SUPPORT FROM THE GROUND UP
Your feet have a direct impact on the rest of your body. Like the foundation of a house, your feet support the weight of everything above them. When a small problem develops in your feet, a subtle change in the way you walk will cause a chain reaction of adjustments in your posture and walking mechanics. These changes can put stress on joints higher up in your body, and lead to more serious problems.
At Advanced Chiropractic + Wellness Centre the Orthotic Labratory we utilize is The Orthotic Group. The Orthotic's Group (TOG) custom orthotics help rebalance your feet, reducing pain and discomfort by enhancing your body's natural movements. Properly made orthotics are custom molded to the support requirements of your feet. They help restore the normal balance and alignment of your body by gently correcting foot abnormalities.
Over time, custom orthotics support what is prescribed by your health care practitioner and bring you relief from fatigue and pain, allowing you to enjoy daily activities comfortably.
What are Prescription Orthotics?
Prescription orthotics look like insoles, but are biomechanical medical appliances that are custom made to correct your specific foot imbalance. They work on your feet much like glasses work on your eyes - they reduce stress and strain on your body by bringing your feet back into proper alignment. Orthotics will fit into your shoe as comfortably as an insole.
How Do I Know If I Need Orthotics?
The symptoms of poor foot mechanics can include any one of the following:
1. Localized foot pain
2. Bunions, hammer toes
3. Arch/heel pain
4. Leg/knee pain
5. Hip or back pain - even neck pain
