York is beautiful. There are parks. There are trees. There is scenery to take in at every corner. However, what do you do when it hurts to walk? What happens when every step causes you pain? How do you put one foot in front of the other when walking, running and even standing still is unbearable? Do you grin and bear it or do you visit Focus Physiotherapy’s York location?
What To Do When The Pain Is Too Much
If every step causes you major discomfort, you can benefit from custom orthotics. These are specialized foot insoles that are designed to fit your feet and lifestyle. Custom foot orthotics are medical devices, which means they are clinically proven to provide a stable and supportive base for your entire body.
Furthermore, custom orthotics are designed for the individual because everyone’s feet are different. In fact, most people have one foot slightly bigger than the other. Our team of certified physiotherapists take this into consideration when prescribing the right orthotics for your feet. Because our orthotics are created to the exact contours of your feet, you will notice a reduction of pain not only on your feet but also on your ankles, knees, hips and lower back.
The Custom Foot Orthotics Process
The first step in the creation of your custom orthotics is a review of your overall foot health and medical history. This allows us to see what kind of foot issues you’ve had in the past, whether it’s bunions, pronation etc. The next step involves a comprehensive biomechanical examination through which we can discover everything from bone misalignment to deformities within the foot and joints.
Plus, if you are overusing your muscles, ligaments and tendons with every step, we will be able to detect it right away. In addition, we will evaluate your gait. You will tell us where it hurts with every step, so we know how to form your orthotics in a way that corrects imbalances and shifts your weight accordingly.
A York Clinic For Your Rehabilitation Needs
At Focus Physiotherapy in York, we focus on our patients’ rehabilitation needs, no matter what those needs may be. Our goal is to provide comprehensive treatment that encompasses everything from custom orthotics, to nutritional guidance, to muscle strengthening.
We do not provide a one-size-fits-all treatment model. Instead, we focus on the individual’s goals to get them back on their feet at a pace that makes sense for them. Like with our orthotics, we customize our rehabilitation programs to the patient because no one responds to treatment in the same way.
We offer everything from massage therapy to pelvic floor retraining because it’s important that all treatment needs are met. Whether you’ve been injured in a motor vehicle accident or are simply looking to improve your posture through the use of foot orthotics, we can help.
