PODIATRIST, DR. GARY STONES, PRESIDENT OF THE NEW YORK STATE PODIATRIC MEDICAL ASSOCIATION STATES, "THERE ARE SIMPLE STRENGTHENING EXERCISES THAT CAN HELP PREVENT COMMON FOOT INJURIES.  FEET BEAR THE BRUNT OF IMPACT OF ANY WORKOUT.  BY WARMING UP PROPERLY AND COOLING DOWN WITH SOME MASSAGE TECHNIQUES, YOU CAN AVOID SOME OF THE MOST COMMON FOOT PAIN ASSOCIATED WITH EXERCISE."

IN NORTH AMERICA DUE TO RISING OBESITY RATES CERTAIN DISEASES SUCH AS HEART DISEASE AND DIABETES ARE ON THE RISE.  IT IS IMPORTANT THAT YOU MAINTAIN A HEALTHY WEIGHT AND A REGULAR EXERCISE ROUTINE.

TEXAS PODIATRIST, DR. RONICA HOLCOLME STATES, "ALL TOO OFTEN SYMPTOMS OF CLAUDICATION (CRAMPING) OR REST PAIN ARE OVERLOOKED OR IGNORED BY PATIENTS.  THEY ARE MISTAKEN FOR MUSCLE ACHE OR OLD AGE.  PAD TESTING IS SIMPLE AND EFFECTIVE WAY TO DETERMINE WHETHER THESE SYMPTOMS ARE ASSOCIATED WITH DECREASED BLOOD FLOW TO THE EXTREMITIES.  THE TEST RECORDS PRESSURE MEASUREMENTS BY PLACING CUFFS AROUND PATIENTS' ARMS CALVES, ANKLES AND ABOVE THE KNEES."

AT OUR FOOT CLINIC WE ALSO EMPLOY DOPPLER AND THE LATEST IN DPN DETECTION WITH THE NT-STAT COMPUTERIZED DIABETIC PERIPHERAL NEUROPATHY DETECTION.  IF YOU OR A LOVED ONE THINKS THEY MAY BE SUFFERING FROM DIABETES OR ANY OTHER TYPE OF FOOT CONDITION, PLEASE DO NOT HESITATE TO CONTACT MY FOOT CLINIC AT 416-465-8737.


NOVA SCOTIA HAS ONLY ONE FOOT SURGEON AND HE HAS A WAITING LIST OF OVER 3500 NAMES. THERE ARE SEVERAL PODIATRISTS ALSO BUT OBVIOUSLY THERE IS A REAL NEED FOR MORE FOOT CARE PROFESSIONALS TO HANDLE THE DEMAND.

PODIATRIST, DR. KATHERINE DUX, STATES, "DEPENDING ON YOUR FOOT TYPE AND RUNNING STYLES, SOME SHOES MAY WORK BETTER FOR YOU THAN SOMEONE ELSE.  MANY  SPECIALITY RUNNING STORES WILL RECORD YOU RUNNING AND HELP YOU FIND THE BEST SHOES.  BUT IF YOU DON'T HAVE ACCESS TO THAT IT IS BETTER THAT YOU BRING OR WEAR YOUR OLD GYM SHOES."

PODIATRIST DUX STATES, "THE SALES ASSOCIATE WILL LOOK FOR EXCESSIVE WEAR IN DIFFERENT AREAS OF THE SHOE.  WEAR ON THE INSIDE OF THE SHOE INDICATES OVERPRONATION OR A FLAT FOOT.  THESE RUNNERS BENEFIT FROM MOTION-CONTROL SHOES, WHICH ABSORB  THE IMPACT ALONG THE INSIDE OF THE FOOT.  EXCESSIVE WEAR ON TH OUTSIDE OF THE SHOE INDICATES UNDERPRONATION.  THESE RUNNERS DO WELL WITH A CUSHION SHOE.  UNIFORM WEAR ACROSS THE SOLE OF THE SHOE REFLECTS NORMAL WEAR.  THESE RUNNERS BENEFIT FROM A NEUTRAL OR STABILITY SHOE."
