Why do people suffer from foot and foot-related problems?
It’s simple. As you walk, run and move, your entire body weight lands on your feet up to 15,000 times per day. Add to that the perils of high-heeled shoes, flip flops, ill-fitting shoes, and maybe even a little bit of extra weight around the middle – your poor aching feet!
And it doesn’t stop there because eventually those problems just travel further up your body and contribute to knee pain, hip pain and lower back pain. It is possible to walk without pain.
And no, we’re not talking about getting you into your great-grandmother’s orthopedic lace-up shoes!
We’re talking about invisible support that allows you to wear the shoes you love while your feet get the support they deserve. Orthotics are lightweight, thin and easily fit into your existing footwear.
They can be moved from shoe to shoe in an instant, or you can order an extra pair, if it suits your budget and your lifestyle. We also carry specialized orthotics for the arthritic and diabetic foot and we carry many styles of orthotic sandals for casual wear.
The Alberta Government Special Needs Assistance program covers the cost of Orthotics for eligible low income seniors.
If you wince when you walk, you owe it to yourself to make an appointment today.
