Professional Foot Care Services
For The Whole Family
Welcome to the Hayles Foot & Ankle Clinic
The Hayles Foot and Ankle Clinic is committed to meeting the needs of the Ottawa community by providing excellence in foot care for the whole family.
With a quarter of all the body's bones in the feet, walking is the best exercise for your feet, the average person will walk around 128,000 kms in a life time. Walking also contributes to your general health by improving circulation, and weight control. Many do not realize the extraordinary force that is placed on their feet by carrying out typical day to day activities.
Some 75% of Canadians will experience foot health problems of varying degrees at some point in their lives. Women suffer about four times as many foot problems as men, with use of dress shoes partly to blame. Foot disorders may also contribute to pain in the lower back, knees, and hips.
Your feet can also reflect your general health, conditions such as Rheumatoid Arthritis and Diabetes Mellitus can show their initial signs and symptoms in the feet. So foot disorders can be your first sign of more serious medical problems.Professional foot care not only ensures healthy feet, but also overall health. With 40 years of combined Chiropody, the partners of The Hayles Foot and Ankle Clinic are guided by a 'patient centered' approach to help ensure that your feet keep you and your life moving step by step. We aim to provide a 'cure-oriented' course of therapy when ever possible, believing that this method results in the best foot care for you, and your family.
