Find Treatment and Pain Alleviation for Flat Feet, Malalignment Syndrome and Other Foot Problems
Effective treatment of a foot problem sometimes requires the use of biomechanical devices, known as custom orthotics. These are highly specialized, custom-made three-dimensional foot inserts that enable the joints and bones of the foot to be in a more stable position for standing and while in motion. Custom orthotics help relieve symptoms of common injuries such as plantar fasciitis, metatarsalgia, neuromas and other foot and ankle tendon injuries.
Custom orthotics control each phase of the walking cycle – right from the moment your heel contacts the ground to when your toes push off the surface. For custom orthotics in Calgary, get in touch with North Hill Foot & Ankle Clinic.
Before designing custom orthotics we take the accurate measurement of your foot using a three-dimensional laser scan. These precise measurements help in giving the custom orthotics the right cushioning and foot alignment to help reduce the stress and strain on the body. Another important feature of custom orthotics is that it helps position your foot so you use the right muscles at the right time more efficiently. You can also have custom orthotics designed to suit a specific type of footwear.
While it may take a while to get used to feeling comfortable in your custom orthotics, make sure to use them on a long-term basis to get the most out of it. For any concerns or modifications related to your custom orthotics, please connect with us today and give us a call.
