Chiropody & Orthotics
Chiropody is a branch of medicine that focuses on the assessment and treatment of foot-related ailments.
Custom orthotics are prescription medical devices that are worn inside shoes to correct biomechanical foot issues, which can assist in resolving foot-related pain and conditions. An abnormality in the feet can not only damage the feet, but affect the ankles, knees, hips and spine.
Benefits: Custom orthotics can help to alleviate pain and discomfort associated with a variety of foot conditions such as flat feet, plantar fasciitis, over-pronation, diabetic feet, bunions and neuromas. Chiropractors and physiotherapists also can dispense orthotics; however, chiropodists and podiatrists are the regulated health professionals in Ontario, aside from medical doctors, who can prescribe custom orthotics.
