Podiatrists Drs. Steven Rosenberg and Jaleh Hoorfar state, "first, look for shoes with good arch support. It won't be an easy task. Most fashion-geared shoes don't provide adequate support. To tell if yours do, look for padding that is thicker around the edges and where your arch naturally fits in the shoe. For the longest-lasting and most comfortable wear, look for good quality suede or leather shoes. Leather allows your foot to "breathe," helping it feel more comfortable and reducing odors. Leather also stretches, conforming to the size and shape of your foot. Fabric won't do that. And if you purchase a quality, soft leather, your shoes will last for years."
 
At our Toronto foot clinic, Academy Foot and Orthotic Clinics we educate all of our patients in proper foot wear.  The root cause of many people's foot problems originate with their foot wear. Having a proper foundation and proper support is essential for proper foot health.

New York Podiatrist, Dr. Michael Weisman states, "plantar fasciitis is becoming an epidemic. It is estimated that 10 percent of the population suffers from the condition. The plantar fascia is a ligament on the sole of the foot that supports the arch and connects the toes to the heel. Inflammation of this ligament can cause moderate to debilitating pain when standing and walking. The pain is most noticeable in the morning or after a period of sitting, when the ligament is short and tight. I attributes the increase in cases of plantar fasciitis to overuse, inappropriate footwear, tight muscles of the lower leg, and excess body weight."
 
At our Toronto foot clinic, Academy Foot and Orthotic Clinic we treat many cases of plantar fasciitis very successfully using conservative procedures only.  our clinic philosophy is to avoid drugs and surgery whenever possible.  Whenever we can avoid drugs and surgery the patient is always better off.

Podiatrists Drs. John Connors and Hal Ornstein state, "put down the flimsy flip-flops and wear a pair of sneakers to the beach instead. Wearing generic flip-flops can do some serious damage to your feet. However, they don't have to be given up completely. If you want to continue wearing flip-flops, you have to change the types you’re wearing. Or you have to switch between the regular flip-flops and a more supportive shoe throughout the day.It is important to wear sandals with arch support to prevent overpronation, which is when your arch collapses too much and your ankle and foot roll inward, distributing your weight unevenly and affecting your overall body alignment. Sometimes even wearing sandals with a two-inch heel can actually be beneficial for your foot arch and help prevent overpronation."At our Toronto foot clinic, Academy Foot and Orthotic Clinics we always advise our patients on the proper foot wear such as avoiding high heels and always wear supportive foot wear and whenever possible custom orthotics.

Podiatrist, Dr. Lowell Weil, Jr. states, "Pain in the ball of the foot is often misdiagnosed as Morton’s neuroma,Deformities of the bones in the ball of the foot are sometimes the actual problem. An overly long second metatarsal bone may cause pain, damage to a ligament, a change in toe position, and even dislocation of the toe joint."

At Academy Foot and Orthotic clinics we are not quick to classify all pain in the lateral forefoot as Morton's Neuroma as often times it is not.  The 6 Chiropodists / Foot Specialists employed at our foot clinic take pride in providing each patient with a thorough and comprehensive case history and examination in order to help us better determine the cause of your pain in order to provide you with a treatment plan which will provide results.

If you or a loved on requires honest, competent advice, foot care or custom orthotics than look no further than our Toronto foot clinic, Academy Foot and Orthotic Clinics.
