  • PODIATRY / CHIROPODY IS THE BRANCH OF MEDICINE DEVOTED TO THE STUDY, DIAGNOSIS AND TREATMENT OF THE FOOT, ANKLE AND LOWER EXTREMITY

PODIATRY IS A BRANCH OF MEDICINE DEVOTED TO THE STUDY, DIAGNOSIS AND MEDICAL TREATMENT OF DISORDERS OF THE FOOT, ANKLE AND LOWER EXTREMITY.  THERE ARE 33 JOINTS IN OUR FOOT AND OUR ENTIRE BODY WEIGHT IS SUPPORTED BY IT.  IDEALLY, NO AREA OF THE FOOT SHOULD TAKE EXTRA WEIGHT.  WHEN THERE IS UNEVEN DISTRIBUTION OF WEIGHT, AND UNEVEN DISPLACEMENT OF PRESSURE ON OUR FEET, PRESSURE CAN OCCUR AND CASE SUCH DISORDERS AS CORNS, CALLUSES, INGROWN TOENAILS, KNEE PAIN, AND EVEN BACK PAIN.  SOMETIMES THIS UNEVEN DISTRIBUTION OF WEIGHT CAN TAKE OVER 20 YEARS TO MANFEST ITSELF.

THAT IS WHY AT ACADEMY AND FOOT CLINICS WE DO NOT TREAT DISEASE WITH AN 'ASPIRIN' APPROACH, BUT RATHER LOOK FOR THE CAUSE OF THE PROBLEM AND THEN TRY TO CORRECT THEM.  THE TRADITIONAL MEDICAL APPROACH IS TO TREAT SYMPTOMS. NO SYMPTOMS, NO PROBLEM.  AT OUR CLINIC WE DON'T CARE ABOUT SYMPTOMS, BUT WHAT ARE THE FACTORS CAUSING THEM.  THAT'S WHY WE DON'T WAIT FOR A PATIENT WHO HAS HEEL PAIN OR ARCH PAIN TO PRESENT AND THEN GET THEM ORTHOTICS.  IT WOULD HAVE BEEN MUCH BETTE TO CORRECT A PATIENTS POSTURAL DEFICIENCIES BEFORE THEY CAUSE A MEDICAL CONDITION.

BROUGHT TO YOU BY DR. HARDY AND MARZ HARDY, D.Ch., B.Sc., PODIATRIC MEDICINE, TORONTO CHIROPODIST AND TORONTO FOOT SPECIALIST AND THE TEAM FROM ACADEMY FOOT AND ORTHOTIC CLINICS.
