Don’t Live with Foot Pain

Published On: June 22, 2022

What are the specifics causing your foot pain?

Foot pain is such a general term that it doesn’t help you with treatment options.

  • Plantar Fasciitis: a deep pain where your arch and heel meet. This is an inflammation of the fascia that covers the muscles and tendons in your foot. The pain is worse in the morning when getting out of bed due to the overnight tightening of the muscle. Did you know that one of the primary causes of plantar fasciitis is excessive pronation? A functional, custom orthotic is a great solution for 95% of cases.

  • Heel Spur: a pain in the bottom of the heel. This is caused by calcium deposits that can cause you to put pressure on other parts of the foot. 

  • Achilles Tendinitis: pain in the back of your heel. There is a higher risk of pain when the tendon is inflamed, similar to plantar fasciitis and heel spurs.

What can we do for you?

Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy

This treatment, also known as Shockwave, is a clinically proven, non-invasive, fast and effective treatment for foot pain. Pressure waves, when applied to injured tissues, stimulate metabolic reactions of:

  • Reduction of pain felt by nerve fibres
  • Increase of blood circulation in surrounding soft tissues
  • Beginning the healing process triggered by stem cells activation

Custom-made Prescription Orthotics

Orthotics are designed to treat the root of the problem: your biomechanics. While you may believe your gait is normal and healthy, small changes can cause more significant issues. Your chiropodist will design a custom pair of orthotics based on your specific biomechanics. The design is sent to our lab, and the orthotic is created with a custom mould we take of your feet.
