PODIATRIST, DR. JODIE SENGSTOCK STATES, "FROSTBITE IS A SERIOUS TISSUE DESTROYING DISORDER.  IT IS SOMETHING THAT IS NOT OFTEN ANTICIPATED IN RELATIVELY MILD WINTER TEMPERATURES.  THE MICHIGAN MEDICAL ASSOCIATION (MPMA) ENCOURAGES EVERYONE TO STAY ALERT AND TAKE PRECAUTIONS TO AVOID THE UNNECESSARY DISTRESS OF FROSTBITE.  FROSTBITE CAN OCCUR IN AS LITTLE AS 30 MINUTES, EVEN IN TEMPERATURES FROM 30 F - 40 F."

PODIATRIST SENGSTOCK ALSO STATES, "WHEN YOUR OUT IN THE COLD, YOUR BODY WORKS HARD TO STAY WARM BY ALTERING BLOOD FLOW TOWARDS YOUR HEART AND LUNGS.  THIS LEAVES YOUR EXTREMITIES - ARMS, LEGS AND FEET - VULNERABLE TO COLD INJURY, ESPECIALLY TOES AND FINGERS.  DEPENDING ON THE SEVERITY OF THE EXPOSURE, FROSTBITE CAN EFFECT THE SKIN OR UNDERLYING TISSUE.  SKIN WILL APPEAR WAXY, WHITE, OR GRAYISH.  ANY EXPOSURE SHOULD BE EVALUATED AND TREATED BY A PHYSICIAN."

I MUST ADMIT THAT WE DO NOT USUALLY SEE VERY MANY PATIENTS WHO PRESENT WITH FROSTBITE.  ACADEMY FOOT AND ORTHOTIC CLINICS IS A FULL SERVICE TORONTO FOOT CLINIC.  WE HAVE AN EXTENSIVE PHYSICAL THERAPY DEPARTMENT WHICH INCLUDES LASER, ULTRASOUND, INTERFERENTIAL CURRENT, SHOCKWAVE, MYOPERCUSION, CRYOTHERAPY PLUS LASER FOR FUNGAL TOENAIL FUNGUS.

IF YOU OR A LOVED ONE REQUIRES HONEST, COMPETENT ADVICE, HIGH QUALITY FOOT CARE OR CUSTOM ORTHOTICS PLEASE CONTACT ME AT 416-465-8737.

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