Analysis & Custom Orthotics

* Each foot has three arches.
* Problems in the feet can lead to knee, hip and back conditions.
Custom foot orthotics are medical inserts for your shoes that correct
the way you stand, walk or run. Many people suffer pain that can be caused
by abnormal foot biomechanics. Your feet and the way you walk might be
the reason you are experiencing a variety of symptoms. The most common
reasons our health care professionals prescribe orthotics are for pain
in the heel/arch, low back, hip, knee, and forefoot. Other symptoms orthotics
are used for include diabetic feet, hip pain, Achilles pain, shin pain,
IT band syndrome and more. Pressure points, improper rotation of the foot,
painful muscle strain, abnormal forces on the legs, hips and spine are
eliminated because orthotics enable your feet to function properly.At Uptown Rehabilitation & Wellness Centre we perform an individualized
analysis of your feet, posture and gait. This provides us with an accurate
assessment of any biomechanical faults. Your feet are then casted in a
non-weight bearing subtalar neutral position to ensure the optimal accommodation
and control with each step.The orthotics are thin (1/8" thick) and lightweight. They fit easily
and comfortably into your existing footwear. Our orthotics provide superior
control, correction and performance enhancement for foot and gait abnormalities.
