VA PODIATRIST STATES THAT MOST FOOT PROBLEMS RESULT FROM FUNCTIONAL AND STRUCTURAL IMBALANCES

 

 

 

PODIATRIST, DR MITCHELL WASKINS STATES, "THE MAJORITY OF PEOPLE'S FOOT PAIN IS FUNCTIONAL.  YOU'RE BORN WITH A FOOT STRUCTURE THAT IS NOT EXACTLY NORMAL, SO YOU GET MINOR MUSCLE IMBALANCES THAT CAUSE STRESS AND STRAINS THAT DON'T BELONG THERE.  THIS CAUSES PROBLEMS LIKE CHRONIC HEEL PAIN (PLANTAR FASCIITIS), BUNIONS, HAMMERTOES OR CALLUSES.  UNFORTUNATELY, THERE ARE TREATMENTS FOR THESE CONDITIONS. MOST, WITH THE EXCEPTION OF SURGERY, ARE NOT PAINFUL."

ACADEMY FOOT AND ORTHOTIC CLINICS HAS HAD A SPECIAL INTEREST IN THE BIOMECHANICS OF THE FOOT SINCE 1980.  WE BELIEVE THAT STRUCTURE GOVERNS FUNCTION.  WE ALSO BELIEVE IN CONSERVATIVE FOOT CARE WHERE WE AVOID THE USE OF MEDICATIONS OR SURGERY WHENEVER POSSIBLE DUE TO THE FACT THAT DRUGS AND SURGERY CAN HAVE MANY UNDESIRABLE SIDE EFFECTS AND IN SOME CASES LIFE THREATENING.  NEVER WORTH THE RISK IF THEY CAN BE AVOIDED.

ONE OF THE BEST WAYS TO IMPROVE THE FUNCTION OF A STRUCTURALLY CHALLENGED FOOT IS TO PRESCRIBE CUSTOM ORTHOTICS.  WE RECEIVE EXCELLENT RESULTS WITH NO SIDE-EFFECTS WHEN WE PRESCRIBE ORTHOTICS.  I ALWAYS TELL MY PATIENTS THAT THE WORST THING THAT CAN HAPPEN WHEN WEARING ORTHOTICS IS THAT THEY WILL FEEL BETTER.

IF YOU OR A LOVED ONE REQUIRES HONEST, COMPETENT FOOT CARE OR CUSTOM ORTHOTICS, THAN LOOK NO FURTHER THAN ACADEMY FOOT AND ORTHOTIC CLINICS.
