At Advanced Pain Relief Clinic, we choose not to rely on drugs, surgery, and other "standard" methods of symptom resolution for our patients. Our multi-disciplinary team of physiotherapists, chiropractors, kinesiologists, massage therapists, nutritionists, and pedorthists work together to find the best and most advanced technologies and techniques to achieve whole-body wellness that goes beyond just "fixing" symptoms. Custom orthotics is just one of the example of the tools our pedorthists in Kitchener and Owen Sound utilize to help our patients regain their health and get back on their feet--pun intended!
What Are Custom Orthotics And How Do They Work?
Many of the chronic joint pain issues we see in our patients are either affected or even directly caused by problems with the alignment and function of the feet. Orthotics are special devices worn inside the shoes to help restore the foot's normal alignment. They also provide support to the muscles, tendons, ligaments, bones, and other important tissues that make up the foot's arch. This relieves pain and improves alignment not only in the feet, but also in other joints "upstream," including the knees, hips, pelvis, and spine.
At Advanced Pain Relief Clinic, we're proud to offer two on-site certified pedorthists as well as our own manufacturing lab, making it easy and efficient for us to create, deliver, and adjust custom orthotics--often all on the very same day. Our team is dedicated to keeping up with the latest research and technology, which is why we're proud to offer highly specialized footwear for deformities of the feet. In addition to custom foot and ankle orthotics, we also offer customized or off-the-shelf knee braces and other devices to support the musculoskeletal system and promote pain relief--without the side effects often seen with medications and surgical intervention.
Why Would My Foot Doctor in Kitchener Recommend Custom Orthotics?
Many acute and chronic health problems affecting the musculoskeletal system can be managed or resolved with an interdisciplinary approach to care, which may include the prescription of custom orthotics from a foot doctor. Such health problems may include:
Osteoarthritis of the spine, hips, knees, and ankles
Abnormalities of the arch (including fallen or high arches)
Orthotics are also useful for correcting gait patterns, which can be extremely important for runners or people who are on their feet a lot at work. When used in conjunction with other non-invasive, drug-free therapeutic techniques--including physiotherapy, chiropractic care, and nutritional guidance--orthotics can be extremely beneficial in the healing process.
