Foot Care Services in Toronto and North York

Calculate those numbers over a lifetime, and it is a wonder everyone over 50 doesn’t have serious foot issues. This is a bit of a two-edged sword, because we are told that exercise is extremely important, and that walking is good form of exercise. While this is true, no healthcare professional would recommend exercising at the expense of the health of your feet.
