PODIATRIST STATES THAT PARENTS NEED TO BE AWARE OF LINK BETWEEN OBESITY AND FOOT PAIN

PODIATRIST DR. ROBERT RUSSO STATES, "WE WANT PARENTS TO UNDERSTAND THE CONNECTION BETWEEN PEDIATRIC FOOT HEALTH AND COMBATING CHILDHOOD OBESITY BECAUSE KIDS WHO ARE PAIN-FREE ARE MORE LIKELY TO STAY ACTIVE AND ENJOY EXERCISE, OUTDOOR GAMES AND PLAYING SPORTS."

PODIATRIST RUSSO ALSO STATES, "AS PRESIDENT OF THE OF THE NEW YORK STATE PODIATRIC MEDICAL ASSOCIATION (NYSPMA) 1,200 DOCTOR-MEMBERS ARE FOCUSED ON EDUCATING PARENTS REGARDING THE IMPORTANCE OF HAVING HEALTHY FEET AND SHOES THAT FIT PROPERLY.  SINCE SPORTS CAN PLAY A KEY ROLE IN CHILDREN'S ACTIVITIES, PARENTS AND OTHER CAREGIVERS SHOULD BE AWARE OF THE INJURIES THAT CAN RESULT FROM RUNNING, TURNING AND TWISTING, AND CONTACT SPORTS.  FOOT PAIN AT ANY AGE IS NEVER NORMAL."

DR. HARDY'S TORONTO FOOT CLINIC, ACADEMY FOOT AND ORTHOTIC CLINICS IS VERY INTERESTED IN THE OVERALL HEALTH OF ALL OF OUR PATIENTS AND WE DO NOT FOCUS ENTIRELY ON JUST THE FOOT. WE TREAT THE BODY AS A WHOLE AND EDUCATE OUR PATIENTS ON DIET, WEIGHT, EXERCISE, ETC.  EACH PATIENT ON THEIR INITIAL VISIT HAS THEIR BLOOD PRESSURE, WEIGHT, BMI, HIEGHT, POSTURE ETC. RECORDED BEFORE THEY SEE THE FOOT SPECIALIST.  WIEGHT ESPECIALLY IS VERY IMPORTANT WITH REGARDS TO SEVER CONDITIONS SUCH AS DIABETES AND HEART DISEASE AS WELL AS OVERALL STRESS TO THE BODY, NOT TO MENTION THE ADDED STRESS TO THE FOOT WHICH HAS TO BEAR THE FULL WEIGHT.  BLOOD PRESSURE AND WEIGHT ARE TAKEN FOR OUR BELOVED PATIENTS AT NO EXTRA COST ANYTIME OUR PATIENTS REQUEST IT.

IF YOU OR A LOVED ONE REQUIRES COMPETENT, HONEST ADVICE OR QUALITY FOOT CARE OR CUSTOM ORTHOTICS, PLEASE DO NOT HESITATE TO CONTACT US AT 416-465-8737.

REMEMBER WE ALWAYS TREAT OUR PATIENTS LIKE FAMILY!
