TORONTO BUNION FOOT CLINIC

THE PREVALENCE OF HALUX VALGUS (BUNIONS) IS 23% IN ADULTS AGED 18 TO 65 YEARS AND IS MORE PREVALENT IN WOMEN AND ADULTS OF INCREASING AGE.  MOST CASES OF BUNIONS DO NOT REQUIRE SURGERY AND ARE ONLY PERFORMED MAILY FOR COSMETIC REASONS. ONE IMPORTANT CAVEAT IS TO NEVER OPERATE ON A PATIENT WHO IS NOT EXPERIENCING PAIN AND WHEN IT IS DONE, ONLY AS A LAST RESORT WHEN ALL CONSERVATIVE AVENUES HAVE BEEN EXHAUSTED.

THIS IS WHERE ACADEMY FOOT AND ORTHOTIC CLINICS COMES IN AS WE ARE A FOOT CLINIC IN TORONTO THAT PRACTICES CONSERVATIVE FOOT CARE WERE WE AVOID SURGERY AND MEDICATIONS AT AT COSTS.  THERE ARE MANY ALTERNATIVES TO SURGERY AND WE HAVE THEM ALL INCLUDING PHYSICAL THERAPY, CUSTOM ORTHOTICS, EXERCISES, PROPER FOOTWEAR, ETC.  MY FOOT CLINIC HAS A VERY EXTENSIVE PHYSICAL THERAPY DEPARTMENT WHICH INCLUDES LASER, INTERFERENTIAL CURRENT SHOCKWAVE, ULTRASOUND, SHOCKWAVE THERAPY.  ALSO EACH ONE OF OUR 9 TREATMENT ROOMS HAS THIS THERAPY EQUIPMENT.  ALSO WE CAN OFFER OUR PATIENTS ACTIVE RELEASE THERAPY (ART), FOOT MOBILIZATION THERAPY (FMT), AND MANIPULATION.  WE TRY TO LEAVE NO STONE UNCOVERED WHEN IT COMES TO TREATMENT OPTIONS FOR OUR PATIENTS.
