Posted on Wednesday, August 14th, 2019

We Want to Help You Eliminate Pain…

pain in ankle, foot, heelAre you experiencing aching or sore feet and legs, foot pain, heel pain, ankle pain or knee pain? Take a look at your footwear. Do you notice uneven wear on the back of the heel?

The first thing we want you to know is that pain is not normal. Trying to cope with pain affects your mood, your sleep, and your desire to be active. Say ‘so long’ to pain and hello to your foot-friendly neighbourhood Oakville Registered Chiropodists at Werkman, Boven & Associates.

Give us a call at 905.845.4817 or send us an email. During your first appointment with us, your Chiropodist will ask you questions about your overall health and lifestyle. Then they’ll talk about specifics – and what your current concerns are – like pain! Among other things, your initial foot care visit will include assessing range of motion and conducting a gait analysis. This is when your Chiropodist will discuss pronation and supination of the foot and treatment options, especially those for pain.

Self-diagnosis for foot or leg pain/discomfort is never a good idea. Talk with a Registered foot care provider (Chiropodist or Podiatrist) for helpful information and treatment options. Why? Because there are several options to relieve pain!

One Option may be Custom Made Orthotics…

pronation patternsOrthotics are used to control the degree of pronation and supination of the foot when walking, running, or participating in sports. Custom-made to your feet Orthotics can help to alleviate the pain and discomfort you may suffer from conditions such as:

  • arthritis and joint pain
  • foot disorders such as fallen arches, heel spurs, bunions, sport injuries, etc.

Orthotics for All Ages…

  • People living with diabetes, heel spurs, sesamoiditis, metatarsalgia, pes cavus (high arch) and pes planus (flat feet), ingrown toenails, ulcers and wounds, or corns and calluses may also benefit from the use of custom-made foot orthotics.
  • Orthotics may be recommended for adults who need better shock absorption because of conditions such as arthritis, atrophy of the fibro fatty padding, or a desire to enhance overall comfort or sports performance and longevity.
  • A Registered Chiropodist may determine that a child needs biomechanical orthotic devices to improve foot and leg function. These custom fit orthotic devices fit into the child’s footwear and help the foot perform at its peak efficiency at rest, play, or when competing in sports. By controlling foot function, accommodating deformities and other anomalies, the foot will be given a chance to grow correctly.

Only your Chiropodist knows for sure! Suffer no more!
