Custom Orthotics Edmonton
Our goal at River Stone Wellness Centre is to help you relax and reduce stress, but we also want to help you heal and improve your overall well-being!
We know that a lot of chronic back, knee, ankle, and foot pain can be caused by how we walk. No one is perfect and misalignment in our feet, legs and pelvis can affect how we step can magnify into pain.
Common Orthopedic Conditions
Your feet are highly complex structures that contain bones, muscles, ligaments, tendons, and blood vessels. They support and balance your body weight, so issues with your foot’s structure can lead to other issues throughout your body.
Not only can custom orthotics address alignment issues and imbalances while you walk, but they can also help relieve foot pain caused by medical conditions including the following:
How Custom Orthotics Work
A custom orthotic is a special shoe or shoe insert that controls the alignment and function of your foot.
Our orthotics experts at River Stone Wellness Centre perfectly fit your foot in order to redistribute the pressure on the bottom of your feet to reduce, pain and discomfort.
This is what sets custom orthotics apart from insoles. Insoles are cushioning and supportive pieces you can buy in stores without a prescription. They are made of materials such as plastic, gel, and foam and fit into your shoes. They can provide arch support and extra cushioning around your toes and heels but they are not designed to correct foot problems.
Orthotics, on the other hand, are custom-made. This means our team will take all of your unique needs and conditions into consideration when determining your footwear needs!
