SAN ANTONIO FOOT AND ANKLE SURGEON, PODIATRIST DR. EDDIE DAVIS STATES, "OSTEOPOROSIS IS FREQUENTLY REFERRED TO AS THE 'SILENT CRIPPLER" SINCE IT OFTEN PROGRESSES WITHOUT ANY SYMPTOMS OR ISN'T DIAGNOSED  UNTIL A PERSON EXPERIENCES PAIN FROM A BONE FRACTURE.  THE POROUS NATURE OF BONES IN PEOPLE WITH OSTEOPOROSIS MAKES THEM MORE SUSCEPTIBLE TO BONE FRACTURES, ESPECIALLY IN THE FEET."

PODIATRIST DAVIS STATES, "BECAUSE THE BONES ARE IN A WEAKENED STATE, NORMAL WEIGHT-BEARING ACTIONS LIKE WALKING CAN CAUSE THE BONES IN THE FEET TO BREAK.  IN FACT, MANY PATIENTS VISIT THEIR FOOT AND ANKLE SURGEON SUFFERING FROM FOOT PAIN ONLY TO FIND OUT THAT THEY ACTUALLY HAVE A STRESS FRACTURE, WITHOUT EVER EXPERIENCING AN INJURY."

MY FOOT CLINIC IS PRESENTLY WAITING FOR APPROVAL OF OUR APPLICATION TO INSTALL AN X-RAY MACHINE FROM THE MOHLTC UNDER THE HARP ACT.  THIS MACHINE WILL BE THE LATEST IN TECHNOLOGY WITH CAESIUM DIGITAL SCREENS AND RADIATION SO LOW THAT WE WILL REQUIRE NO LEAD SHIELDING WHATSOEVER.  AS WE HAVE HIRED AN AMERICAN TRAINED PODIATRIST (DPM), THEREFORE WE WILL BE GETTING THE INSTALLATION ONE WAY OR ANOTHER, ALTHOUGH THE COLLEGE OF CHIROPODISTS AND IN PARTICULAR THE REGISTRAR, FELECIA SMITH DOES NOT THINK THAT A CHIROPODIST SHOULD BE ALLOWED TO ORDER, OWN OR OPERATE AN X-RAY MACHINE IN ONTARIO.  THIS IS QUITE UNFORTUNATE AS THIS CAN ONLY ENHANCE THE PROFESSIONS REPUTATION AND THE WELFARE OF OUR PATIENTS.
