A chiropodist will manage both chronic and acute conditions affecting foot and lower limb function. They treat and alleviate day-to-day foot problems such as, corns, calluses, warts, ingrown toe nails, flat feet, sports injuries, and perform diabetic foot care. They are also able to assess the biomechanics of the feet and lower limbs to prescribe and fit patients with custom foot orthotics.
Foot Orthotics are custom-made shoe inserts that are medically proven to eliminate pain and discomfort. Orthotics are designed to control foot function by treating imbalances and modifying areas of weight-bearing on the foot. Many foot problems can be effectively treated with orthotics.
A custom foot orthotic device helps in correcting the alignment of the foot and the posture of the lower extremity. For a strong, stable and supportive base it is very important that our registered Chiropodist conduct a biomechanical assessment to prescribe the best orthotic for your foot.
The custom foot orthotic cast is not just a piece of plastic. This device is a flexible shell material based on your weight, activity and your foot line. This will provide you strength, stability and control over the motion. The custom foot orthotics therapy is a very important aspect to normalize the pressure on the foot and prevent future foot problems.
At Total Rehab Centre we realize that every foot that we see is completely different. However, with our assessment methodology, our specialized technology, and our years of experience, we can help almost everyone reach their optimal foot health goals!
