Corrective Custom Orthotics at Cafe of Life Chiropractic

If you're experiencing pain and fatigue in your heels, ankles, knees, hips, or lower back, your feet may need a little extra help supporting your body weight evenly and effectively. Imbalances in your arches can cause problems all the way up the chain of weight-bearing joints, leading to chronic pain, frequent injuries, and other issues. Here at Cafe of Life Chiropractic, we can combine our chiropractic care in Toronto with customized orthotic shoe inserts to straighten out your posture and help you walk through everyday life in comfort.

How Orthotics Ease Aches and Pains

To understand exactly what orthotics are and what role they play in easing many kinds of aches and pains, it's first important to consider how your body balances its weight. The stack of weight-bearing joints that includes your spinal joints, hips, knees, ankles, and feet are collectively known as the kinetic chain. They work together, not only to support your weight standing still but also to keep that weight in the balance as you move. The arches of the feet make up the base of this assembly. Strong connective tissues maintain the right degree of an arch to distribute all that weight evenly across the feet.

As successful as this arrangement is, even a small error in its construction can have painful results. For example, many people suffer from pronation (flat feet), overly-high arches, uneven leg length or other imperfections that throw the body off-balance. These deviations from the norm can lead to:

  • Plantar fasciitis (chronic inflammation of the arch of the foot)
  • Knee, hip or ankle pain
  • Low back pain
  • Premature arthritis in the weight-bearing joints
  • Neurological symptoms related to pinched nerves
  • Chronic muscle strain

Orthotics are designed to correct these imbalances. These inserts add extra support to the feet in just the places, correcting your weight distribution and easing stress on the arches.

  • "Life changing is the only way I can describe Cafe of Life Chiropractic. My posture has improved and much of my upper back tension and stuckness has disappeared."

  • "I went to Dr Shaian due to a lower back problem. What I really liked it was that she did not only treat the problem, but explained the root of it and how to addressed it. After my first session I felt like play dough! I have never felt so loose. No massage ever made me feel like that. She created a long term plan to fix my back problem and an easy payment plan."
