Why Orthotics Matter
Your entire skeletal
health begins at the feet. Bad posture can lead to decreased
mobility and spinal problems over time. How you stand affects
all of this, and most people aren't aware that they're standing
and walking in a way that could lead to problems down the road.
Existing problems that are
also treated with Orthotic inserts include Arthritis and
Most people think about
orthotics, and think about their grandmother, but you'd be
surprised to find that inserts can be made for work, play,
sports, and even fashion. Yes, even high heels can help you.
Orthotics shape your foot
back to its natural intended shape and reverses possible damage,
which in turn gets you walking better, and your posture and
skeletal alignment can improve. Properly made orthotics can provide an artificial base of
support to allow the entire body to function properly.
How Hespeler Physiotherapy
can help you is that our Orthotic professionals use a
computer-generated composite of your walking pattern or take 3D
impressions of your feet and prescribe orthotics that can help
you get back on track.
Our custom-made foot orthotics are manufactured at the Footmaxx
Orthotic Laboratory from the digital scan data information
collected when a patient walks across the Footmaxx electronic
force plate. Our Footmaxx Metascan software uses the scanned
data to determine the custom orthotic module's three dimensional
shape, size and postings. This information is also used to
produce a detailed Gait and Pressure Analysis Report. Our
orthotics are prescribed by licensed professionals including
Podiatrist, Chiropodists and C-Ped certified professionals.
Walking and other
exercise is the best thing you can do for your body. Make the
most of it with orthopedic insoles.
In most cases, orthotics
are covered by insurance plans. Let us check for you.
