Your feet are the foundation of your body, and they are subject to tremendous stress in supporting your body while you stand, walk, run, ski, snowboard, or skate. If you are exploring whether orthotics are for you, we will help you find the correct Nanaimo orthotics for your needs. It is important to understand that dysfunction in your feet can lead to problems up to your ankle, knees, hips, back, and even neck!
An Orthotic is a device worn inside your shoe that many of our clients say helps the muscles, tendons and bones of their feet and lower legs to function at their highest potential. When appropriately prescribed to treat a medical condition, custom-made Orthotics can decrease pain, not only in your feet, but in other parts of the body, such as your knees, hips and lower back.
At Atlas Chiropractic & Body Balance in Nanaimo, custom Orthotics are manufactured from a 3-D image of your foot using raw materials. Dr. Whyte will carry out a full biomechanical examination of your feet and related lower extremity, including gait patterns, and measurements.
