  • TORONTO CHIROPODIST, MARZ HARDY, D.Ch., B.Sc., PODIATRIC MEDICINE RECEIVES EXCELLENT RESULTS TREATING BUNIONS WITH CONSERVATIVE CARE

ACADEMY FOOT AND ORTHOTIC CLINICS PRIDES ITSELF BY PRACTICING CONSERVATIVE FOOT CARE WHENEVER POSSIBLE.  MANY TIMES SURGERY AND MEDICATIONS ARE UNNECESSARY AND CAN BE AVOIDED.  YOU HAVE TO ALWAYS REMEMBER THAT THERE IS NO DRUG OR SURGERY WHICH DOES NOT HAVE SIDE EFFECTS AND IN SOME CASES SERIOUS AND EVEN FATAL SIDE EFFECTS!

MANY PEOPLE CONSIDER BUNION SURGERY NOT BECAUSE THEY ARE IN PAIN BUT RATHER FOR THE COSMETIC APPEAL.  IT CAN BE A BIT UNSIGHTLY BUT IF YOU ARE PAIN FREE WE NEVER RECOMMEND A PATIENT TO UNDERGO SURGERY.  AS I STATED ALREADY THERE IS NO SURGERY WITHOUT SIDE EFFECTS OR COMPLICATIONS.  MANY TIMES WE HAVE HAD A PAIN FREE PATIENT ELECT TO UNDERGO SURGERY ONLY TO RESULT IN A FOOT THAT NOW LOOKS NORMAL LESS THE SURGICAL SCARS BUT NOW IS PAINFUL.  NEVER COMPROMISE FUNCTION FOR COSMETIC APPEARANCE.  AS SOON AS YOU LOSE MOBILITY IN YOUR FEET YOUR ENJOYMENT AND QUALITY OF LIFE CAN SUFFER SEVERELY.

IN OUR FOOT CLINIC IF A PERSON WITH BUNIONS IS PAIN FREE OR THE PATIENT IS EXPERIENCING MILD TO MODERATE DISCOMFORT WE FIRST SUGGEST CUSTOM ORTHOTICS TO PREVENT THE BUNION FROM PROGRESSING FURTHER AS WELL AS EDUCATING THEM ON CORRECT FOOTWEAR WITH A WIDE TOEBOX TO ACCOMMODATE THE WIDER FOREFOOT.  IF THEY ARE EXPERIENCING PAIN WE WOULD UNDERGO A REGIME OF PHYSICAL THERAPY USING INTERFERENTIAL THERAPY, ULTRASOUND AND LASER AS WELL AS INSTRUCT THE PATIENT IN HOME CARE WITH R.I.C.E. AND GIVE THEM STRETCHES AND EXERCISES.  ONLY AS THE VERY LAST RESORT DO WE RECOMMEND THEM FOR SURGERY.

IF YOU OR A LOVED ONE REQUIRE HONEST, COMPETENT ADVICE OR FOOT CARE, PLEASE DO NOT HESITATE TO CONTACT ACADEMY FOOT AND ORTHOTIC CLINICS AT 416-465-8737.
