PODIATRIST DR. ROBERT WEIL STATES, "A JOURNEY OF 1000 MILES STARTS WITH 'THAT FIRST STEP.'  SO IT IS WITH SPORTS.  IT STARTS WITH THE FEET -- RUNNING, JUMPING, STARTING, STOPPING, AND BALANCING.  VIRTUALLY ALL MOVEMENTS INVOLVE YOUR FEET AND THEIR ABILITY TO DO SOME AMAZING THINGS.  OFTEN TAKEN FOR GRANTED, THE FOOT IS A MECHANICAL MARVEL DESIGNED TO PERFORM SOME SPECIFIC FUNCTIONS DURING THE SO-CALLED GAIT CYCLE."

PODIATRIST WEIL ALSO STATES, "EXAMINATION OF THE INDIVIDUAL STANDING, WALKING, OR RUNNING CAN REVEAL SPECIFICS ABOUT THESE FOOT POSITIONS AND MECHANICS.  IDENTIFYING WEAK LINKS IN THE ALIGNMENT OF THE FOOT, ANKLE, KNEE, AND HIP STRUCTURES CAN BE VERY VALUABLE IN PREVENTING OVERUSE INJURIES.  STABILITY TESTS LIKE SINGLE-LEG BALANCE AND SQUAT POSITIONS CAN GIVE GOOD INFORMATION."

DR. HARDY ONLY KNOWS THIS TOO WELL AS A RETIRED CHIROPRACTOR.  POSTURE STARTS FROM THE FEET UP.  MANY TIMES MECHANICAL PROBLEMS AND DYSFUNCTION HAD THEIR ROOTS IN UNBALANCED FEET.  I TEACH ALL OF THE FOOT SPECIALISTS WHOM I EMPLY IN MY TORONTO FOOT CLINIC, ACADEMY FOOT AND ORTHOTIC CLINICS TO THINK ABOVE THE FEET AND THE BODY AS A WHOLE.  MANY TIMES BY CORRECTING FOOT IMBALANCES, FOOT, ANKLE, KNEE, HIP AND SPINAL PROBLEMS CAN BE CORRECTED.  STRUCTURE GOVERNS FUNCTION ALWAYS.  THAT IS WHY CUSTOM ORTHOTICS ARE SO IMPORTANT FOR TREATING STRUCTURAL IMBALANCES WITHIN THE BODY.

IF YOU OR A LOVED ONE REQUIRES HONEST, COMPETENT ADVICE OR FOOT CARE, PLEASE DO HESITATE TO CONTACT DR. HARDY AT 416-465-8737.
