PODIATRIST DR. MICHAEL LAI FROM SINGAPORE GENERAL HOSPITAL STATES, "PLANTAR FASCIITIS IS A COMMON INJURY WHICH AFFECTS AN ESTIMATED ONE IN 10 RUNNING ENTHUSIASTS.  IT IS CAUSED BY MICRO-TRAUMA AND INFLAMMATION OF THE FASCIA (FIBROUS CONNECTIVE TISSUE THAT IS SIMILAR TO LIGAMENTS AND TENDONS) THAT RUN ALONG THE BOTTOM OF YOUR FOOT, FROM THE BALL TO THE HEEL."

PODIATRIST LAI ALSO STATES, "RUNNING IS A HIGH-IMPACT SPORT THAT, IF CONTINUED, WILL EXACERBATE THE PLANTAR FASCIITIS.  IF YOU ALLOW THIS CONDITION TO BECOME CHRONIC, IT CAN BE VERY DIFFICULT TO CURE.  WITHOUT PROPER CARE AND MANAGEMENT, YOU MAY END UP LIVING WITH INTERMITTENT FOOT PAIN FOR YEARS.  TRY NON-IMPACT EXERCISES INSTEAD, SUCH AS SWIMMING AND POOL-RUNNING."

AT ACADEMY FOOT AND ORTHOTIC CLINICS WE TREAT A LOT OF PATIENTS SUCCESSFULLY WITH THIS CONDITION.  WE HAVE ALL THE LATEST PHYSICAL THERAPY EQUIPMENT AS WELL AS SHOCKWAVE THERAPY WHICH IS THE LATEST TECHNOLOGY IN THE TREATMENT OF PLANTAR FASCIITIS.  OUR SUCCESS RATE IS VERY HIGH.  ONE THING THAT WE NEARLY ALWAYS INSIST ON IS THAT THE PATIENT INVEST IN CUSTOM MADE ORTHOTICS AS USUALLY THE INITIAL CAUSE OF THE PLANTAR FASCIITIS WAS FAULTY FOOT MECHANICS AND/OR FOOT WEAR.  IF YOU DO NOT CORRECT THE CAUSE, WHY TREAT THE SYMPTOMS?

IF YOU OR A LOVED ONE REQUIRES PROFESSIONAL, HONEST, COMPETENT ADVICE OR FOOT CARE, PLEASE DO NOT HESITATE TO CONTACT DR. HARDY AT 416-465-8737.  DR. HARDY IS THE OWNER OF TORONTO FOOT CLINIC, ACADEMY FOOT AND ORTHOTIC CLINICS WHICH IS VERY SUCCESSFUL AND WE TREAT OUR PATIENTS LIKE FAMILY ALWAYS!
