All of a sudden it’s May! It seems like we completely skipped any more of Spring and we’re right into summer months. The weather reports are predicting near 30°C by the end of the week!
So firstly May the 4th be with you, to all the Star Wars fans out there! May is also the month we celebrate our mothers. This Sunday May 10th, families from all over will be heading out to restaurants and having barbeques. The restaurants, patios and backyards will be very busy! Make your reservations where you can and hope for the best! Mom deserves it and we want to show our appreciation, don’t we? While you are at it, make sure that her feet are well taken care of. Feet are literally the furthest thing from our minds and as such, they get neglected. Perhaps mom, herself has forgotten to take care of her feet. Perhaps she’s ignored the pain and just limped through the discomfort from her chronic pain. Why not book an appointment with a chiropodist at Comfort Stride Foot Clinic? We have Scarborough, Bradford, Kitchener, Mississauga and even North York locations to serve you. Call our central line at 647-989-7794 or better yet, visit us our website to see what we are all about. We will treat your mom like our mom.
May is so full of events! May is also International Foot Health Awareness Month! In the spirit of not thinking about our feet too much, foot health awareness is important. We need to bring attention to foot related issues like complications from diabetes or common ailments like heel pain or arch pain! So many of us get used to pain and consider it just an ache. We think that being on our feet all day long means we are supposed to have sore feet. We don’t realize that sore feet at any time is an abnormal situation and there are steps we can take to improve this!
So, in order to bring more awareness to our foot related problems, Comfort Stride will be once again collecting socks for the Blue Door Shelters of Bradford West Gwillimbury as well as the Second Base Youth Shelters of Scarborough. These are two valuable organizations to the people who need the care they give and the donations they receive from the public and private sectors. If my patients as well as anyone else would like to bring in socks (new and only slightly used but washed) socks to our clinic, we would be happy to pass on the generous donations to our the respective charities. Cash donations are also accepted as we can purchase socks for these organizations as well. All donators will receive a free pedometer endorsed by the Canadian Federation of Podiatric Medicine.
Finally, I would like to announce our gift card draw is in full swing. Every month, we randomnly select a client of ours who has referred their friend or family member. The winner will receive a $100 gift card. Currenltly, we have Petro Canada gift certificates. We all need fuel and our cars are no different. Gas isn’t getting any cheaper so let Comfort Stride pay for a few tanks of gas!
Thanks for all the support from my family, friends and clients. I am always striving to improve things for my patients.
