WHILE  I  WAS ATTENDING PROFESSIONAL SCHOOL, ORTHOTICS WERE JUST BEGINNING TO BECOME POPULAR FOR TREATING MANY POSTURAL DEFICIENCIES IN THE BODY.  WHILE I WAS IN MY SECOND YEAR OF PRACTICE I DECIDED TO ATTEND THE TORONTO SKI SHOW AND PROMOTE CUSTOM ORTHOTICS.  IT WAS EXTREMELY SUCCESSFUL AND BY THE END OF 3 DAYS I HAD OVER 500 PEOPLE THAT DECIDED TO INVEST IN CUSTOM ORTHOTICS WHICH COULD BE USED IN THEIR SKI BOOTS AND ALSO BE USED IN THEIR DAY TO DAY SHOES.  I ATTENDED THIS SHOW FOR MANY YEARS AS WELL AS THE GOLF SHOW, HOME SHOW, ETC. 

MOST PEOPLE ARE BORN WITH A GENETIC DEFICIENCY KNOWN AS OVERPRONATION.  THIS IS A CONDITION WHERE THE LONGITUDINAL ARCH OF THE FOOT HAS COLLAPSED WHICH CAUSES MEDIAL ROTATION OF THE LOWER LIMB AND ALTERED BIOMECHANICS OF THE ENTIRE BODY INCLUDING THE SPINE.  ONE OF THE THINGS THAT MY FOOT SPECIALISTS THAT I EMPLOY ARE CONSTANTLY REMINDED OF IS TO  THINK ABOVE THE FOOT AND THE BODY AS A WHOLE.  THE STRUCTURE AND MECHANICS OF THE FOOT AFFECT THE ENTIRE BODY IN SO MANY WAYS IT IS HARD TO IMAGINE.

WHEN YOU PLACE YOUR FOOT IN A SKI BOOT OR SKATE IN WHICH YOUR FOOT IS TIGHTLY ENCLOSED, IF YOU DO NOT HAVE A FOUNDATION TO SUPPORT A COLLAPSED ARCH THE FOOT WILL ROTATE MEDIALLY EVEN MORE INCREASING THE STRUCTURAL FAULT.  IN ORDER TO TRANSFER THE POWER FROM THE SKATE OR SKI BOOT IS IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT THAT THE ARCH BE SUPPORTED IN THE NEUTRAL NON-WEIGHT BEARING POSITION IN ORDER TO ACHIEVE MAXIMUM PERFORMANCE.

ALL PROFESSIONAL SKIERS AND HOCKEY PLAYERS WEAR CUSTOM MADE ORTHOTICS.  WHY?  BECAUSE THEY WORK!

IF YOU WEAR CUSTOM ORTHOTICS WHEN YOU SKI YOU WILL NOT IMPROVE YOUR PERFORMANCE BUT ASLO COMFORT WILL BE INCREASED AS WELL AS FATIGUE WILL BE DECREASED.

PLEASE CONSULT MY FOOT CLINIC AT 416-465-8737 FOR PROFESSIONAL FOOT CARE AND ORTHOTICS.  MY TEAM OF DEDICATED FOOT SPECIALISTS ARE ALWAYS READY TO GO THE EXTRA MILE TO MAKE SURE THAT EVERY PATIENT IS A SATISFIED PATIENT.
