At York Foot Orthotics and Bracing, we create custom orthotics for our patients.
The way you walk can have a significant impact on how your feet and legs feel at the end of the day. Whether you spend most of the day on your feet or you enjoy traveling and exploring new places, dealing with foot pain is frustrating and can be debilitating. Health conditions can cause your feet to hurt, including arthritis, plantar fasciitis, and diabetes, but even those who are generally healthy may find that they feel discomfort after long days of walking. The foot is a complex structure that includes hundreds of tendons, ligaments, muscles, and blood vessels, complemented by 26 different bones. Your feet support your weight and allow you to balance, but alterations and misalignments in their structure can cause pain.
Orthotics can improve the way your foot hits the ground with every step you take, known as your foot strike. However, it’s important to get the right orthotics. Some people make the mistake of purchasing mass-produced insoles, but these typically don’t provide much relief. At York Foot Orthotics and Bracing, we create custom orthotics for our patients. We work with individuals located throughout King City, Ontario to provide custom-made support devices that offer real results.
You should never ignore foot pain or discomfort, as it’s often a sign of an underlying issue that needs to be corrected. Orthotics can make a significant difference in the way your feet feel at the end of the day. They can also resolve knee and ankle pain and balance issues, as well as other conditions.
