Aches ’n’ Pains Therapy Centre, a trusted chiropractic and orthotics clinic in Burlington, can provide you with the relief you are looking for with customized orthotics. Many of us have heard about orthotics before, but may have hesitated in pursuing these very effective and therapeutic devices. Dr. White at Aches ’n’ Pains can assist you in diagnosing and fitting your orthotics as well as provide you with the answers to any questions you may have.

In a nutshell, orthotics are custom-made foot insoles that can treat a wide range of foot and ankle ailments — from arthritis to plantar fasciitis, just to name a few — improving your comfort and your health. Instead of suffering in silence, getting orthotics is an effective way to get some relief, as they reduce stress and strain on your body. Orthotics can not only help improve certain ailments but also facilitate the correct alignment of feet and ankles, which in turn aligns the knees, hips and lower back. This can prevent future chronic conditions.

The first step to take is to visit Aches ’n’ Pains for an initial consultation. Dr. White will listen to your concerns, answer your questions, and evaluate your condition to see if orthotics would be beneficial. If orthotics can indeed improve your condition, Dr. White will provide you with a recommendation note so that your family doctor can write you a prescription. This way, the cost of your orthotics may be covered under your insurance plan. If you are concerned about whether or not orthotics are fully or partially covered by your insurance, it is best to review your insurance policy.

Once you have the green light to get orthotics, Dr. White will take a plaster cast of your foot. From there, the orthotics are made, moulded to address specific problem areas. The final product is an orthotic insole that is custom-made to your unique needs, giving you comfort while improving your body’s function when using your feet. The orthotic insoles can be worn in most shoes.
