Orthotics Richmond Hill

Orthotics Richmond Hill Foot Clinic 

Most of us tend to take their feet for granted, especially when they are healthy. We rarely think much about them. However, when something immediately goes wrong with them, when we find ourselves with an injured ankle, a serious heel pain, a bunion, painful ingrown toenail, or diabetic wound that never heals… that’s exactly when we begin to notice just how important our feet are. Of course we want them better, don’t you? And healthy, so that we can resume our daily activities and lifestyle with comfort again. To do this, you’ll need a foot specialist. And Orthotics Richmond Hill Foot Clinic promises to make you walk happily, jog and run without feeling any pain or discomfort.

Our facility

One of our main priorities is to provide the well-being of our esteemed patients. At our clinic we treat a variety of podiatric complications, including:

At Orthotics Richmond Hill Foot Clinic, we carry out three modes of treatment for foot care:


Diabetic Foot Care

One of the potential effects of diabetes is a weakened immune system of the body. This state renders the body unable to fight off infections effectively. The body’s damaged nervous system is what causes foot problems. This is so because a weakened nervous system is not capable of relaying information from the feet to the brain. This leads to an inability for such a diabetic patient to feel his/ her feet.

Additionally, such a complication also impairs the normal oil production and sweat secretion at the feet. The end result is therefore an abnormal pressure on the feet during walking.


Custom Foot Orthotics

Custom-made Foot Orthotics or simply Custom Orthotics is a term we hear mentioned whenever people talk about foot, heel, arch, ankle, or hip. A Custom-made Foot Orthotics is a device that is usually placed within a patient’s shoes to assist him/ her with normal foot motions. It helps in aligning the foot and ankle into the best anatomical efficient position. It works by altering both the structural and functional characteristics of the neuromuscular system and skeleton system. The primary function of this therapy is to guide, align, balance, stabilize, control, restore, support and limit the patient’s abnormal motions of the foot during the walking (Gait) cycle.


Pediatric Foot Care

This treatment only applies when we are dealing with infants and children. Taking care of the feet of this group of people is something that doesn’t probably jump to mind for a top priority. But there are so many ailments that can potentially affect the feet of a youngster. These ailments require proper and special steps to ensure they have good foot health. At Orthotics Richmondhill Foot Clinic, we take proper measures to ensure that your baby has a good foot health.
