DIABETES IS BECOMING A GROWING PROBLEM AMONG OUR POPULATION.  UNFORTUNATELY, MOST OF THE GENERAL POPULATION IS UNAWARE OF THE DIRE CONSEQUENCES OF DIABETES AS IT AFFECT MANY DIFFERENT AND VITAL AREAS OF THE BODY.

LAST YEAR IN ONTARIO, OVER 1700 PATIENTS HAD AMPUTATIONS OF THEIR FOOT DUE TO DIABETES AND IT ESTIMATED THAT 85% COULD HAVE BEEN PREVENTED IF THESE PATIENTS WERE RECEIVING PROFESSIONAL FOOT CARE FROM A CHIROPODIST.  IT COST THE ONTARIO HEALTH PLAN MORE THAN $70,000.00 FOR EACH AMPUTATION, BUT FORGETTING THE MONETARY COST, ONCE A PATIENT HAS LOST THEIR FOOT THEIR QUALITY OF LIFE IS DRASTICALLY REDUCED.  IT IS NEARLY LIKE HAVING ONE FOOT IN THE GRAVE.

AT ACADEMY FOOT AND ORTHOTIC CLINICS WE NOW HAVE 6 CHIROPODISTS / FOOT SPECIALISTS, 1 REGISTERED NURSE AND 8 SUPPORT STAFF ABLE TO PROVIDE HIGH QUALITY FOOT CARE AND CUSTOM ORTHOTICS FOR DIABETIC PATIENTS.  DIABETIC PATIENTS MAKE UP A LARGE PORTION OF OUR PRACTICE AND WE RECEIVE EXCELLENT RESULTS.  WE MAKE OUR PATIENTS BECOME ACTIVELY INVOLVED IN THEIR FOOT CARE BY DALY INSPECTION OF THEIR FEET, PROPER FOOT WEAR, AND BY WEARING CUSTOM ORTHOTICS TO ENSURE THAT THERE ARE NO PRESSURE POINTS THAT MAY CONTRIBUTE TO CORNS, CALLUSES OR BLISTERS.

IF YOU OR A LOVED ONE WOULD LIKE TO RECEIVE HONEST, COMPETENT HIGH QUALITY FOOT CARE FROM A DEDICATED HEALTH CARE TEAM OF PROFESSIONALS, THEN LOOK NO FURTHER THAN OUR TORONTO ONT. FOOT CLINIC, ACADEMY FOOT AND ORTHOTIC CLINICS TO PROVIDE EACH AND EVERY PATIENTS WITH THE BEST POSSIBLE FOOT CARE.
