JUST AS THE REST OF YOUR BODY AGES, SO TOO DO FEET.  THE MAIN THING THAT HAPPENS TO AGING FEET IS THAT THE SWEAT GLANDS TEND TO BE LESS ACTIVE WHICH CAUSES DRY SKIN.  THAT IS THE REASON THAT HYDRATION IS MORE IMPORTANT IN SENIORS THAT YOUNGER PEOPLE.

THERE ARE MANY GOOD PRODUCTS OUT THERE AND THIS SHOULD BE DONE EVERY MORNING AFTER BATHING. ANOTHER IMPORTANT CONSIDERATION IS FOOT FILING TO REMOVE DEAD AND DRY SKIN.  YOUR FEET WILL LOOK BETTER AND FEEL BETTER INSTANTLY AND THIS ALSO HELPS TO PREVENT CRACKING AND SPLITTING.

ALSO, THERE IS NO SUBSTITUTE FOR PROFESSIONAL NAIL CARE FROM YOUR FOOT SPECIALIST, A CHIROPODIST.

IF YOU OR A LOVED ONE REQUIRE HONEST, COMPETENT FOOT CARE FROM PRACTITIONERS WHO LOVE THEIR PROFESSION AND PATIENTS, PLEASE DO NOT HESITATE TO CONTACT US AT 416-465-8737.

Orthotics are solely dedicated to assisting patients suffering from the aforementioned disorders through the development and provision of corrective, assistive, and supportive devicesOrthotics most commonly involves customized development and fabrication of an orthotic that addresses the specific needs of patients.

There are also custom orthotic devices that can be purchased right off the shelves and can be custom-fitted according to a patient’s needs and personal dimensionsin order to achieve the desired results. In most cases, orthotic devices are generally worn temporarily as they may then be removed once the patient successfully overcomes his/her condition. There are also cases where orthotics are worn permanently to improve impaired function caused by irreversible congenital disease or a degenerative condition.

Medical conditions that may need the utilization and application of Orthotics:

  • Diabetes- this medical condition is reported to be the leading cause of limb loss.
  • Obesity- chronic obesity most often leads to the development of Diabetes Mellitus, Type 2. Untreated obesity and diabetes can lead to limb amputation.
  • Cardiovascular diseases-the silent killer is also the second leading cause of limb amputation. People with heart problems are at an increased risk for amputation due to a lack of circulation to the distal parts of the body.
  • Scoliosis- the management of this progressive disease involves the utilization of scoliotic bracing to properly manage the curvature problems.
  • Plantar Fasciitis- a commonly painful inflammation of the sole of the foot that is easily identified by its tendency to cause pain in the morning.
  • Arthritis- Inflammation of the joints can cause a great deal of pain to patients. Orthotic devices can reduce the pain so they can resume normal daily activities with relative ease.
  • Weakness and Paralysis- patients who suffer from weakness and paralysis are most often prescribed to use reciprocating gait orthosis, a custom brace that greatly assists patients to properly stand and ambulate with minimal to no supervision.
