An orthotic is a custom-made medical appliance that fits directly into footwear to improve alignment and posture. By changing the forces acting upon the foot, an orthotic acts to relieve pain and improve efficiency of movement. They can be made of hard plastic or soft foam, and fit into a variety of shoes including skates, sports shoes and protective footwear.
An orthotic can help you by correcting how your feet come into contact with the ground, which alters the way in which the downward pressure of your body is distributed around your feet and ankles. This can relieve strain on your body, reducing pain and fixing poor posture. Our chiropractors are equipped to carry out a full medical examination to determine whether or not a foot orthotic is advised.
Unlike other manipulation therapies, Chiropractic Therapy focuses on the manipulation of the spine through a series of adjustments and mobilizations. Adjustments are commonly high-velocity motions applied to abnormal vertebra with the goal to improve symmetry and functionality. Chiropractic mobilization refers to a slow manipulation and stretching of muscles and joints with the goal of increasing the range of motion within specific areas of the spine.
