What Do My Feet Have To Do With It?
Your feet have a direct impact on the rest of your body. Like the foundation of a house, your feet support the weight of everything above them. When a small problem develops in your feet, a subtle change in the way you walk will cause a chain reaction of adjustments in your posture and walking mechanics. These changes can put stress on joints higher up in your body and can lead to more serious problems.
Orthotics help rebalance your feet, reducing pain and discomfort by enhancing your body’s natural movements.
What Are Prescription Orthotics?
Prescription orthotics look like insoles, but are biomechanical medical appliances that are customer made to correct your specific foot imbalance. Orthotics work on feet much like glasses work on your eyes – they reduce stress and strain on your body by bringing your feet back into proper alignment. Orthotics fit into your shoes as comfortably as an insole; and have the advantage of being made from precise imprints of your feet.
How Do They Help?
Properly made orthotics are custom moulded to the support requirements of your feet. They help restore the normal balance and alignment of your body by gently correcting foot abnormalities.
How are they made?
At Parallel, we use state of the art technology to take a 3D laser image of your foot. That image is taken using special custom software to maintain the highest degree of precision and accuracy and is sent to the Orthogenic Laboratories for production. 3D laser imaging works to ensure your orthotic is exactly what your feet need.
How Do I Know If I Have A Problem?
The symptoms of poor foot mechanics can include any one of the following:
1 – Localized foot pain
2 – Bunions, hammer toes
3 – Arch/heel pain
4 – Leg/knee pain
5 – Hip, neck or back pain
By combining your orthotics with the other services we offer at Parallel Chiropractic & Wellness Centre such as Chiropractic, Massage, Acupuncture or Naturopathy, we can offer you a one-stop-healing-shop to help you feel your best as quickly as possible!
