Orthopedic shoes or footwear are specifically made to support and enhance your foot’s health. They are designed to assist you with your foot deformities.

When you meet with one of our chiropodists at Foundation Chiropody, they may suggest one of the following solutions:
Foundation Chiropody uses the latest technology to assess your problems. First, we conduct a biomechanical assessment to obtain a 3D laser image of your feet. Using this 3D image, we make plaster of your feet. This plaster is then used to construct your custom footwear.
A prevalent solution to help mitigate the pain for our patients is our custom orthopedic shoes. Orthopedic footwear can provide therapeutic control or support if you suffer from a foot deformity or abnormality in your leg and ankle.
What is so particular about orthopedic shoes is that it has a firm heel, wide toe box, moderate heel, and extra room in case of a swollen foot. These soles balance the foot, alleviating any excess pressure you may experience.
Here are some advantages of using orthopedic shoes:

If you are suffering from bunions or corns, foot pads made from gel, foam or felt may help alleviate pain. These adhesive pads protect your feet from rubbing against the shoe, which otherwise could make sore spots more painful. All these materials like gel, foam, and felt are medical-grade materials used to assist you with your unique foot care needs.
If your legs and ankles are swollen or suffering from varicose veins, active/healed venous ulcers, or venous insufficiency, then compression stockings can help you. These stockings are designed with gradient compression, which means they are the tightest at your feet and ankle to help the flow of fluid back up your legs.
The gravitational force helps the fluid build up in your legs when you stand or sit. With compression stockings therapy, your blood circulation is bound to improve.
Our orthopedic surgeons at Foundation Chiropody can help your tired or achy legs feel energized by reducing the fluid build-up in your veins/legs with our customized compression stockings. The stockings are available in different gradients (strengths) and lengths.
