Custom Orthotics for Heel Pain
Heel pain can occur due to aging, poor foot mechanics, excess weight, low activity levels, or improper footwear. If you’re suffering from mild or severe heel pain, we can help recommend a custom-made foot orthotic that is perfectly designed for you. With the right orthotic, you can begin the healing process and prevent a range of recurrent problems. Heel pain can occur due to poor foot posture or excess ankle motion when walking. We will take time to assess your heel movements when walking, standing, and running in order to better understand the issue at hand.
Symptoms like pain and swelling at the arch or bottom of the heel could signify a condition known as plantar fasciitis that is caused by inflammation and irritation of the fibrous tissue that extends from the heel to the toes. The pain can get worse with the first few steps you take when you wake up in the morning or after sitting for long periods. Heel pain can also occur due to some sort of trauma. Our custom orthotics can help address issues like tenderness at the back of the heel, swelling, or pain on the ankle when standing on toes.
Custom Orthotics for Forefoot Pain
A foot is made up of metatarsal bones which are five in number and run from the arch of the foot to the toe joints. Pain, burning, or discomfort on these metatarsal bones can disrupt your day to day mobility. Our custom orthotics can be prescribed to help address these symptoms. Forefoot pain can be caused by intense activities, foot trauma, certain foot types like high arches as well as excessive weight. Individuals with arthritis and foot deformities are also more likely to suffer from forefoot pain.
Some of the most common forefoot conditions that we’ve treated include bunions, hallux valgus deformity (when the big toe shifts towards the smaller toes), and metatarsal stress fractures. Some foot conditions occur due to lack of blood supply and custom orthotics can help fix this issue. If you are experiencing forefoot pain, speak to us today. We can guide you on proper shoe selection as well as custom orthotics to alleviate pain, soreness, and discomfort.
Custom Orthotics for Diabetes
Diabetes can affect the feet and lower limbs. It is a chronic condition that limits blood flow to the limbs and feet. Due to poor blood flow, diabetics can suffer serious complications from minor injuries like cuts and blisters because their bodies don’t heal as fast. Orthotics can be used to help manage the symptoms of diabetes in your feet. With proper advice given by our foot specialist, you can prevent foot complications caused by diabetes.
These specialized devices will help in correction and control of the high pressure, friction, or shear on different areas of your foot. The custom orthotics will be manufactured specifically for you using a cast of your foot. All orthotics are designed using high-quality materials. We match the orthotics to your specific needs and comfort. We consider factors such as your activity level, occupation, and footwear when designing your orthotics. Speak to us today if you’re suffering from foot complications as a result of diabetes.
Custom Orthotics for Knee Pain
Knee pain can occur due to sudden trauma or an underlying condition like arthritis. If you’re suffering from knee pain, we will perform thorough examinations to understand the underlying cause and offer the right treatment. Our custom orthotics can also be used for people with mild and severe knee pain. We can design soft and accommodative orthotics for you to help alleviate knee pain.
Our chiropractors will recommend a combination of different techniques to help reduce inflammation around the knee joint and restore the knee’s range of motion. If there are alignment issues in other areas of your body which are contributing to the knee pain, our chiropractor can use techniques like compression, strengthening exercises, elevation, and custom orthotics. Our goal is to help you restore balanced function not only on the knees but in the entire body. We don’t just help you reduce pain and inflammation in the irritated tissues, we also offer a combination of chiropractic care and orthotics to restore your overall wellbeing.
Custom Orthotics for Back Pain
One of the most common complaints for adults from all walks of life is back pain. Back pain can be experienced by people who sit at their office desk all day, those who stand for long hours as well as those who are involved in more physical labour. The back is made up of intervertebral discs, vertebrae, ligaments, and muscles. All parts of the body are somewhat connected to the back. This means that any imbalance on a different part of your body can cause serious back pain.
Orthotics can be used as a holistic approach to prevent and alleviate back pain. Orthotic shoes and shoe inserts can be used to address imperfections in foot structure and restore alignment on the spine. Structural concerns on your foot can cause problems on your back and this is where custom orthotics can come in. Since your feet serve as a foundation for the rest of the body, any imperfections in this area will have a negative toll on areas such as your back. We can use orthotics to help reduce these kinds of symptoms and restore a more efficient and coordinated motion.
