It’s about to get spooky in downtown Collingwood, ON. Black Harvest is here once again with games, a costume contest, and trick-or-treating, of course! Don’t forget to put your “Zombie Face On” and attend the Zombie Walk—kids and kids at heart will enjoy this ghastly stroll as they listen to the ghost stories of our own city. If foot pain has kept you at home in the past, there’s time to get to Abbott Foot & Ankle Clinic before the October 30, 2013 event. Don’t be scared off by the discomfort that haunts your every step. Conservative treatments such as a change in footwear and custom orthotics will often resolve many common foot conditions.
You don’t have to be among the walking dead to experience biomechanical issues with your feet. Arch type and a variety of other factors, many of them hereditary, combine to determine how weight is distributed across your feet. If this distribution is unbalanced, you may notice pain in your feet, ankles, knees, hips, and even your lower back!
Custom orthotics are molded to the shape of your feet, and they can correct these types of issues. Don’t be tricked into thinking that a one-size-fits-all, drugstore insert will work—in fact, the condition of your feet may worsen by wearing the wrong type of device. Instead, treat your foundation to a solution that is as unique as you are, and get back on your feet in time to participate in all of your favorite fall activities.
Chiropodist Tony Abbott understands the importance of maintaining a high quality of life, which includes healthy feet. Proper orthotic care can mean the difference between chronic foot discomfort and pain-free movement.
