TORONTO FOOT CLINIC TREATS HEEL PAIN WITHOUT CORTISONE BY USING SHOCKWAVE THERAPY

DR. HARDY'S TORONTO FOOT CLINIC, ACADEMY FOOT AND ORTHOTIC CLINICS HAS NEVER AND WILL NEVER PRESCRIBE CORTISONE TO A PATIENT.  WE PRACTICE CONSERVATIVE AND PREVENTATIVE HEALTH CARE IN  MY FOOT CLINIC AND HAVE BEEN DOING SO SUCCESSFULLY SINCE 1980.

CORTISONE IS A DOUBLE-EDGED SWORD.  IT IS A VERY POWERFUL ANTI-INFLAMMATORY BUT ALSO CAUSES DELAYED HEALING AND MAKES THE TENDON BRITTLE AND PRONE TO RUPTURE.  IF A PERSON IS HAVING CORTISONE SHOTS, THE ABSOLUTE MAXIMUM NUMBER OF INJECTIONS ARE 3.  I HAVE HAD MANY PATIENTS OVER THE YEARS PRESENT WITH WHAT IS KNOWN AS THE 'POPEYE MUSCLE' WHERE THE TENDON HAS AVULSED FROM THE BONE DUE TO REPEATED CORTISONE INJECTIONS AND WEAKENING OF THE TENDON DUE TO BRITTLENESS.  AS MY FOOT CLINIC HAS ALWAYS PRACTICED CONSERVATIVE FOOT CARE WE WOULD NEVER, EVER SUGGEST THIS.

ACADEMY FOOT AND ORTHOTIC CLINICS HAS RECENTLY INVESTED WITH THE LATEST CUTTING EDGE TREATMENT FOR TENDONITIS AND OTHER CONDITIONS SUCH AS HEEL SPURS AND IS KNOW AS EXTRACORPOREAL SHOCKWAVE THERAPY.  HOW THIS WORKS IS THAT THE SHOCKWAVES START UP A CONTROLLED RE-INFLAMMATION WHICH NOW CAN BE USED IN A POSITIVE WAY AS WE HAVE THE PATIENT REST, ICE, STRETCH, ELEVATE AS WELL AS CONCURRENT THERAPY WITH ULTRASOUND, INTERFERENTIAL CURRENT, LASER, A.R.T., MOBILIZATION ETC.  THIS METHOD OF TREATMENT IS EXTREMELY EFFECTIVE WHEN USED IN CONJUNCTION WITH THE OTHER PHYSICAL THERAPIES AND A COMPLIANT PATIENT.  ALL THIS TREATMENT IS DONE CONSERVATIVELY (NATURALLY) WITHOUT THE USE OF MEDICATIONS AND SURGERY.

THE VAST MAJORITY OF FOOT PROBLEMS CAN BE TREATED IN A CONSERVATIVE METHOD WITHOUT THE NEED OF UNNECESSARY SURGERY.  ONE MUST BE COGNITIVE THAT IF YOU CONSULT A SURGEON MORE THAN LIKELY YOU WILL END UP HAVING SURGERY, A CHIROPRACTOR YOU WILL BE ADJUSTED, A MEDICAL DOCTOR YOU WILL RECEIVE MEDICATIONS AND SO ON.  NEVER, EVER ELECT TO HAVE SURGERY PERFORMED WITHOUT GETTING A SECOND OPINION.  IF YOU FIND A SURGEON WHO IS WILLING TO DO 'COSMETIC SURGERY' ON YOUR FEET, RUN!
