IF YOU ARE CONSIDERING CONSULTING A FOOT SPECIALIST IN TORONTO, ALWAYS CONSULT A CHIROPODIST.

 THEY ARE HIGHLY TRAINED PRIMARY HEALTH CARE PRACTITIONERS WHO ARE LICENCED TO PERFORM SURGERY AND PRESCRIBE MEDICATIONS. NO MEDICAL DOCTOR'S REFERRAL IS REQUIRED!

IF YOU CONSULT THE 4 CHIROPODISTS THAT I EMPLOY AT ACADEMY FOOT AND ORTHOTIC CLINICS YOU WILL RECEIVE EXCELLENT FOOT CARE AND ORTHOTICS.  THAT IS MY PERSONAL GUARANTEE!

BROUGHT TO YOU BY DR. JOHN A. HARDY, OWNER OF ACADEMY FOOT AND ORTHOTIC CLINICS.


I, DR. JOHN A. HARDY STARTED PRACTICE IN 1980 AS A CHIROPRACTOR AND RAN 2 OF THE BUSIEST CLINICS IN ONTARIO.  I RETIRED IN 2010 TO MANAGE MY FOOT CLINIC EXCLUSIVELY.  RIGHT FROM THE GET GO I HAD A SPECIAL INTEREST IN CUSTOM ORTHOTICS.  I FOUND THESE DEVICES TO BE INVALUABLE IN THE CORRECTION OF POSTURAL FAULTS AND CAN HAVE PROFOUND EFFECT NOT ONLY ON THE FOOT AND GAIT BUT ASO EVERY JOINT ABOVE THE FOOT INCLUDING THE ENTIRE SPINE.

MANY TIMES WHEN I DISPENSED AN ORTHOTIC TO A PATIENT THEY COULD FEEL THE POSITIVE EFFECTS FROM THE FIRST TIME THEY WORE THEM, NOT ALWAYS BUT USUALLY.  I HAD AMAZING RESULTS BY INCORPORATING ORTHOTICS INTO MY PRACTICE AND THIS CONTINUES UNTIL THIS DAY AS THE MAJORITY OF OUR PATIENTS WEAR THEM.

WE USE ONLY THE FINEST LABS IN ORDER TO PROVIDE OUR PATIENTS WITH THE HIGHEST QUALITY ORTHOTICS POSSIBLE.  IF YOU OR A LOVED ONE WOULD LIKE HONEST, COMPETENT ADVICE, FOOT CARE OR CUSTOM ORTHOTICS, PLEASE DO NOT HESITATE TO CONTACT MY FOOT CLINIC AT 416-465-8737.

P.S.  WHEN I DISPENSED MY FIRST ORTHOTIC, MARZ WAS STILL PLAYING IN THE SANDBOX!


THERE IS A BROAD BAND OF FASCIA IN THE ARCH OF THE FOOT KNOWN AS PLANTAR FASCIA.  THIS CAN BECOME INJURED WITH MICRO TEARS AND BECOME INFLAMED, A CONDITION WHICH IS REFERRED TO AS PLANTAR FASCIITIS.  ANYONE WHO HAS EXPERIENCED THIS CONDITION WILL KNOW HOW PAINFUL THIS CONDITION CAN BE, ESPECIALLY THE FIRST FEW STEPS AFTER INACTIVITY OR FIRST THING IN THE MORNING.

MY FOOT CLINIC IS TOTALLY PREPARED TO MANAGE THIS PAINFUL CONDITION SUCCESSFULLY.  NEARLY ALWAYS THE CONDITION ORIGINATED DUE TO A POSTURAL DEFECT IN THE FOOT ALONG WITH OVERUSE OR INJURY AND HAS TO FIRST BE ADDRESSED WITH CUSTOM ORTHOTICS,  WE MAKE SURE THE PATIENT IS USING THE CORRECT FOOTWEAR.  WE THEN APPLY THE R.I.C.E. REGIME WHICH IS REST, ICE (3 TIMES A DAY FOR 15 MINUTES MINIMUM), COMPRESSION AND ELEVATION WHENEVER POSSIBLE.

INITIALLY WE WOULD TREAT THE PATIENT ON A DAILY BASIS WITH PHYSICAL THERAPY, INTERFERENTIAL CURRENT, LASER AND ULTRASOUND.  ALL OF OUR CHIROPODISTS ARE TRAINED IN ACTIVE RELEASE TECHNIQUE WHICH IS A PATENTED SOFT TISSUE THERAPY WHICH PROVIDES EXCELLENT RESULTS.   LAST BUT NOT LEAST IS WE USE SHOCKWAVE THERAPY WHICH IS REALLY EFFECTIVE FOR TREATING PLANTAR FASCIITIS.  OUR SUCCESS RATE WHEN THE PATIENT IS COMPLIANT IS PHENOMENAL.

IF YOU OR A LOVED ONE WOULD LIKE HONEST, COMPETENT ADVICE OR FOOT CARE FROM ANY TYPE OF FOOT CONDITION PLEASE DO NOT HESITATE TO CONTACT DR. HARDY AT 416-465-8737.

REMEMBER, ALWAYS CONTACT A CHIROPODIST FIRST  FOR HEALTHY FEET!
