Orthotics

How Orthotics Help You!

It's all about supporting your foundation, and that starts with your feet. Whether you are standing, walking or running, they provide you with support. By stabilizing and balancing your feet, orthotics enhance your body’s performance and efficiency, reduce pain, and contribute to your total body wellness.

What are orthotics? 
A foot orthotic is a device that can be inserted into the shoe to support, align, prevent and or accommodate foot deformities and improve foot function. Used in conjunction with appropriate footwear, a foot orthotic can be effective in helping to treat a number of foot and lower limb problems including heel, arch and forefoot pain, shin splints, as well as pain and complications related to health conditions such as diabetes and arthritis.

Orthotics can help a range of foot and health conditions including: 

  • Achilles Tendinitis
  • Ankle Sprains
  • Foot Numbness
  • Hammertoes
  • Lower Back Pain
  • Metatarsalgia
  • Neuroma
  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • Prosterior Tibal Weakness
  • Shin Splints
  • Tired Feet

Who needs to wear orthotic shoes?
From mild discomfort in the foot and knee to severe problems, a foot orthotic can help a wide range of patients.

How long will a foot orthotic last?
The lifespan of a foot orthotic varies from patient to patient. The materials used to make the foot orthotic, the patient’s foot structure, current levels of activity, age and physical condition all have an impact on the lifespan of a foot orthotic. The shell of the foot orthotic is the strong material that shapes it. It generally lasts longer than the top cover (the material used as an interface between the shell and the patient’s foot). The materials often used as top covers will compress over time but can easily be replaced. 
The lifespan of a foot orthotic should be measured not by when the finishing touches (the cover material) wear out but by how long it meets the foot’s changing needs for support, correction and pressure redistribution. If your symptoms begin to return it is a good idea to have your orthotic reassessed to determine if modifications or a new device are necessary.

Testimonial

  • "I was referred to Dr. Dalya several years ago by a close friend. Prior to seeing Dr. Dalya, I had suffered chronic lower back pain (sometimes quite severe) on and off for 20 years. I had been treated by other chiropractors and practitioners generally resulting in limited and short term relief from symptoms.

    Dr. Dalya treated me with a combination of chiropractic care, physical therapy and exercise to strengthen the lower back and "core" muscles. The results have been simply amazing. My chronic back pain has simply gone away!

    Dr. Dalya is a very dedicated, competent, caring and fun person. I highly recommend her."
