Give your feet a break!
Pain is a warning message, but as soon as you feel it, you just want to take a break. So many people go straight for the over-the-counter pain medications. Quality arch support orthotics delivered to you through the thorough examination of your gait and foot can take the “maybe” out of whether or not arch supports or another orthotic will help you. If done properly, with quality medical devices, and for treating diagnosed conditions, arch support will help with your foot and heel pain! Here at Abbott Foot & Ankle Clinic, it is important to us to be direct with you. We don’t want you to simply tough out pain because you are not sure whether it is severe enough to treat and you may not be confident with the treatment options available to you. We want to help you move past that to a better quality of life.
Analyzing your own gait to determine the proper orthotic or arch support for you is simply not feasible. You can do some examination of your own foot, but again you simply don’t have the expertise that Abbott Foot & Ankle Clinic can offer to you. We’ll give you the expert information you need and help you know exactly what to expect to make sure your arch supports are working correctly for you and to help you know how long they will last and how to take good care of them and your feet in the meantime.
We’ll help explain how to find the best shoes for your orthotic insoles and what characteristics to look for – and since Dr. Abbott is a runner himself, we can even give you recommendations on what running shoes to use when you’re feeling up to hitting the ground running again in Wasaga Beach, Ontario. The options for running shoes out there that give the proper room for orthotic insoles are dwindling, but don’t let that stop you– let us put our expertise to work for you and get you up to speed again.
At Abbott Foot & Ankle Clinic, we create arch support for residents of Collingwood, Wasaga Beach, Owen Sound, Stayner, Meaford, Thornbury, Creemore, The Blue Mountains, and surrounding areas in Ontario.
