PODIATRIST STATES THAT BOTH LOW AND HIGH ARCHES CAN BENEFIT FROM ORTHOTICS

PODIATRIST DR. MARLENE REID FROM NAPERVILLE, IL STATES, "IF YOU HAVE FLAT FEET OR HIGH ARCHES, YOU'RE MORE LIKELY TO GET PLANTAR FASCIITIS, AN INFLAMMATION OF THE TISSUES ALONG THE BOTTOM OF YOUR FOOT.  ITS THE LEADING CAUSE OF HEEL PAIN.  WITHOUT PROPER ARCH SUPPORT, YOU CAN HAVE PAIN IN YOUR HEELS, ARCH, AND LEG.  YOU CAN ALSO DEVELOP BUNIONS AND HAMMERTOES, WHICH CAN BECOME PAINFUL."

PODIATRIST REID ALSO STATES, "FOR THESE CONDITIONS, SEE A PODIATRIST TO GET FITTED FOR CUSTOM INSERTS FOR YOUR SHOES.  THEY CAN BE PRICEY, BUT THEY CAN REALLY HELP.  THEY ARE LIKE EYEGLASSES FOR YOUR FEET."

IN ONTARIO YOU CAN CONSULT A CHIROPODIST FOR CUSTOM MADE ORTHOTICS.  DR. HARDY'S CLINIC HAS BEEN SPECIALIZING IN CUSTOM ORTHOTICS SINCE 1980 AND WE HAVE ALL METHODS OF CASTING AVAILABLE BUT WE PREFER THE COMPUTERIZED, NON-WEIGHT BEARING LASER METHOD WHICH IS THE MOST ACCURATE AND THE TURN AROUND TIME FROM THE LAB IS THE FASTEST.

IF YOU OR A LOVED ONE REQUIRES PROFESSIONAL, HONEST, COMPETENT ADVICE OR FOOT CARE, PLEASE DO NOT HESITATE TO CONTACT DR. HARDY, OWNER OF TORONTO FOOT CLINIC, ACADEMY FOOT AND ORTHOTIC CLINICS AT 416-465-8737.
