In addition to brand name footwear lines, Integrated Health Centre offers orthotic fittings using over-the-counter, semi-custom moldable, and fully custom made options. Orthotics can be helpful in achieving proper foot dynamics and can make a great difference in the movement of your joints as well as pain levels. Due to aging, as well as life events like pregnancy, injury, and hormone changes can cause the muscles in your feet can weaken, and just as glasses help your vision, orthotics can support your fallen arches. This can have a positive effect on your knees, hips, back etc.
Our chiropractors can assist you with custom orthotics (covered by many private health plans and as a medical expense on your income tax with a prescription). We have excellent success with our method of making orthotics because the orthotic is made as your foot "should be" and not as it currently is (fallen arches and all). In addition, Integrated Health Centre offers a FREE Gait Analysis which can aid in your decision about whether you need fully custom or off-the-shelf orthotics to correct your issues.
