  • IN PODIATRIST STATES THAT OBESITY IS A GROWING PROBLEM AFFECTING THE FEET

PODIATRIST DR. MICHAEL NIRENBERG STATES, "A GROWING HEALTH ISSUE WE ARE SEEING IS CARRYING TOO MUCH WEIGHT, WHETHER THIS IS 10 POUNDS OR 100.  IT DOES NOT TAKE MUCH EXTRA WEIGHT TO CAUSE A FOOT PROBLEM, SUCH AS HEEL PAIN.  IF YOU WALK 6,000 STEPS A DAY AND YOU ARE 20 POUNDS OVERWEIGHT, THAT ENDS UP BEING THOUSANDS OF POUNDS OF EXTRA PRESSURE CRASHING DOWN ON THE HEEL AT THE END OF THE DAY."

"WORSE, IF YOUR HEEL HURTS, IT IS HARDER TO WALK OR DO OTHER EXERCISE, WHICH CREATES A VICIOUS CYCLE WHERE YOU JUST GAIN MORE WEIGHT AND YOUR HEEL HURTS MORE.  SOME OVERWEIGHT PEOPLE BELIEVE IF THEY LOSE THE WEIGHT, THEIR HEEL, FOOT, OR ANKLE PAIN WILL GO AWAY.  THIS IS OFTEN NOT THE CASE.  ONCE A TENDON OR LIGAMENT IS INJURED, IT NEEDS TO BE TREATED," STATES PODIATRIST NIRENBERG.

AT OUR FOOT CLINIC WE TRY TO EDUCATE OUT PATIENTS IN HEALTH AND ONE OF THE IMPORTANT INGREDIENTS IS PROPER NUTRITION AND PROPER WEIGHT OF THE PATIENT AS WELL AS EXERCISE.  IF YOU OR A LOVED ONE ARE SUFFERING FROM ANY TYPE OF FOOT CONDITION, PLEASE DO NOT HESITATE TO CONTACT OUR FOOT CLINIC AS 416-465-8737 FOR HONEST, COMPETENT FOOT CARE.
