  • FOOT TIPS FOR SKIERS BY TORONTO FOOT SPECIALIST, MARZ HARDY, D.Ch., B.Sc., PODIATRIC MEDICINE

ALL OF THE CLINICIANS AT ACADEMY FOOT AND ORTHOTIC CLINICS ARE AVID SKIERS.  OVER THE YEARS WE HAVE LEARNED A FEW TRICKS ON KEEPING YOUR FEET WARM AND COMFORTABLE WHILE ENJOYING YOUR DAY SKIING.  OUR FAMILY HAS BEEN SKIING TOGETHER AS A FAMILY SINCE WE FIRST MET AND STARTED OUR KIDS AT 2 YEARS OF AGE.  THEY ARE FEARLESS AND ENJOY SKIING.  WHAT BETTER WAY CAN A FAMILY SPEND THE DAY ON A COLD WINTER DAY TOGETHER, TAKE A BREAK FOR A WARM LUNCH, AND THEN AT THE END OF THE DAY END UP IN THE HOT TUB, A GREAT DINNER AND AN EARLY EVENING.  ONE TRICK IS TO PUT BABY POWDER IN THE BOOTS BEFORE YOU HEAD OUT.  IT ABSORBS THE MOISTURE FROM YOUR FEET AND HELPS TO KEEP YOUR FEET WARM.  WATER ABSORBS HEAT 25 TIMES FASTER THAN AIR, THEREFORE IT IS VERY IMPORTANT TO KEEP YOUR FEET DRY IN COLD CONDITIONS.  WE HAVE ULTRAVIOLET LIGHTS AND BOOT DRYERS TO THOROUGHLY DRY YOUR BOOTS OVERNIGHT AND PREPARE THEM FOR THE NEXT DAY.  ONE OF THE THINGS THAT SKIERS HAVE TODAY THAT WAS NOT AROUND YEARS AGO ARE FOOT WARMERS THAT CAN BE PLACED IN THE SKI BOOTS AND GLOVES OR MITTS THAT CAN KEEP YOU FEET WARM FOR UP TO 8 HOURS.  NOTHING WORSE THAN THAN FROZEN FEET OR HANDS WHICH COULD POSSIBLY RESULT IN FROSTBITE.  ACTUALLY DR. HARDY HAS ELECTRIC BOOT WARMERS IN HIS SKI BOOTS WHICH ARE RECHARGED OVERNIGHT, WARM AND TOASTY RESULTS IN A HAPPY SKIER.

ONE OF THE BEST WAYS TO ENJOY YOUR DAY SKIING AND IMPROVE YOUR BALANCE, PERFORMANCE AS WELL AS COMFORT IS TO BE SURE THAT YOU HAVE CUSTOM ORTHOTICS IN YOUR SKI BOOTS.  USUALLY THESE ARE TRANSFERABLE TO YOUR SKATES AND REGULAR SHOES.  OUR FOOT CLINIC SPECIALIZES IN CUSTOM ORTHOTICS AND HAS BEEN DOING SO SINCE 1980.  IF YOU OR A LOVED ONE ARE CONSIDERING ORTHOTICS, PLEASE DO NOT HESITATE TO CONTACT OUR CLINIC AT 416-465-8737.

BROUGHT TO YOU BY DR. HARDY AND MARZ HARDY, D.Ch., B.Sc., PODIATRIC MEDICINE, TORONTO CHIROPODIST AND TORONTO FOOT SPECIALIST AND THE TEAM FROM ACADEMY FOOT AND ORTHOTIC CLINICS.
