At Foundation Chiropody, we want to help our patients soothe their pain using custom orthotic shoes at our Mississauga foot clinic. We start with an assessment, quickly followed by a treatment plan designed to diminish your pain. When you meet with one of our chiropodists, they may suggest one of the following therapies:
If custom orthotics is the right course for you, Foundation Chiropody will use the latest technology to assess your needs. First, we conduct a biomechanical assessment to obtain a 3D laser image of your feet. Using this 3D image, we make a plaster of your feet. This plaster is then used to construct your custom footwear.
Our patients often require special shoes to mitigate their body pain. Custom orthopedic shoes have a firm heel, wide toe box, moderate heel, and extra room in case feet swell. These soles balance the foot, alleviating any excess pressure you may experience.
Gel, Foam and Felt Foot Pads
If you are suffering from bunions or corns, then foot pads made from gel, foam or felt may help alleviate pain. These adhesive pads protect your feet from rubbing against the shoe, which could make sore spots more painful.
If your legs and ankles are swollen, or you are suffering from varicose veins, active/healed venous ulcers, venous insufficiency, compression stockings can help you. These stockings are designed with gradient compression, which means they are the tightest at your feet and ankle in order to help the flow of fluid back up your legs. When you stand or sit, gravitational force helps the fluid to build up in your legs. With compression stockings therapy, your blood circulation will improve.
Help your tired or achy legs feel energized with the reduction of fluid build-up in your veins/legs with compression stockings. The stockings are available in different gradients (strengths) and lengths.
