PODIATRIST STATES THAT THAT POORLY-FIT SNEAKERS CONTRIBUTE TO FOOT CONDITIONS

PODIATRIST DR. PAUL LANGER STATES, "ARE YOU SHOPPING FOR NEW RUNNING SHOES THIS SPRING?  WITH CONFLICTING STUDIES ABOUT WHICH TYPE (MOTION CONTROL, MINIMALIST) HELPS REDUCE INJURY, IT'S HARD TO FIGURE OUT THE BEST PAIR TO PICK.  WHAT WE DO KNOW IS THAT ILL-FITTING SNEAKERS CAN CONTRIBUTE TO A NUMBER OF FOOT AILMENTS, INCLUDING PLANTAR FASCIITIS AND ACHILLES TENDONITIS."  PODIATRIST LANGER IS AUTHOR OR 'GREAT FEET FOR LIFE.'

AT DR. HARDY'S TORONTO FOOT CLINIC, ACADEMY FOOT AND ORTHOTIC CLINICS WE ALWAYS HAVE OUR PATIENTS BRING IN THE FOOTWEAR THAT THEY WEAR TO MAKE SURE THAT THEY ARE THE CORRECT SIZE AND TYPE FOR THAT INDIVIDUAL PERSON AND LIFESTYLE.  THE MOST IMPORTANT THING TO REMEMBER WHEN FIT OF THE SHOE IS CONCERNED IS WITH CHILDREN.  MANY TIMES PARENTS LEAVE THE CHILD IN A SHOE WHICH THEY HAVE OUTGROWN OR CONVERSELY GIVE THE CHILD A HAND-ME-DOWN WHICH IS MUCH TO LARGE SO THEY CAN GROW INTO IT.  NEVER A GOOD IDEA.  ANOTHER PROBLEM WE FREQUENTLY ENCOUNTER IN OUR FOOT CLINIC IS A CHILD THAT HAS BEEN PRESCRIBED AN ORTHOTIC AND IT IT IS SEVERAL SIZES TOO SMALL AS THEY HAVE GROWN.  THIS IS POSSIBLY WORSE IN SOME CASES THAN NOT WEARING THE ORTHOTIC.

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