Our Brampton health clinic offers custom orthotics to assist with a variety of conditions.
What Are Orthotics?
Orthotics are custom-fitted insoles for your shoes made from precise imprints of your feet.
They are custom-made to correct foot imbalance, reduce the stress and strain caused by prolonged standing, walking, or running, and assist in bringing your feet back into pain-free, functional alignment.
How Do They Help?
They are designed to gently restore the normal mechanics of your feet, thereby helping to reduce improper vibrations from the ground onto the musculoskeletal system.
Orthotics act to reduce problems associated with muscle strains, painful pressure points, and abnormal forces on the ankles, knees, hips, and spine.
Chiropractors are specialized in foot and spinal biomechanics. With a custom orthotic prescription, your chiropractor can help to support your body’s structural foundation and bring you relief from pain and fatigue so you can continue with your normal daily activities.
Why Do I Need Orthotics?
Foot pain is the most common symptom for the assessment and prescription of orthotic insoles.
Most people believe that foot pain is a natural body response to extensive hours of standing or walking; however, this is not true and foot pain should not be ignored.
Over time, mild foot discomfort or pain can lead to chronic pain associated with dysfunction of the alignment of the small bones in your feet. Imbalances affect the feet, ankles, knees, hips, back, and neck.
With custom-fitted orthotics, pain and dysfunction can be effectively controlled and corrected.
Medical conditions that can benefit from custom orthotics:
- Metatarsalgia (pain in the ball of the foot)
- Plantar Fasciitis (“jogger’s heel”)
- Pes Planus (flat
- Pes Cavus (high arched feet)
- Bunions or Hammer toes
- Achilles Tendonitis
- Impact heel pain or ankle pain
- Leg and/or knee pain
- Hip and/or back pain
