  • TOP 10 FOOT AILMENTS WE SEE IN OUR TORONTO FOOT CLINIC DISCUSSED BY MARZ HARDY, D.Ch., B.Sc., PODIATRIC MEDICINE

DUE TO OUR HIGH SUCCESS RATE IN TREATING FOOT CONDITIONS OUR FOOT CLINIC IS VERY BUSY.  WE TREAT ALL TYPES OF FOOT CONDITIONS BUT THE TOP TEN THAT WE TREAT ARE AS FOLLOWS;

1. HEEL PAIN AND PLANTAR FASCIITIS

INFLAMMATION OF THE LONG BAND OF CONNECTIVE TISSUE RUNNING FROM THE HEEL TO THE FOREFOOT IS CALLED PLANTAR FASCIITIS.  PAIN AT THE BASE OF THE CALCANEOUS IS CALLED HEEL PAIN.  WE TREAT THIS WITH ULTRASOUND, LASER, INTERFERENTIAL, SCHOCKWAVE AND ACTIVE RELEASE THERAPY.

2. FUNGAL TOENAILS

NAIL FUNGUS IS A CHRONIC, HARD TO TREAT WITH TOPICAL MEDICATIONS FUNGAL INFECTION OF THE NAILS.  WE TREAT IT IN OUR OFFICE WITH THE LATEST TECHNIQUE WITH NO SIDE EFFECTS, LASER.

3. INGROWN NAILS

INGROWN NAILS IS A COMMON, PAINFUL CONDITION WHERE THE NAIL  GROWS LATERALLY INTO THE TISSUE OF THE TOE.  THIS IN MANNY CASES REQUIRES MINOR SURGERY.  OUR FOOT CLINIC USES PAINLESS INJECTION WHERE THE PATIENT FEELS NO PAIN WHATSOEVER.

4. PLANTAR WARTS

THIS A VIRAL INFECTION WHICH SETS UP IN THE SOFT TISSUE OF THE SOLE OF THE FOOT.  WE TREAT THIS CONDITION VERY SUCCESSFULLY WITH LASER AND CHEMICAL MEANS.

5. ACHILLES TENDONITIS

ACHILLES TENDONITIS IS INFLAMMATION OF THE TENDON AT THE BACK OF THE HEEL.  IT IS ONE OF THE FEW TENDONS THAT IS ENCLOSED IN A SHEATH.  IT IS MORE COMMON IN ATHLETES.  IT CAN BE VERY PAINFUL BUT SUCCESSFULLY TREATED THE SAME WAY AS PLANTAR FASCIITIS.  OUR CLINIC RECEIVES EXCELLENT RESULTS TREATING ACHILLES TENDONITIS.
