  • ARE YOU SUFFERING FROM HEEL PAIN? CONTACT DR. HARDY TODAY! WE CAN HELP!

PAINFUL HEELS ARE NO FUN AND DR. HARDY ONLY KNOWS ALL TO WELL AS I HAVE BEEN THERE TOO. ABOUT 20 YEARS AGO I BROKE MY LEG ON A SUNDAY NIGHT PLAYING HOCKEY AND WAS IN A CAST FOR 8 WEEKS AND WAS WALKING FROM TREATMENT ROOM TO TREATMENT WITH ALL MY WEIGHT ON ONE FOOT.  I DEVELOPED PLANTAR FASCIITIS SO SEVERE THAT I COULD BARELY STAND ON MY GOOD LEG.  EVENTUALLY EVERYTHING WAS RESOLVED AFTER MUCH SELF TREATMENT.

MY TORONTO FOOT CLINIC IS EQUIPPED WITH ALL OF THE LATEST PHYSICAL THERAPY DEVICES AND SOFT TISSUE PROTOCOLS FOR VERY SUCCESSFUL MANAGEMENT OF HEEL PAIN OR PLANTAR FASCIITIS.  MOST CASES OF HEEL PAIN ARISE FROM OVERUSE AND/OR IMPROPER BIOMECHANICS. 9 TIMES OUT OF 10 TIMES CUSTOM ORTHOTICS ARE REQUIRED TO ALLEVIATE AND PREVENT TO CONDITION FROM REOCCURRING.  WE WILL USE A HEEL SPUR PAD IN THE ORTHOTIC WHEN THE PATIENT PRESENTS WITH HEEL PAIN.  THIS COMPRESSES THE HEEL FAT PAD MAKING IT THICKER AND MORE CUSHIONING FOR THE HEEL BONE OR CALCANEOUS.

WE THEN SET THE PATIENT UP ON  SERIES OF PHYSICAL THERAPY TREATMENTS WHERE ULTRASOUND, LOW VOLT AND INTERFERENTIAL CURRENT ARE USED.  THE PATIENT IS ALWAYS INSTRUCTED IN HOME CARE WITH R.I.C.E. (REST, ICE, COMPRESSION AND REST).

3 OF MY FOOT SPECIALISTS ARE CERTIFIED IN A.R.T. (ACTIVE RELEASE THERAPY) WHICH IS A PATENTED SOFT TISSUE SYSTEM WHICH IS EXTREMELY EFFICIENT IN THE TREATMENT OF SOFT TISSUE INJURIES SUCH AS PLANTAR FASCIITIS AND HEEL PAIN.

OUR LAST PIECE OF ARTILLERY FOR MANAGING HEEL PAIN AND PLANTAR FASCIITIS IS SHOCKWAVE THERAPY WHICH BREAKS DOWN THE ADHESIONS IN ORDER FOR THE TISSUE TO HEAL NORMALLY.  WE HAVE AN EXCELLENT SUCCESS RATE IN TREATING HEEL PAIN AND PLANTAR FASCIITIS.

IF YOU OR A LOVED ONE REQUIRES HONEST, COMPETENT ADVICE OR QUALITY FOOT CARE, PLEASE DO NOT HESITATE TO CONTACT DR. HARDY, OWNER OF TORONTO FOOT CLINIC, ACADEMY FOOT AND ORTHOTIC CLINICS AT 416-465-8737.  TORONTO FOOT SPECIALISTS WHO LOVE THEIR PROFESSION AND ARE DEDICATED TO THEIR PATIENTS.  REMEMBER, WE ALWAYS TREAT OUT BELOVED PATIENTS LIKE FAMILY!
