Custom Orthotics & Foot Abnormalities Treatment

Custom Orthotics

Foot pain or discomfort isn’t easy – but there are treatment methods you can access to move easier and live happier.

Abnormalities of the foot lead to issues that affect the ankles, knees, hips, and other parts of your body, impacting your mobility. Custom orthotics are made uniquely to your feet, ensuring you can restore proper function, eliminate chronic pain, and improve your daily life.

At Physiomed, we understand that the right treatment approach is an important part of preventing future health issues. Custom orthotics restore the alignment of the joints, which supports the health and function of the muscles and connective tissues.

The right footwear combined with orthotics and other treatment methods offer you lasting relief from pain.

The Benefits of Custom Orthotics

Custom orthotics and other foot abnormality treatments can eliminate the need for pain medications and are effective in treating the following issues:

  • Fallen arches
  • Achilles tendonitis
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Chronic back pain
  • Joint & other pain due to a structural imbalance

Repetitive movements, trauma, poor biomechanics, and other factors all contribute to these and other common foot health complaints.

Custom orthotics are worn inside the shoes and are designed to fit the unique size and shape of your feet. Most importantly, they align the feet and ankles so that stress on the joints and muscles is reduced or eliminated.

Orthotics are typically created using durable materials that can withstand your daily routine. Working with Physiomed’s integrated health care team, you’ll be able to determine what type of orthotics are right for you.

Treatments that address foot abnormalities provide additional benefits to your health. These include the prevention of future injuries, improved sports performance, reduced muscle tension, increased strength, and postural alignment.

Getting the Right Treatment for Foot Abnormalities

Foot Abnormalities Treatment

We ensure that the treatment you receive is customized to your unique needs. Our comprehensive assessment and evaluation process allows us to develop and implement a treatment plan that works for you.

Our healthcare professionals will examine your feet along with the alignment of the entire body to determine what risk factors may be contributing to your symptoms. This allows us to provide you with the right orthotics designed to fit your feet, so that you can achieve improved function and alignment.

Our Physiotherapists can provide corrective stretches and exercises which can be used together to restore muscle balance. Strengthening exercises can improve the function of muscles that have become weak over time.

This results in a balanced foot that functions efficiently and with minimal stress on the supporting tissues. This improves joint stability, function, balance, and coordination.

Why Use Physiomed Foot Treatments

Your healthcare professional must have the skills to identify the factors that contribute to foot pain and dysfunction issues.

We give you the tools and resources you need to achieve long-term health and function. We teach you how to best use your custom orthotics to achieve results.

Athletes, such as runners, place additional demands on their feet. By taking these and other factors into consideration, we provide treatment plans that are tailored to each person’s needs, background, and lifestyle.

We help patients monitor their progress over time and guide them throughout each step of the treatment plan.

At Physiomed, we strive to help all of our patients achieve a renewed sense of wellbeing. By improving foot function and health, you can address a wide range of foot health problems and resume your daily activities at home, work, and play.
