NO MORE FOOT PAIN. Helping to improve quality
Custom made orthotic and orthopaedic shoe packages include exceptional brand name footwear combined with precision made orthotic appliances.
If you are experiencing pain or discomfort in your feet, ankles, knees, hips, or lower back, the cause may be a functional problem with your feet or ill-fitting shoes.
When walking, the average person takes 8,000 to 10,000 steps each and every day. When running, the pressure on your feet can be 3-4 times your body weight.
It is very important to understand that your feet support you with each step and can have a direct impact on the rest of your body. A seemingly small change in foot function can have a large impact on joints higher up in the body, causing pain and discomfort.
Just imagine, 25% of all the bones in your body are in your feet. Feet are a complex arrangement of 52 bones, 66 moveable joints, 214 ligaments that hold these joints together, and 38 muscles with tendons that move these joints.
