orthotic therapy


Orthotics are shoe inserts . They are crafted to correct  an abnormal foot arch and to regulate the walking pattern. Properly fitted orthotics limit abnormal function of the foot and ankle and can make a big improvement in comfort for individuals who are experiencing pain while standing, walking, or running. Orthotic inserts can be used to treat foot, knee and back pain.
West End Chiropractic and Massage utilizes a unique and highly accurate casting method to diagnose and treat foot issues. The Ortho-tronic scanning method is a computerized static weight bearing scan of the foot arches.
Orthotics take various forms and are constructed of various materials. Most of the orthotics that we prescribe are made from semi rigid plastic. It allows for some movement but does an excellent job of supporting and correcting biomechanical problems.

If you experience foot problems such as Heel Spurs, Plantar Fasciitis, Interdigital neuroma, Bunions, Hammer Toe you should consider a consult for a digital foot scan.

If you have any questions, concerns or would like an appointment for an orthotic consult don’t hesitate to call us at 250 478 9378 or leave us an email
