WE HAVE JUST SPENT 7 GLORIOUS DAYS IN SUNNY ARUBA.  WE WON THIS WEEK AT A CHARITY SILENT ACTION AND ENDED UP AT A FIVE STAR HOTEL IN 1 BEDROOM CONDO WITH FULL KITCHEN.  EVERYTHING WAS PERFECT.  THE BEACHES ARE BEAUTIFUL, WHITE SUGAR SAND, UNLIMITED CHAIRS AND LOUNGERS WITH UMBRELLAS.  LOT OF WATER SPORTS,  THE OCEON IS 85 DEGEES, NOT ONE STREET VENDOR HASSLING US.  THE SHOPS AND RESTAURANTS ARE WORLD CLASS AND REASONABLY PRICED.  THE BEST PART WAS IT IS EXTREMELY SAFE, A VERY LOW CRIME RATE AND THE ISLAND IS SPOTLESS.  I WOULD RECOMMEND THIS DESTINATION TO EVERYONE.  MOST OF THE PEOPLE WE MET HAVE BEEN THERE MANY TIMES.  WE HAVE ALREADY BOOKED FOR NEXT YEAR.

BUT AFTER ONE WEEK AWAY FROM YOUR PATIENTS, IT IS TIME TO GET BACK TO MY TRUE LOVE!  TREATING  MY PATIENTS AND HELPING OTHERS.

BROUGHT TO YOU MY MARZ HARDY, D.Ch., B.Sc., PODIATRIC MEDICINE.


OUR FEET ARE EXPOSED MORE THAN EVER DURING THE SUMMER. MANY PEOPLE DON'T REALIZE HOW IMPORTANT IT IS  TO TAKE PROPER CARE OF THEIR FEET IN THE SUMMER AS THEY MANY TIMES ARE IN SANDALS OR BAREFOOT AT THE BEACH AND POOLSIDE.  ALWAYS APPLY SUNSCREEN TO THE FOOT IF YOU WILL BE WEARIN SANDALS OR AT THE BEACH.  MANY PEOPLE DONT REALIZE THAT YOU SHOULD PUT SUNSCREEN ON THE SOLES OF YOUR FEET IF YOU WILL BE SUNNING.  MALIGNANT MELANOMA OF THE FOOT IS QUITE COMMON.  YOU SHOUD REAPPLY AFTER SWIMMING OR WALKING BAREFOOT IN THE SAND.

FOR HONEST COMPETENT ADVICE ON FOOT CARE, PLEASE TO HESITATE TO CONTACT OUR FOOT CLINIC AT 416-465-8737.

DR. JOHN HARDY SPENT OVER 30 YEARS PRACTICING CHIROPRACTIC IN TORONTO IN 2 VERY BUSY  PRACTICES.  MOST OF MY PRACTICE DEALT WITH BIOMECHANICS OF THE BODY AND SPINE.  IF THE FOUNDATION OF THE BODY (FEET) IS IMBALANCED, THIS CAN HAVE PROFOUND EFFECTS ON THE REST OF THE BODY.  MANY TIMES I HAVE HAD A PATIENT WITH A KNEE PROBLEM OR SPINAL PROBLEM CORRECTED WHEN THE PATIENT WAS PRESCRIBED CUSTOM ORTHOTICS WHICH CORRECTED THE IMBALANCE IN THE FEET AND THE REST OF THE SPINE.AND BODY.

IF YOU ARE EXPERIENCING PAIN IN YOUR KNEES, HIP, ANKLE OR SPINE YOU SHOULD CHECK TO SEE IF YOU HAVE AN IMBALANCE IN YOUR FEET AND COULD POSSIBLY BENEFIT FROM CUSTOM ORTHOTICS.  IF YOU WOULD LIKE HONEST, COMPETENT ADVICE AND FOOT CARE, PLEASE DO NOT HESITATE TO CONTACT OUR FOOT CLINIC AT 416-465-8737.

CUSTOM ORTHOTICS ARE USUALLY PRESCRIBED WHEN A PATIENT PRESENTS WITH SOME TYPE OF FOOT, HEEL OR ANKLE PAIN. THERE IS USUALLY  A STRUCTURAL DEFICIENCY PRESENT, MORE OFTEN THAN NOT IT IS OVERPRONATION.  A CASTING IS TAKEN WITH THE FOOT PUT IN THE NORMAL NEUTRAL POSITION.  ORTHOTICS CAN IMPROVE YOUR POSTURE, REDUCE PAIN AND IMPROVE THE FUNCTION OF YOUR JOINTS.  THEY HELP REDUCE WEAR AND TEAR ON THE FOOT AND ALL JOINTS ABOVE THE FOOT AND REDUCE DEGENERATIVE CHANGES IN THE JOINTS.

ORTHOTICS CAN IMPROVE YOUR PERFORMANCE BY INCREASING THE LINE OF DRIVE AND TRANSFERENCE OF POWER FROM YOU FOOT TO YOUR SHOE, SKATE OR SKI BOOT.  THE VAST MAJORITY OF PROFESSIONAL ATHLETES WEAR CUSTOM ORTHOTICS BECAUSE THEY IMPROVE YOUR PERFORMANCE AND DECREASE THE RISK OF INJURY.

IF YOU OR A LOVED ONE THINKS THAT CUSTOM ORTHOTICS MAY HELP YOU, PLEASE DO NOT HESITATE TO CONTACT OUR FOOT CLINIC AT 416-465-8737 FOR HONEST, COMPETENT ADVICE AND CARE.
