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 else 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.
Zavitz Chiropractic and Therapeutic Laser Clinic in Welland offers custom orthotics fitting (functional and accommodative) to help rebalance your feet, reduce your pain and discomfort by enhancing your body's natural movements.
What Are Prescription Orthotics?
Prescription orthotics look like insoles but are biochemical medical appliances that are custom made to correct your specific foot imbalance. Orthotics work on your 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.
Orthotics are a pleasure to wear, as they gently assist in reducing problems associated with pressure points, muscle strain and abnormal forces on the ankles, knees, hips and spine. Over time, custom orthotics will help to support your every movement, bringing you relief from fatigue and pain and allowing you to enjoy daily activities once again.
We supply all types of orthotics including sports, casual, dress and specialty models.
