The key to better health for your body could be right under your feet.
Your feet have a direct impact on the rest of your body. Like the foundation of a house, your feet support the weight of everything above them. When a small problem develops in your feet, the subtle changes in the way you walk will cause a chain reaction of adjustments in your posture and walking mechanics.
These changes can put stress on joints higher up in your body and lead to more serious problems such as:
- Foot pain
- Knee pain
- Hip pain
- Back pain
The Orthotic Groups custom orthotics help rebalance your feet reducing pain and discomfort by enhancing your body s natural movements.
Dr. Bordeleau and Dr. Vandervoort have been certified in Advanced Foot biomechanics and Orthotic Therapy. Should the results of a detailed foot and gaitscan assessment demonstrate that you could benefit from a custom orthotic they will take the appropriate computer measurements and foot impressions. The Orthotic Group will make the right orthotic for your foot and preferred footware. In less than 10 business days you will have your custom orthotics, shoes or sandals and enjoy the benefits of better support and foot alignment. Satisfaction is guaranteed and should slight adjustments to the orthotics be needed there is no extra charge.
Prescription orthotics resembles insoles but are biomechanical appliances that are custom made to correct your specific foot imbalance. Orthotics reduce stress and strain on your body by bringing your feet back into proper alignment. Orthotics fit into your shoes as comfortably as an insole but have the advantage of having been made from precise imprints of your feet.
Orthotics may help prevent and treat localized foot pain, bunions, hammer toes, arch or heel pain, leg or knee pain and hip or back pain.
We also have available The Orthotic Group Gaitscan. The Gaitscan is a state of the art computer hardware and software that helps in the assessment and analysis of your feet. This system records your timing sequence during gait as you walk or run across the pressure plate which has thousands of tiny sensors. The computer displays 2D and 3D visual representations of the pressure under your foot and prints a report which helps us in the assessment of your feet and biomechanics.
We offer a variety of orthotics to fit your lifestyle from casual to specific sport orthotics.
