Orthotics can be helpful in achieving proper foot dynamics and can make a great difference in the movement of your joints. As you age, the muscles in your feet can weaken, and just as glasses help your vision, orthotics can support your fallen arches. This can have a positive effect on your knees, hips, back etc.
In addition, Integrated Health Centre offers a FREE Gait Analysis which can aid in your decision about whether you need fully custom or off the shelf orthotics to correct your issues.
Our Birkenstock orthotics are bought right off the shelf, available in different widths and with the great Birkenstock cork sole that we all love. The next level in customization are our semi-custom orthotics. Semi-custom means that they are bought off the shelf and can be worn as is or can be heat moulded specifically for your feet.
This can be achieved at home by yourself or with the professional assistance of our chiropractors who ensure a perfect fit with no need for a ‘break in’ period. Finally, the optimal orthotic that is available at IHC is a custom orthotic.
