We can help you get the insoles you need to get rid of the pain.
Pain is our body’s way of telling us that something is wrong. Whether it is a stomachache after we overeat or chronic pains from injury or illness such as arthritis, pain is our body’s message that something needs to change. More than 25% of people who suffer from arthritic conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis have pains in the foot and ankle, knees or hips. One of the recommendations for dealing with arthritic pain is to keep moving, but being on the move is not easy when you are in pain. Orthotic insoles from Abbott Foot & Ankle Clinic can help to redistribute your weight, relieve pressure on sensitive points in your feet and joints, and help the structural components of your body work at their best.
Once you come to see us, we’ll give you all the expert information you need to know about the proper break-in period practices, regular use, orthotic insole care, wear-and-tear, and refurbishing options for orthotic insoles and more. We’ll warn you about things that might make them wear out faster and things that can ruin them (such as leaving them in a vehicle when it’s hot). We’ll make sure you feel great about your new orthotic insoles by teaching you how to break them in and get used to them and how to make sure they are fitting you perfectly so you enjoy wearing them all the time within a few weeks.
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 trails in Wasaga Beach, Ontario or the treadmill again. 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 orthotic insoles for residents of Collingwood, Wasaga Beach, Owen Sound, Stayner, Meaford, Thornbury, Creemore, The Blue Mountains, and surrounding areas in Ontario.
