Custom Orthotics in London Ontario

Foot orthotics are devices that help properly align and control various parts of the body to help ease pain and make movements easier and more comfortable. At The Health Network in London, Ontario, we specialize in foot orthoses and provide foot solutions to our clients. Typical foot-pain solutions include fitting clients with custom orthotics and orthopedic shoes. We work with each client on an individual basis to determine their exact needs.

Custom Pain Relief for your Feet

The need for foot orthotics is often a vital one since the foot is always in motion and under lots of pressure from the body’s weight. When you walk or run, whether on a treadmill or pavement, your entire body weight lands on your feet – often up to a staggering 15,000 times a day.

Over 75% of Canadians will suffer from foot-related pain during their lifetime. For some people, these problems will only be minor annoyances but for others, problems can often mean weeks, months or even years, of pain and discomfort. Since our feet play such a big role in our everyday lives, many foot-related problems can lead to many common foot, ankle, knee, hip and lower-back issues. This is why having orthotics that have been custom-fitted to your feet by an orthotist or chiropodist is so important.

Footmaxx at The Health Network

One of the orthotic brands we use at the Health Network is called Footmaxx. Footmaxx orthotics are made by our practitioners after they have assessed your gait. The way you walk and the pressure you use to do so are captured with a computer forceplate and are then analyzed to develop a 2-D and 3-D picture of your feet. This allows us to get an accurate picture of your feet so that you will get the best custom orthotics that are fitted precisely for you.

Footmaxx orthotics are used and endorsed by many professional sports teams, including in MLB, NHL, NFL, NBA, WNBA, CFL, IHL, ECHL, ATP and NCAA. Some notable athletes who have benefitted from Footmaxx orthotics are Roger Clemens, Rick Tocchet, Todd Stottlemyre, Gary Sheffield and Bobby Bonilla.

Whether you’re a seasoned athlete, weekend warrior or you just want to feel better on a daily basis, contact the Health Network today. We’ll schedule an appointment for you to get fitted for custom orthotics and give you the exact foot solution that you need.
