TORONTO CHIROPODIST DISCUSSES NEW TREATMENT FOR PLANTAR FASCIITIS

 

AT OUR TORONTO FOOT CLINIC WE ARE USING THE LATEST TECHNOLGY IN THE TREATMENT OF PLANTAR FASCIITIS KNOWN AS ESWT OR EXTRACORPORAL SCHOCKWAVE THERAPY.  THIS DEVICE INCORPORATES HIGH FREQUENCY AND INTENSITY ENERGY WAVES TO MECHANICALLY BREAK DOWN THE CONNECTIVE AND SCAR TISSUE AND ALLOW THE BODY TO HEAL NORMALLY.  

IN OUR OFFICE WE ALSO USE ULTRASOUND, LASER AND INTERFERRENTIAL CURRENT AS AN ADJUNCT TO THE SHOCKWAVE THERAPY.  AS WELL WE HAVE THE PATIENTS TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR THEIR HEALING BY USING ICE, STRETCHING EXERCISES AND REST AS WELL AS WEARING THE CORRECT FOOTWEAR.  

ANOTHER THING THAT MAKES OUR OFFICE STAND OUT FROM MOST OTHER FOOT CLINICS  IS THE FACT THAT MARZ WAS THE FIRST FOOT SPECIALIST IN CANADA TO BE CERTIFIED IN A.R.T  ACTIVE RELEASE TECHNIQUE AS WELL AS NICOLE .  THIS THERAPY EMPLOYS A SERIES OF SPECIFIC SOFT TISSUE THERAPIES WHICH ARE VERY EFFECTIVE IN TREATING MANY DIFFERENT TYPES OF FOOT AND ANKLE INJURIES. A.R.T. THERAPY IS WIDELY USED IN THE TREATMENT OF SPORTS INJURIES IN PROFESSIONAL ATHLETES.  ALSO NEARLY IN ALL CASES THE PATIENT NEEDS CUSTOM MADE ORTHOTICS TO CORRECT THE UNDERLYING POSTURAL DEFICIT.

BROUGHT TO YOU BY YOUR TORONTO FOOT SPECIALIST AND TORONTO CHIROPODIST, MARZ HARDY, D.Ch., B.Sc., PODIATRIC MEDICINE AND THE TEAM FROM ACADEMY FOOT AND ORTHOTIC CLINICS.
