TODAY IN TORONTO WE HAD AN AMAZING DAY WITH FRIENDS AND FAMILY.  WE AWOKE EARLY AND TOOK OUR BOAT FROM OUTER HARBOUR MARINA TO PIER 4 MARINA AND THEN WALKED TO THE ST. LAWRENCE MARKET WHERE WE HAD BACK BACON ON A BUN WITH MY NIECE, NEPHEW AND LOVELY WIFE, MARZ. FYI, DR. HARDY HAS BEEN GOING TO THE ST. LAWRENCE MARKET SINCE HE WAS 4 WITH HIS FAMILY.  ONCE A MONTH WE WOULD HEAD DOWN AT 6:00 FOR THE COVETED BACK BACON ON A KAISER. WE THEN HEADED TO LOBLAWS ON QUEENS QUAY AND BACK TO THE SHIP.

TODAY WE HAD AUSTRALIAN CROCODILE AND KANGAROO TENDERLOIN FOR LUNCH.  WE LIKE THE ST. LAWRENCE MARKET AS THEY HAVE NEARLY EVERY TYPE OF MAMMAL, FISH, ETC. POSSIBLE.  ALL OF OUR GUESTS HAD NEVER EATEN CROCODILE OR KANGAROO BEFORE, BUT TOTALLY ENJOYED IT.

TODAY WE SWAM, FISHED, WATER-SKIED, TUBED, SAW PARTS OF THE AIR SHOW AND CHILLED.  LAKE ONTARIO IS AND HAS ALWAYS BEEN AN AMAZING BODY OF WATER RIGHT AT OUR DOORSTEP.  THERE IS SOMETHING ROMANTIC ABOUT BEING CLOSE TO OR ON THE WATER.  OUR FARM, CONDO AND BOAT ARE ON THE WATER AND OUR FOOT CLINIC IS JUST A 10 MINUTE DRIVE TO THE HARBOUR.  WHY DRIVE 100 MILES UP NORTH WHEN ONE OF THE BEST BODIES OF WATER IS SITTING AT YOUR DOOR-STEP.

 

 


 

WHEN I WAS JUST A STUDENT AT SCHOOL IN CHIROPRACTIC COLLEGE I REMEMBER BEING TOLD NUMEROUS TIMES TO NOT BE JEALOUS OF A COLLEAGUE'S SUCCESS, BUT RATHER, TRY TO EMULATE THEM IF THEY WERE PROVIDING ETHICAL HEALTH CARE.

IN CHIROPRACTIC WE HAD MANY DETRACTORS, ESPECIALLY FROM THE MEDICAL COMMUNITY, THEREFORE FIGHTING AMONGST OURSELVES WOULD BE FRUITLESS AND SELF-DESTRUCTIVE.

UNFORTUNATELY IN ONTARIO THE DIVIDED FOOT CARE PROFESSION HAS NOT LEARNED THIS LESSON.  THE ENEMY (IF THERE IS ONE) IS FROM OUTSIDE, NOT WITHIN.  SOME PEOPLE SEEM INCAPABLE OF TRYING TO PLAY ON A LEVEL PLAYING FIELD AND RESORT TO UNDERHANDED TACTICS WHICH VERY OFTEN BORDER ON THE UNETHICAL.  

IT REALLY IS VERY EASY TO SUCCEED IN ANY PROFESSION OR BUSINESS.  JUST PROVIDE EACH AND EVERY PERSON WITH THE HIGHEST POSSIBLE CARE AND PRODUCTS, NOTHING MORE, NOTHING LESS.  

THE HARDER YOU WORK, THE LUCKIER YOU GET, ALWAYS!

TRYING TO KNOCK ANOTHER DUE TO YOUR OWN INADEQUACIES IS A SURE-FIRE PRESCRIPTION FOR FAILURE AND MANY TIMES IT WILL BACKFIRE ON YOU.  USE ALL YOUR ENERGY IN POSITIVE CONQUESTS AND YOU WILL SUCCEED.  

NEGATIVE ENERGY BEGETS NEGATIVE OUTCOMES WHILE POSITIVE ENERGY ALWAYS LEADS TO SUCCESS.  

LIFE IS TOO SHORT TO BE PLAYING CHILDISH GAMES.

IT IS SO UNFORTUNATE THAT SUCH A FEW INSECURE INDIVIDUALS CAN CAUSE SO MUCH DAMAGE.

DR. JOHN A. HARDY HAS SPENT HIS ENTIRE CAREER 100% DEDICATED TO PROVIDING HIGH QUALITY HEALTH CARE WITH GREAT SUCCESS.  

 


 

DR. ERIC HART, A NORTH DAKOTA PODIATRIST STATES, "MANY PEOPLE TRIM TOENAILS BY TAPERING THE CORNERS SO THE NAIL CURVES WITH THE SHAPE OF THE TOE.  BUT THIS TECHNIQUE MAY ENCOURAGE  THE TOENAIL TO GROW INTO THE SKIN OF YOUR TOE.  THE SIDES OR CORNERS OF THIS NAIL THEN DIGS INTO YOUR SKIN.  THE SURROUNDING SKIN IS LIKELY TO BECOME SWOLLEN AND TENDER AND CAN BECOME INFECTED.  THE PROBLEM MOST OFTEN OCCURS WITH THE BIG TOE."

PODIATRIST, HART ALSO STATES, "SHOE PRESSURE, INJURY, FUNGUS INFECTION, HEREDITY, AND POOR FOOT STRUCTURE ALSO MAY CAUSE INGROWN TOENAILS.  TRIM TOENAILS STRAIGHT ACROSS, SELECT PROPER SHOE SIZE, STYLE AND RESPOND TO FOOT PAIN IN A TIMELY MANNER."

DR. HARDY'S FOOT CLINIC PRACTICES CONSERVATIVE FOOT CARE WHERE WE AVOID MEDICATIONS AND SURGERY AT ALL COSTS, BUT SOMETIMES SURGICAL REMOVAL OF AN INGROWN TOENAIL IS UNAVOIDABLE.  MY FOOT CLINIC HAS 8 COMPUTERIZED PAINLESS INJECTION SYSTEMS WHICH MAKES THE SURGICAL REMOVAL OF INGROWN TOENAIL VIRTUALLY 100% PAINFUL.

IF YOU OR A LOVED ONE REQUIRES QUALITY FOOT CARE AND CUSTOM ORTHOTICS, PLEASE DO NOT HESITATE TO CONTACT US AT 416-465-8737.

WE ALWAYS TREAT OUR PATIENTS LIKE FAMILY.

MOST CHILDREN APPEAR TO HAVE FLAT FEET WHEN THEY FIRST START WALKING.  THIS IS MAINLY DUE TO POSTURE AND THE FATTY DEPOSITS IN THE FEET.  BECAUSE BABIES HAVE A RELATIVELY LARGE HEAD COMPARED TO THE REST OF THEIR BODY WHEN THEY ARE BORN AS WELL AS A LARGE TORSO THEY INITIALLY WALK WITH A WIDE STANCE, KNEES BENT AND THE FEET TURNED OUTWARDS.

ACCORDING TO PODIATRIST, DR. MONIQUE MITCHELL, "MANY OF THE PROBLEMS FOUND IN CHILDREN'S FEET ARE ASSOCIATED WITH GROWTH, OVERUSE, WEIGHT GAIN, AND POSTURAL CHANGES.  GENETICS ALSO PLAYS A CRUCIAL ROLE IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF YOUR CHILD'S FEET.  IT IS ESTIMATED THAT 10 TO 20 PERCENT OF CHILDREN HAVE FLAT FEET.  MOST CHILDREN GROW OUT OF IN-TOEING, AND TOE WALKING BY 24 MONTHS OF AGE."

DR. HARDY, OWNER OF ACADEMY FOOT AND ORTHOTIC CLINICS ENCOURAGES ALL OF THE CHIROPODISTS WHOM HE EMPLOYS TO HAVE FAMILIES BRING THEIR CHILDREN IN TO BE CHECKED BEFORE THE AGE OF 3.  THERE IS A SAYING THAT STATES 'AS THE TWIG IS BENT, SO GROWS THE TREE.'
