CANADIAN PODIATRIST, DR. JOSEPH STERN STATES, "THIS FOOT RASH IS THE MOST COMMON FUNGAL SKIN INFECTION.  IT'S CAUSED BY A FUNGUS THAT GROWS ON OR IN THE TOP LAYER OF SKIN.  FUNGI GROW BEST IN WARM WET PLACES, SUCH AS THE AREA BETWEEN THE TOES.  ATHLETE'S FOOT SPREADS EASILY, AND YOU CAN GET IT BY TOUCHING THE TOES OR FEET OF A PERSON WHO HAS IT."

 

PODIATRIST, DR. JOSEPH STERN ALSO STATES, "PEOPLE MOST OFTEN GET IT BY WALKING BAREFOOT ON CONTAMINATED SURFACES NEAR SWIMMING POOLS, ON POOL DECKS, OR IN LOCKER AND SHOWER ROOMS. THE FUNGI THEN GROW IN YOUR SHOES, ESPECIALLY IF THEY'RE SO TIGHT THAT AIR CAN'T CIRCULATE AROUND YOUR FEET.  

TREATMENT INCLUDES OVER-THE-COUNTER TOPICAL ANTI-FUNGAL MEDICATION OR A PRESCRIPTION FROM YOUR DOCTOR.  THE SKIN SHOULD CLEAR IN TWO TO SIX WEEKS.  TO PREVENT GETING ATHLETE'S FOOT, WEAR SOMETHING ON YOUR FEET TO AND FROM THE SWIMMING POOL.  IT ALSO HELPS TO WASH YOUR FEET WITH SOAP AND WATER DAILY, DRY THEM CAREFULLY AND WEAR MOISTURE-WICKING SOCKS IN RUNNING SHOES".

DR. HARDY'S TORONTO FOOT CLINIC HAS BEEN SUCCESSFULLY TRATING ATHLETE'S FOOT FOR MANY YEARS.  PLEASE CONTACT US AT 416-465-8737 TO RECEIVE HIGH QUALITY FOOT CARE AND CUSTOM ORTHOTICS.

SO FAR THE RENOVATION IS ON SCHEDULE AND THE PLUMBING IS ROUGHED IN AS WELL AS ALL ELECTRICAL.  

ALL WORK IS BEING DONE BY ME, DR. HARDY, WHOSE HOBBY HAS BEEN RENOVATION FOR MOST OF MY LIFE.  

I INSTALLED NEW OAK STAIRS AS WELL AS LAID THE HEATED GRANITE FLOORS AT THE BOTTOM AND TOP OF THE STAIRS.  

ALL OF THE BOARD IS UP AND MOST OF THE MUDDING DONE.  I HAVE DECIDED TO OPEN UP ONE OF THE WALLS TO EXPOSE THE ORIGINAL BRICK AND THE SANDBLASTER IS COMING SOON.  WAITING ON THE NEW WINDOWS WHICH SHOULD BE HERE WITHIN 2 WEEKS.

THESE 2 NEW ROOMS OF THE 3RD FLOOR WILL BE TOP OF THE LINE, NOTHING BUT THE BEST.  

ONE THING I NEVER DO IN MY FOOT CLINIC IS COMPROMISE.  

NOTHING BUT THE BEST, ALWAYS.  

THIS IS PART OF OUR SECRET OF SUCCESS.

WE WILL SOON BE STARTING WORK ON THE NEXT 4 ROOMS OF THE 3RD FLOOR.

NEXT IS TO PROVIDE COVERED PARKING OVER OUR PARKING LOT AND FURTHER OUR CLINICS CAPACITY.  

OUR EVENTUAL PLAN IS TO HAVE 6 FOOT SPECIALISTS WORKING 7 DAYS A WEEK.  

AT THE PRESENT TIME WE HAVE A 6 WEEK WAITING LIST FOR PATIENTS TO BE SEEN DUE TO OUR SUCCESS.

OUR SECRET OF SUCCESS IS TO TREAT EACH AND EVERY PATIENT LIKE DIAMOND AS IF THEY ARE PRECIOUS, AS THEY ARE.


 

 

PODIATRIST, DR. ROY CORBIN STATES, "CAREFULLY INSPECT EACH FOOT DAILY FOR INJURIES THAT COULD LEAD TO DANGEROUS ULCERS, ESPECIALLY IF THERE IS LOSS OF SENSATION IN THE FOOT.  PROBLEMS CAN CROP UP BEFORE YOU REALIZE IT.  KEEP TOENAILS TRIMMED, BUT DO SO VERY CAREFULLY AND NEVER CLIP THEM SHORTER THAN THE END OF THE TOE. CUT STRAIGHT ACROSS OR LIGHTLY FOLLOW THE NATURAL CURVE OF THE TOE.  USE AN EMERY BOARD TO SMOOTH AND AVOID ROUGH EDGES.  INSPECT THE INSIDES OF SHOES BEFORE WEARING FOR ANY ROUGH SPOTS THAT DEVELOP AND CAN LEAD TO A SORE.  FOR SOFT AND SUPPLE FEET, USE MOISTURIZER, BUT AVOID GETTING CREAM BETWEEN THE TOES WHERE THE SKIN IS VERY THIN."

DR. JOHN A. HARDY'S TORONTO FOOT CLINC TREATS MANY PATIENTS WITH DIABETES SUCCESSFULLY.  

IF YOU OR A LOVED ONE REQUIRES HONEST, COMPETENT FOOT CARE FROM AN EXCELLENT FOOT CARE TEAM, PLEASE DO NOT HESITATE TO CONTACT MY FOOT CLINIC AT 416-465-8737.

 

 

 


 

 DR. HARDY, HIS WIFE AND 7 FAMILY MEMBERS PARTICIPATED IN THE TOM LONGBOAT ISLAND RUN.  IT WAS A BEAUTIFUL DAY AND THE RACE WAS WELL ATTENDED.  THE RUN SUPPORTS CHARITIES THAT ARE COMMITTED TO MAKING A DIFFERENCE IN KIDS LIVES.  THEY WORK TOGETHER TO BREAK THE CYCLE OF CHILD POVERTY BY PROVIDING EDUCATIONAL SUPPORT TO CANADA'S AT RISK CHILDREN THROUGHOUT THEIR SCHOOL YEARS.

FYI, TOM LONGBOAT WAS A FAMOUS CANADIAN RUNNER WHO WON THE BOSTON MARATHON. HE WAS AN ONONDAGA RUNNER FROM THE SIX NATIONS OF THE GRAND RIVER FIRST NATION INDIAN RESERVE NEAR BRANTFORD, ONTARIO, AND FOR MUCH OF HIS CAREER THE DOMINANT LONG DISTANT RUNNER OF THE TIME.

RUNNING IS A GREAT WAY TO EXERCISE.  MY WIFE IS AN AVID RUNNER ALTHOUGH LATELY SHE HAS BEEN RUNNING AWAY FROM ME.  ALWAYS MAKE SURE YOU STRETCH BEFORE AND AFTER AND ALWAYS WEAR PROPER FOOTWEAR.  MAKE SURE THAT YOU SLOWLY SLOWLY WORK UP YOUR MILEAGE.
