ONCE A PERSON HAS BEEN PRESCRIBED CUSTOM ORTHOTICS BY THEIR FOOT SPECIALIST OR DOCTOR IT IS VERY IMPORTANT TO WEAR THEM ALL THE TIME WHEN YOU ARE WEIGHT BEARING.  SANDALS ARE A FAVOURITE SUMMER SHOE, ESPECIALLY BY WOMEN.  THERE ARE MANY FASHIONABLE SANDALS ON THE MARKET THAT CAN ACCOMMODATE CUSTOM ORTHOTICS.  USUALLY THESE SANDALS PROVIDE MORE SUPPORT WHICH IS ALWAYS AN ADDED BENEFIT.  THE SANDAL AND ORTHOTIC USUALLY HAVE TO BE PRESCRIBED BY A PODIATRIST, FOOT DOCTOR, CHIROPODIST, DOCTOR OR OTHER FOOT SPECIALIST.  MANY TIMES THE ORTHOTIC WILL BE COVERED UNDER YOUR EXTENDED HEALTH INSURANCE PLAN.

THE BENEFITS OF CUSTOM ORTHOTICS TO YOUR HEALTH CAN BE IMMENSE.  IF YOUR FOOT PRONATES AND YOU HAVE A FALLEN ARCH, THEN YOUR ANKLE ROLLS IN AND YOUR LOWER LIMB MEDIALLY ROTATES WHICH AFFECTS THE MECHANICS OR YOUR FOOT, ANKLE, KNEE, HIP AND SPINE.  CUSTOM ORTHOTICS CORRECT THIS.  WE HAVE HAD MANY PATIENTS GET CUSTOM ORTHOTICS AND THEIR SPINAL PAIN OR KNEE PAIN DISAPPEAR.

THERE IS A SAYING THAT 'AS THE TWIG IS BENT, SO GROWS THE TREE'.   THAT IS WHY IT IS VERY IMPORTANT TO HAVE CHILDREN CHECKED AT THE AGE OF 3 SO THAT IF THERE IS A PROBLEM IT CAN BE CORRECTED AND THEIR JOINTS CAN GROW IN THE NORMAL POSITION.

IF YOU OR A LOVED ONE WOULD LIKE HONEST, COMPETENT ADVISE OR FOOT CARE, PLEASE DO NOT HESITATE TO CONTACT OUR FOOT CLINIC.
