  • YOU SAY OUTSIDE THE BOX! DR. HARDY, OWNER OF ACADEMY FOOT AND ORTHOTIC CLINICS SAYS ABOVE THE FOOT!

ALTHOUGH  I,  DR. HARDY, OWNER OF TORONTO FOOT CLINIC, ACADEMY FOOT AND ORTHOTIC CLINICS DOES THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX,  IF NOT, YOU WILL NEVER BECOME ULTRA SUCCESSFUL. DR. HARDY HAS TRAINED ALL OF THE FOOT SPECIALISTS THAT HE EMPLOYS TO NOT ONLY THINK OUTSIDE OF THE BOX, BUT ALSO TO THINK ABOVE THE FOOT!  MANY HEALTH SPECIALISTS GET PIGEONED-HOLED IN THEIR PARTICULAR SPECIALTY AND SOMETIMES FORGET TO CONSIDER THE BODY AS A WHOLE.

WITH OVER 30 YEARS PRACTICING AS A CHIROPRACTOR MADE ME RESPECT THE BODY AS A WHOLE.  EVERY PART OF YOUR BODY IS INTERCONNECTED AND ONE USUALLY DOES NOT FUNCTION WITHOUT THE REST.  AS WE SPECIALIZE IN THE FEET IT IS VERY IMPORTANT TO CONSIDER HOW STRUCTURAL, POSTURAL AND BIOMECHANICS PROBLEMS CAN EFFECT THE REST OF THE BODY.  

MOST PEOPLE ARE BORN WITH A GENETIC DEFICIENCY KNOWN AS OVERPRONATION WHERE THE LONGITUDINAL ARCH OF THE FOOT HAS COLLAPSED.  WHEN THIS OCCURS, NOT ONLY DOES IT AFFECT THE FUNCTION AND STRUCTURE OF THE FOOT, BUT ALSO EVERY JOINT ABOVE THE FOOT INCLUDING THE ANKLE, KNEE, HIP, PELVIS, AND SPINE.  WHEN THE ARCH OF THE FOOT IS COLLAPSED, THE LOWER LEG MEDIALLY ROTATES WHICH ALTERS THE STRUCTURE AND FUNCTION OF THE ENTIRE BODY.  

VERY EARLY IN MY CAREER I LEARNED THE VALUE OF CUSTOM ORTHOTICS AND THE NEED FOR NORMALIZING POSTURE AND STRUCTURE OF THE FOOT.  WITHOUT A CORRECT AND PROPER FOUNDATION THE REST OF THE BODY'S STRUCTURE IS COMPROMISED WHICH CAN RESULT IN LOSS OF FUNCTION. SO MANY TIMES AFTER I PRESCRIBED CUSTOM ORTHOTICS A PATIENT'S SPINAL OR KNEE PAIN WOULD CLEAR.

CUSTOM ORTHOTICS ARE A VERY IMPORTANT CONSIDERATION WHEN DEALING WITH CHILDREN.  

"REMEMBER AS THE TWIG IS BENT, SO GROWS THE TREE." 

FOR NORMAL GROWTH AND DEVELOPMENT OF THE JOINTS, IT IS IMPORTANT THAT THE FEET BE PROPERLY ALIGNED.  THE WORST THING THAT CAN HAPPEN FROM WEARING CUSTOM ORTHOTICS IS THAT THEY CAN HELP YOU.  I NEVER LEAVE HOME WITHOUT THEM.

IF YOU OR A LOVED ONE REQUIRES COMPETENT, HONEST ADVICE OR QUALITY FOOT CARE FROM FOOT SPECIALISTS WHO LOVE THEIR PROFESSION AND ARE DEDICATED TO THEIR PATIENTS, PLEASE DO HESITATE TO CONTACT DR. HARDY, OWNER OF ACADEMY FOOT AND ORTHOTIC CLINICS AT 416-465-8737.  REMEMBER, WE ALWAYS TREAT OUR PATIENTS LIKE FAMILY.
