Custom-made Orthotics are inserts that comfortably fit into footwear and are designed to support and improve the functioning of your feet. Often the first thing to touch the ground in the morning are your feet, and to carry us throughout our daily routines, the 26 bones in each foot need to work cohesively to translate forces upwards, affecting not only our foot health, but also that of our ankles, knees, hips and low back! With state of the art technology, our health care team uses a computerized GaitScan and 3D Laser ScanCast in addition to a hands on assessment to provide the best possible orthotic suited for your needs.
Braces, Equipment and Tens Units
We offer a variety of different prophylactic bracing/supports and custom-made knee braces to suit your needs. Using reputable brands such as Breg and DonJoy we have access to all types of support with the latest technology. Often an injury can make simple tasks more difficult or painful. We have many different types of equipment that can help a patient remain independent and assist with regular function. A consultation is always required to ensure the patient is receiving the right product for his/her needs. From pillows to ankle braces, we can find the right fit for you. Our TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation) units are portable devices that are often used to treat acute and chronic pain. By sending low voltage electrical pulses across the surface of your skin, the TENS unit functions to help prevent pain signals from reaching the brain and stimulate the release of endorphins, the body’s natural painkiller.
