PHYSICIAN, DR. JAMES VUKINICH STATES, "EVERYONE HAS HEARD THAT STILETTO HEELS ARE NOT GOOD FOR YOUR FEET.  HIGH HEELS PUSH THE BODY'S WEIGHT TO THE FRONT OF THE FOOT, CAUSING UNNATURAL STRESS ON BONES.  BUT DID YOU KNOW THAT FLIP-FLOPS AND FLIMSY FLATS  CAN CAUSE HARM?  TOO-FLAT SHOES CAN EXACERBATE PROBLEMS WITH LOW-ARCH FEET, THE MOST COMMON TYPE OF FOOT.  THERE ARE 3 TYPES OF FEET: HIGH ARCH, NORMAL AND LOW ARCH.  ONLY ABOUT 20% OF THE POPULATION HAS FEET CLASSIFIED AS 'NORMAL.'  SOME PEOPLE HAVE HIGH-ARCHED FEET.  THESE ARE PRONE TO SUPINATION -- THAT IS, ROLLING OUTWARD.  MOST PEOPLE HAVE LOW-ARCHED FEET, WHICH ARE PRONE TO PRONATION -- ROLLING INWARD.  FLAT SHOES THAT DON'T OFFER THE PROPER SUPPORT CAN MAKE THIS WORSE."

ONE OF THE THINGS THAT ACADEMY FOOT AND ORTHOTIC CLINICS PRIDES ITSELF WITH IS EDUCATING EACH OF OUR PATIENTS ABOUT PROPER FOOT WEAR.  EVERYONE OF OUR NEW PATIENTS RECEIVES A THOROUGH ORTHOPEDIC AND NEUROLOGICAL EXAMINATION, WEIGHT, HEIGHT, BLOOD PRESSURE, ETC.  JUST ANOTHER WAY THAT MY TORONTO FOOT CLINIC STRIVES TO GO ABOVE AND BEYOND WITH EACH AND EVERY PATIENT AND IS THE REASON FOR OUR INCREDIBLE SUCCESS.  WE NOW HAVE 6 FOOT SPECIALISTS EMPLOYED WITH 3 CHIROPODISTS WORKING SIMULTANEOUSLY, 7 DAYS PER WEEK.

IF YOU OR A LOVED ONE REQUIRES HONEST, COMPETENT HIGH QUALITY FOOT CARE AND CUSTOM ORTHOTICS, PLEASE DO NOT HESITATE TO CONTACT US AT 416-465-8737.

BROUGHT TO YOU BY DR. JOHN A. HARDY, OWNER OF ACADEMY FOOT AND ORTHOTIC CLINICS.
