Feet First Clinic’s mission is to increase awareness of foot problems and provide the highest level of comprehensive foot care in Toronto, in the most convenient ways possible so that every person can put his or her best foot forward. We specialize in the prevention, treatment, and management of acute and chronic disorders that affect foot and lower limb function and your ability to live a full and active life
We do this by positioning the clinic as a one stop shop for all foot care needs. Feet First – Foot care…great for your feet…good for the sole! We believe in providing quality, caring services that support a healthy, active lifestyle. Our five chiropodists specialize in prevention and management of acute and chronic foot disorders that affect foot and lower limb function.
Our feet are the body’s support system and yet most people do not take care of them. Up to one in three people have foot problems, which when left untreated can lead to serious conditions including arthritis, infection, chronic pain, joint damage, and even amputation. If you suffer from corns, calluses, warts, nail and skin disorders, diabetes, or foot, ankle, knee or back pain…a visit to Feet First Clinic for an assessment is your first step.
The majority of foot problems are the result of ill-fitting footwear, so getting people in proper shoes is a pillar of our practice. We prevent and treat foot problems with a combination of state-of-the-art bio mechanical analysis, custom fit top of the line orthopaedic sneakers and shoes, custom orthotics and compression hosiery and socks to improve vascular circulation.
With over 250 ligaments, muscles and tendons…over 120 bones and joints, more than 250,000 glands and nerves…that support 1,000 pounds of force per day…Feet First Clinic wants to make a difference in their customer’s overall health by allowing them to put their bet foot forward.
