FYI,  BOTH MARZ AND NICOLE PASSED THE WRITTEN PORTION OF THEIR COURSE WITH FLYING COLOURS.  BY AUGUST THEY WILL HAVE COMPLETED THE WHOLE PROGRAM AND WILL THEN BE ABLE TO PRESCRIBE A MUCH WIDER RANGE OF PRESCRIPTIONS TO THEIR PATIENTS.  THIS WILL BE A GREAT ASSET TO THEIR PRACTICE.  

MOST FOOT SPECIALISTS, INCLUDING FOOT DOCTORS, PODIATRISTS AND CHIROPODISTS AGREE THAT HEEL PAIN PLANTAR FASCIITIS AND ARCH PAIN ARE ONE OF THE MOST COMMON FOOT CONDITIONS THAT THEY SEE IN THEIR FOOT CLINIC.  IN OUR FOOT CLINIC WE ALWAYS TRY TO FIND OUT WHAT THE CAUSE OF THE PROBLEM IS AND THEN MAKE THE APPROPRIATE CORRECTION.  IT IS NO GOOD JUST TRYING TO ADDRESS THE SYMPTOMS (PAIN, SWELLING AND/OR DECREASED RANGE OF MOTION) IF YOU DON'T CORRECT THE UNDERLYING CAUSE.  THE PROBLEM WILL JUST REOCCUR.  USUALLY THE BIGGEST REASON IS IMPROPER FOOT MECHANICS.  FORTUNATELY THIS PROBLEM CAN USUALLY BE CORRECTED WITH CUSTOM MADE ORTHOTICS.  THESE ARE MADE FROM EITHER 3D COMPUTERIZED LASER CASTINGS, FOAM OR PLASTER.  ALL 3 METHODS ARE EMPLOYED IN OUR OFFICE DEPENDING ON THE CIRCUMSTANCES.  TO TREAT YOUR SYMPTOMS WE USE ICE, EXERCISES, REST, STRETCHING, LASER, INTERFERENTIAL, ULTRASOUND AND SHOCKWAVE THERAPY.  WE ALSO LOOK AT YOUR FOOTWARE, THE ACTIVITIES YOU ARE INVOLVED IN AND THE SURFACES YOU ARE STANDING ON.  DID YOU KNOW THAT A CAUSE OF DEVELOPING HEEL PAIN, ARCH PAIN  OR PLANTAR FASCIITIS IS RUNNING ON THE BEACH ON SAND BAREFOOT.  IT FEELS GOOD AND GETS RID OF YOUR CALLOUSES, BUT IS MORE THAN LIKELY TO LEAD TO PROBLEMS.  UNTIL NEXT BLOG, YOUR FOOT SPECIALIST, MARZ
