Put Your Best Foot Forward
Do you suffer from:
If your answer is yes to any of the above complaints, you will benefit from orthotics.
What are orthotics?
Orthotics are specialized insoles that are manufactured from a three dimensional model of the foot. A custom orthotic can accommodate bony deformities, muscle imbalances and modify movement patterns of the foot and lower limb. They help relieve pain in your feet, ankles, legs, knees and lower back. Orthotics are designed to fit comfortably inside your shoes and boots and are specific to your individual needs.
How do orthotics work?
Your feet rest on top of the orthotics. The orthotic gently directs your feet into the correct position for standing, walking and running. By maintaining a correct foot position you orthotics will relieve fatigue and pain. Custom-made insoles primarily serve to correct the altered positional relationship between the leg, the hindfoot and the forefoot.
How are orthotics made?
Initially, you are examined to determine your particular foot posture. Then the computerized Metascan system is used to provide a dynamic means of analyzing the way you stand, walk or run. This diagnostic tool helps assist your clinician in determining your foot function. Technicians then make your orthotics. Your custom made orthotics will be fitted for comfort to your feet.
How long are orthotics worn?
Orthotics will correct your abnormal foot posture as long as you continue to wear them. You will need to wear your orthotics as long as you want to avoid discomfort. Your feet are the foundation of your body. Look after them.
