  • DR. HARDY, OWNER OF ACADEMY FOOT AND ORTHOTIC CLINICS SHARES SOME INFORMATION REGARDING ATHLETIC FOOTWEAR

Whether you are a professional athlete or play sports just for fun, the demands made on your feet and lower limbs can lead to a range of injuries, including blisters, sprained ankles, torn ligaments, shin splints, knee pain, lower back pain and other joint or muscle problems. Added to these are common complaints such as corns, calluses and Athlete's Foot. Your running style, quality of footwear, and even minor limb length differences can contribute to injury.

Here are some tips for athletic foot care:

  • Wash your feet every day, and dry thoroughly.
  • Wear only good quality, well-fitting cotton socks.
  • Always use the correct shoe for each sport and surface.
  • Get in shape. Being overweight or out of shape places added stress on the feet. Condition yourself gradually with stretching exercises for 15 to 20 minutes (warm-up and cool-down periods) before and after any activity.
  • Wear correct shoes. Footwear should be given the same consideration as any other piece of sporting equipment. Sports shoes should protect as much as possible, be durable, and should be right for the sport and surface.

Dr. Hardy, owner of Toronto Foot Clinic, Academy Foot and Orthotic Clinics has been providing quality health care and custom orthotics since 1980.  If you or a loved one requires honest, competent advice or quality foot care or custom orthotics, please do not hesitate to contact Academy Foot and Orthotic Clinics at 416-465-8737 today!  Remember, we always treat our beloved patients like family!
