Custom Orthotics Designed with Your Feet in Mind
Heel pain is a common complaint of active people. It is often caused by plantar fasciitis, an inflammation of the ligament under your foot, but there can be many other things going on, as well. Visit our heel pain centre to learn more. The good news is that custom orthotics can be very effective in dealing with your discomfort and getting you back to normal activity again.
With an expert understanding of foot structure and function, we can design an orthotic especially for the specifics of your feet. Our custom inserts are not just pulled off the shelf in a box. We gather your medical and activity history, thoroughly examine your foot, and perform a gait analysis to identify any biomechanical issues.
If we determine that orthotics could help you, we make a precise 3-D laser image of your foot in a neutral position—not standing, where it is already flattened out. This helps us custom-design a support that matches all the dips and hollows of your foot and maintains correct bone alignment. Unlike some places, our orthotics won’t cost you an arm and a leg, either. If you’d like more help on buying these customized supports, order our free report, The Orthotics Guide, on our website.
From Fungal Nails to Shin Splints—We Can Help
Toenail problems can be extremely painful, and Abbott Foot & Ankle Clinic can help you find the answer for them. For fungal infections that turn the nail yellow and crumbly, a black toenail from running, or even a rare malignant melanoma that turns up in our screening, we have the expertise and advanced treatment options you need to recover. Visit our nail laser treatment page to find out more about eliminating toenail fungus with laser therapy.
Stress fractures, tendonitis, bursitis, metatarsalgia—we can help you with them all. We offer excellent diabetic foot care, too, and can help you recover from sports injuries of all kinds. Physiotherapy can be an effective part of that recovery, and we have the latest treatment modalities. Besides manual therapy and heat or cold therapy, we often use electric stimulation and laser therapy to promote healing in your lower limbs.
