When talking about one’s health, we should also include a discussion about the benefits of foot care, proper shoes and orthotics. Chiropractic adjustments for knees and feet, along with proper footwear and orthotics, are important for the treatment and the continued good health of our bodies.
Custom foot orthotics are classically used to treat common maladies of the foot. Their role is to prevent pain during walking and, more importantly, to prevent abnormal ranges of motion in the joints of the foot. When the foot is subjected to persistent abnormal patterns of gait, symptoms occur such as localized foot pain, bunions, plantar fasciitis, knee pain, hip or back pain and even neck pain.
In our office, we use state-of-the-art computer hardware and software to help us assess a patient’s footwear requirements. The Orthotic Group GaitScan™ system is a way for us to record the timing and pressure distribution of your normal walk and analyze the results to produce orthotics that can correct your specific foot problems.
Your custom orthotics are manufactured by The Orthotic Group in Markham, Ontario. The Orthotic Group is Canada’s largest orthotic laboratory, servicing not only Canada but also health professionals around the world. Our orthotics can be made to fit any lifestyle, including casual, dress and sport orthotics as well as prescription sandals, work boots and running shoes.
