  • DR. HARDY, OWNER OF ACADEMY FOOT AND ORTHOTIC CLINICS STATES THAT CHILDREN ARE THE KEY IN PREVENTING FUTURE FOOT PROBLEMS

DR. HARDY, AN EXTREMELY SUCCESSFUL RETIRED CHIROPRACTOR LEARNED VERY EARLY THAT IT IS MUCH BETTER TO PREVENT A PROBLEM THEN TO TRY TO CORRECT IT ONCE IT HAPPENS, ESPECIALLY IF THERE ARE ALREADY SECONDARY CHANGES THAT HAVE TAKEN PLACE.  

THERE IS A FAMOUS SAYING 'AS THE TWIG IS BENT, SO GROWS THE TREE.'

MANY TIMES I WOULD HAVE A PATIENT PRESENT WITH PLANTAR FASCIITIS WHICH WAS CAUSED BY A STRUCTURAL FAULT CALLED OVERPRONATION WHERE THE ARCHES OF THE FOOT HAVE COLLASPED.  THIS IS USUALLY A GENETIC PREDISPOSITION WHICH THEY WERE BORN WITH.  WE PRESCRIBE CUSTOM ORTHOTICS AND WHATEVER THERAPY IS NECESSARY TO CORRECT THE CONDITION.  WHEN THEY ARE IN MY CLINIC AND I SEE THAT THEIR CHILDREN HAVE THE SAME CONDITION I RECOMMEND CUSTOM ORTHOTICS FOR THEM TOO.  MORE OFTENTHAN NOT I HEAR THE REPLY, "THEY DON'T HAVE ANY PROBLEMS YET."

I ALWAYS TRAIN MY STAFF THAT WE ARE NOT A BAND AID OR AN ASPIRIN.  WE ARE NOT HERE TO MASK SYMPTOMS.  WE ARE HERE TO PROVIDE OUR BELOVED PATIENTS WITH ADVICE AND GUIDANCE SO THAT THEY MAY MAKE INFORMED DECISIONS REGARDING THEIR HEALTH AND FUTURE LONGEVITY AS MEMBERS OF SOCIETY ON THE PLANET EARTH. 

PREVENTION HAS ALWAYS AND REMAINS THE KEY TO HEALTH.  INFORMED DECISIONS FROM RESPECTD HEALTHCARE PROVIDERS.  IN DR. HARDY'S TORONTO FOOT CLINIC, ALL OF MY FOOT SPECIALIST PRACTICE CONSERVATIVE FOOT CARE WHERE WE AVOID MEDICATIONS AND SURGERY AS OFTEN AS IS HUMANLY POSSIBLY.  THERE IS NO DRUG OR SURGICAL PROCEDURE WHICH DOES NOT CARRY SERIOUS SIDE EFFECTS, INCLUDING DEATH.
