How Do Orthopedic Shoes Relieve My Pain?
Answering this question requires a basic understanding of foot orthoses. Orthopedic shoes are specifically designed to absorb shock and clean up problematic movement patterns. In doing so, orthopedics can correct deformities, improve the function of the foot, and relieve pain experienced in the foot, ankle, leg, knee, thigh, and hip. Orthopedic shoes may also help relieve upper body and neck pain caused by muscle imbalances and compensation, especially those caused by abnormal pronation.
Pronation is a formal term for a natural foot motion that helps the body absorb shock and adapt to dynamic terrain. This foot motion involves the arch coming down and the foot splaying outward as it comes into contact with the ground. Abnormal pronation occurs when the foot pronates excessively or at the improper time. Termed “over-pronation,” this tendency can cause foot problems like tendonitis and arthritis, as well as being associated with knee and back pain.
Detect Abnormal Pronation With a Free Assessment
The Bovaird team uses a comprehensive foot assessment protocol to detect overpronation in patients. A chiropodists trained and regulated by the College of Ontario will determine your unique foot type, then conduct a full gait assessment. This biomechanical analysis allows us to pinpoint the source of your pain and discomfort, then custom-build an orthotic solution for your individual issue.
Wide Selection of Comfort, Brand Name Orthopedic Shoes
Many bodily ailments, particularly musculoskeletal ones, stem from improper footwear and foot care. Orthopedic shoes are those specifically designed to ensure proper foot health, shape, and mobility. They are critical for preventing and relieving a host of foot problems including corns and calluses, blisters, heel spurs, plantar fasciitis, flat foot, ankle, heel, and joint pain, as well as symptoms of diabetes, sports injuries and accidents.
At Bovaird Health Clinic, we offer brand name, high quality orthopedic shoes proven to relieve distress and facilitate proper foot health.
There are two kinds of orthotics that we can prescribe. Though they look and feel different, both options are designed to alleviate foot and lower-body pain, and are almost always prescribed as a pair to promote the best foot function.
Supports for our orthopedic shoes are fabricated using a three-dimensional model of your foot. This model is generated either by taking a plaster mold of your foot, having you step into a box of compressible foam, or scanning your foot with our optical scanners.
