PODIATRIST, DR. MARK BEERS STATES, "ONE OF THE MOST COMMON COMPLAINTS FROM HIS PATIENTS IS HEEL PAIN, OFTEN DIAGNOSED AS PLANTAR FASCIITIS.  PLANTAR FASCIITIS CAUSES STABBING PAIN THAT USUALLY OCCURS WITH YOUR FIRST STEP IN THE MORNING.  IT OFTEN TAKES A WHILE FOR THE FOOT TO LIMBER UP AND THE PAIN TO DECREASE.  HOWEVER THE PAIN OFTEN RETURNS AFTER EXTENDED WALKING OR LONG PERIODS OF STANDING."

PODIATRIST BEERS ALSO STATES, "THAT MORE THAN 90% OF PLANTAR FASCIITIS DON'T REQUIRE SURGERY.  INITIALLY, PLANTAR FASCIITIS TREATMENT CONSISTS OF ANTI-INFLAMMATORY MEDICATIONS, HEEL STRETCHING EXERCISES, NIGHT SPLINTS AND/OR SHOE INSERTS."

AT DR. HARDY'S TORONTO FOOT CLINIC, ACADEMY FOOT AND ORTHOTIC CLINICS OUR APPROACH IS DIFFERENT.  FIRST WE HAVE NEVER HAD A PATIENT WHO REQUIRED SURGERY FOR THIS CONDITION.  SECONDLY WE AVOID THE USE OF MEDICATIONS. ONLY IN VERY RARE SITUATIONS HAS A PATIENT REQUIRED STEROID INJECTIONS TO HELP.  STEROIDS ARE DANGEROUS AS THEY MAKE THE TENDON BRITTLE AND SUSCEPTIBLE FOR AVULSION AND/OR DEGENERATIVE CHANGES.  DR. HARDY ALWAYS PRACTICES CONSERVATIVE FOOT CARE WHERE WE AVOID AT ALL COSTS SURGERY AND MEDICATIONS AS THERE ARE NONE THAT DON'T CARRY SERIOUS SIDE EFFECTS.  DR. HARDY PRACTICES CONSERVATIVE HEALTH CARE WERE WE AVOID MEDICATIONS AND SURGERY AND HE HAS IMPARTED THIS WISDOM TO ALL HIS FOOT SPECIALIST WHOM HE EMPLOYS.  

BELIEVE IT OR NOT THERE IS ONE TORONTO PODIATRIST WHO WILL REMAIN UNNAMED THAT PRACTICES COSMETIC FOOT SURGERY WHERE HE SHAVES OFF TISSUE FROM THE TOES SO THEY WILL MORE EASILY FIT INTO POINTY HIGH HEELS.  COMPLETE AND UTTER MADNESS!

IF YOU OR A LOVED ONE REQUIRES HONEST, COMPETENT ADVICE OR FOOT CARE, PLEASE DO NOT HESITATE TO CONTACT DR. HARDY, OWNER OF TORONTO FOOT CLINIC, ACADEMY FOOT AND ORTHOTIC CLINICS AT 416-465-8737.  FOOT SPECIALISTS WHO TREAT THEIR PATIENTS LIKE FAMILY, ALWAYS!
