Our podiatric clinic has made a specialty of plantar orthotics and offers a wide range of products to its patients.
Once the pathology has been clearly detected and identified by your podiatrist or any other doctor authorized to do so, it is possible to opt for the foot orthosis to relieve you or to prevent the emergence of other medical conditions.
Controlling pain with podiatric orthoses
Our orthotists are at your service to find innovative solutions to pain problems often felt because of pathologies such as heel spur, plantar fasciitis, flat feet, hollow feet (Pes Cavus) or hallux valgus, also called onion.
The foot structure or the patient's gait is impaired and this causes pain that can be corrected by plantar orthotics that will force the foot to keep a normal alignment.
Prevent potential injuries with plantar orthotics
Our feet are used to absorb the weight of the body when in contact with the ground thanks to the structures of which it is formed. The overabsorption of shocks due to the misalignment of your feet can affect your knees, your back and your hips and this can cause injuries in the long term.
Your posture is important and will be evaluated and checked frequently by our podiatrists to follow its potential positive or negative evolution. Our podiatric center in the West Island Montreal is at your service and ensures access to quality care through its network of experienced podiatrists.
Improve sports performance
A podiatrist can also correct the arch of the foot and optimize the function of the feet and lower limbs for improved results during a sports competition. Greater stability of the lower limbs also avoids problems such as sprains in athletes and people who exercise frequently.
Sports orthoses have two uses: to preserve the athlete's health and fitness while improving his/her efficiency and endurance during activities such as long-distance running, walking or cycling. Having orthoses is not only necessarily for people suffering from a condition but also for people in good health!
Help people with diabetes
Some orthotics are specially designed for diabetic feet because they are more fragile and can be easily injured. There are also many other benefits, such as avoiding frequent falls among seniors whose stability is impaired by age-related diseases such as Parkinson's disease, dementia, arthritis or drug overdose.
