At Lake Road Chiropractic we will assess your whole body, including your feet. Occasionally Patients need foot correction due to excessive rolling in or out of their feet. Biomechanical problems affecting the feet can increase stresses within the foot structures and the surrounding soft tissues, creating localised pain in the feet and ankles as well as problems in the lower limbs, knees, hips and back.
Orthotics allow joints to be aligned correctly and promote efficient transmission of the forces of standing, walking, jogging, running and jumping.
What Specific Conditions May Be Helped?
Correction of poor foot biomechanics with orthotics can improve and prevent many types of pain conditions and symptoms such as:
Achilles tendonitis, metatarsalgia (pain in the ball of the foot), sesamoiditis, toe pain, ankle pain, tibialis dysfunction, impingement syndrome, plantar fasciitis, neuroma, tendonitis, heel spur, pronation/eversion, bunions, shin pain (compartment syndrome, shin splints), Knee Pain, Patello-femoral syndrome and Chondromalacia Patellae.
