Do you have frequent complaints of Foot and Ankle Pains? The Custom Orthotics experts in Calgary AB, at Caring Hands Physiotherapy will help you move freely once again. Depending on one’s lifestyle and occupation, the average individual spends 50 to 80% time on their feet. And if you are suffering from foot and ankle pain, your life can be greatly deterred.

The aim of our custom orthotics specialty service is to increase the efficiency of function in case of acute or long-term injury. This includes injury to soft-tissue and bone, as well as vicissitudes because of neurological changes.

What Does a Custom Foot Orthotic do?

We usually prescribe Orthotics therapy alongside physiotherapy techniques. This includes muscle strengthening and stretches, gait and balance retraining and reach and grasp strategies.
Benefits of Orthotics for Spine, Lower and Upper limbs rehabilitation include:

  • It is helpful after an injury to prevent further injury and reduce pain by supporting an injured limb.
  • Can prevent or correct deformity and reduce pain during weight bearing
  • Will improve efficiency of gait and balance
  • Provides improvement of base of support / lateral support
  • Can reduce the need for compensatory use of ipsilateral and contralateral limbs which can lead to secondary pain
  • May be used to facilitate training and improvement of skills
  • Can stabilize spinal fractures to allow the patient to return to some normal activities and protect the spinal cord.

Common Conditions Treated With Foot Orthotics

It is important to note that every patient’s situation is different. Not all cases of plantar fasciitis require an orthotic, but some will find it to be an enormous help. This is why we always start with a thorough biomechanical assessment. That being said, here are some conditions that may benefit from a foot orthotic:

  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Heel spurs
  • Metatarsalgia
  • Excessively pronated and supinated feet (flat or high arches)
  • Morton’s neuroma
  • Osteoarthritis or pain in the joints of the feet
  • Patellofemoral syndrome (runner’s knee)
  • Compensatory knee, hip and back pain
