Like the foundation of a house, your feet support the weight of everything above them. A small problem in your feet can lead to a chain reaction in your walking mechanics and posture. These changes can put stress on joints higher up in your body, and lead to more serious problems.
Prescription orthotics are biomechanical appliances that are custom made to correct your specific foot imbalance. They reduce stress and strain on your body by bringing your feet back into proper alignment.
Orthotics help restore the normal balance and alignment of your body by gently correcting foot abnormalities.
- 25% of the bones in your body are in the feet.
- The average person takes 10,000 steps per day.
- The average person will walk over 184,000 km in their lifetime, or more than 4 trips around the world.
- More than 75% of people will experience foot problems in their lifetime.
If you have pain in your feet, ankles, knees, or lower back, contact us for a gait and pressure analysis test.
The Orthotic Group designs innovative, comfortable orthotics that are a pleasure to wear as they gently reduce problems associated with pressure points, muscle strain and abnormal forces on the ankles, knees, hips and spine.
Over time, custom orthotics bring you relief from fatigue and pain, allowing you to enjoy daily activities comfortably.
A computerized gait and pressure test measures the weight distribution along the bottom of your foot while you are walking. Digital information and our chiropractor’s clinical exam can then be used to make prescription orthotics, to correct many abnormal foot functions.
