PODIATRIST, DR. THANH DINH STATES, "MOST ADULTS DO FAR LESS WALKING AND STANDING FOR LONG PERIODS OF TIME, DESPITE WHAT THEY MIGHT THINK.  THERE IS POTENTIAL FOR REAL HARM, ESPECIALLY IN INDIVIDUALS WHO MAY HAVE EXISTING STRUCTURAL FOOT DEFORMITIES INCLUDING BUNIONS OR OTHER PROBLEMS SUCH AS DIABETES.  HENCE, IT IS ESPECIALLY IMPORTANT TO PREPARE FOR THE EVENT BY GRADUALLY INCREASING THE INTENSITY AND DURATION OF ACTIVITY.  BUT CONDITIONING PROGRAMS THAT HELP INDIVIDUALS PREPARE FOR A DISTANCE WALK ARE LIMITED - UNLIKE THE NUMEROUS TRAINING PROGRAMS AIMED AT NON-RUNNERS GET READY TO RUN EVEN SHORT DISTANCES - AND MOST WALKERS DON'T RECOGNIZE THAT THEY NEED TO PREPARE AT ALL.  ADULTS WHO ENGAGE IN THESE ACTITIES ALSO MUST BE EDUCATED TO KNOW WHEN TO TAKE A BREAK, AND NOT JUST 'WORK THROUGH THE PAIN', KNOWING THE SIGNS OF MINOR INJURY CAN HELP PREVENT A MAJOR INJURY."

AT OUR TORONTO FOOT CLINIC WE TREAT A LOT OF ATHLETES FROM ALL WALKS OF LIFE AND SKILL LEVEL, FROM WEEKEND WARRIORS TO PROFESSIONAL ATHLETES.  PREVENTION AND EARLY INTERVENTION IS THE KEY TO SUCCESS WITH SPORTS INJURIES.

IF YOU OR A LOVED ONE REQUIRES HONEST, COMPETENT FOOT CARE OR CUSTOM ORTHOTICS, PLEASE DO NOT HESITATE TO CONTACT US AT 416-465-8737.
