What are Custom Orthotics? And, why should you consider getting them?
Our feet are the base of support for our entire body, therefore, it is very important to ensure proper motion and stability. A Custom Orthotic is a specifically designed insole that is used to align the foot and ankle into the most anatomically efficient position, meaning it will ensure proper motion and provide proper support for your foot and ankle.
Custom Orthotics can help relieve symptoms of poor foot mechanics such as localized foot pain, bunions and hammer toes, arch/heel pain, leg/knee pain, and hip, back, or even neck pain.
Custom Orthotics bring your feet back into proper alignment, reducing the stress and strain on your body.
Since Customs Orthotics are made specifically for you, they can reduce specific motions that take place during the gait cycle by re-aligning and redirecting the foot.
Custom Orthotics can fit into your favourite pair of shoes as comfortably as an insole. Any shoe that has a removable insole will work with your Custom Orthotics.
Your Chiropractor did an assessment and recommended that Custom Orthotics would be a good idea for you.
Custom Orthotics is covered under your Extended Health Benefits. (Ask us what to check for to see if you’re covered!)
Custom Orthotics help position your foot so you will be using the right muscles at the right time, minimizing fatigue and allowing your muscles to be used more efficiently
Wearing Custom Orthotics can provide many health benefits, such as improved posture, better balance, increased comfort, and reduced pain. If you feel like your feet could be part of your symptoms, you can discuss this with your healthcare practitioner. (This includes your Chiropractor!) They can then assess and prescribe Custom Orthotics with insoles that are custom-made to help correct your specific foot and body imbalances, allowing you to put your best foot forward!

When Picking Up a Pen Gives You Back Pain
Does picking up a pen give you pain?
Of course, it isn’t that one instance of picking up a pain that does it. It is the cumulative effect of many hours, days and years of damage.
One injury or problem builds and builds so that simple everyday tasks can give you pain and symptoms. Poor mobility, nutrition, sleep, exercise, stress management and posture … can all lead to significant issues in our bodies.
