  • DO YOU NEED CUSTOM TORONTO ORTHOTICS? THINK ACADEMY FOOT AND ORTHOTIC CLINICS FIRST!

DR. HARDY'S TORONTO FOOT CLINIC, ACADEMY FOOT AND ORTHOTIC CLINICS HAS BEEN PROVIDING TORONTONIANS WITH HIGH QUALITY CUSTOM ORTHOTICS SINCE 1980.  YOUR POSTURE STARTS WITH YOUR FEET AND IF THEY ARE MISALIGNED THEN THIS AFFECTS EACH AND EVERY JOINT ABOVE THE FOOT INCLUDING THE ANKLE, KNEE, HIP, PELVIS AND SPINE.  THE MAJORITY OF PEOPLE ARE BORN WITH A GENETIC DEFICIENCY KNOWN AS OVER PRONATION WHERE THE LONGITUDINAL ARCH HAS COLLAPSED CAUSING MEDIAL ROTATION OF THE LOWER LIMB.  THIS IN TURN AFFECTS THE BIOMECHANICS OF THE LOWER LIMB AND SPINE AS WELL AS A PERSON'S GAIT.  CUSTOM ORTHOTICS WHEN CORRECTLY PRESCRIBED AND FABRICATED CORRECTLY RESTORE THE POSITION OF THE FOOT BY PLACING IT IN THE NEUTRAL NON-WEIGHT BEARING POSITION, THEREBY ALIGNING THE ENTIRE LOWER LIMB, RESTORING THE NORMAL FUNCTION OF THE JOINTS AND SPINE.  MANY KNEE, HIP AND SPINAL PROBLEMS HAVE THEIR ORIGINS FROM MISALIGNED FEET.

THERE ARE THREE DIFFERENT METHOD EMPLOYED IN CASTING OF THE ORTHOTIC INCLUDING FOAM, PLASTER AND THE LATEST METHOD WHICH IS 3 DIMENSIONAL COMPUTERIZED MON-WEIGHT BEARING LASER AND THE PREFERRED METHOD AT MY FOOT CLINIC.  IT IS THE MOST ACCURATE AND ALSO HAS THE FASTEST TURN-AROUND FOR THE FINISHED PRODUCT FROM THE LAB AS THE PRESCRIPTION IS E-MAILED DIRECTLY FROM OUR CLINIC TO THE LAB.  WE ALWAYS ENSURE AT THE TIME OF FITTING THAT THE PATIENT IS HAPPY WHEN THEY LEAVE THE OFFICE AND WE FOLLOW UP 4 WEEKS LATER TO MAKE SURE THAT THE PATIENT IS COMPLIANT AND THAT THE ORTHOTICS ARE COMFORTABLE.  WE STAND BY OUR SERVICE AND PRODUCTS 100% AND DO WHATEVER IT TAKES TO MAKE SURE THE PATIENT IS SATISFIED EVEN IF IT MEANS RECASTING THE PATIENT.  MISTAKES HAPPEN SOMETIMES BUT WE WILL ALWAYS GO THE EXTRA MILE TO ENSURE THAT WE DO EVERYTHING HUMANLY POSSIBLE TO CORRECT ANY PROBLEMS WHICH MAY OCCUR IN MY FOOT CLINIC, ALWAYS.
