN SUNNY ARUBA AND I SAW A SIGN FOR A CAFE WHICH WAS CALLED FOOTPRINTS IN THE SAND WITH THE 2 'O'S' MADE UP FEET.  VERY EYE CATCHING FOR ANY FOOT SPECIALIST.
