It was great. I am actually thinking I will come back. Just need to make an appointment. I have so appreciated how willing Cody is to discuss my questions.

It is the goal of Align Health & Wellness to bring together the four major components of health: body balance, emotional wellbeing, nutritional support and functional exercise.

We refer to these components as โ€œBalance, Thought, Fuel and Functionโ€. At Align Health & Wellness we use the NUCCA chiropractic procedure coupled with biomechanical foot and gait assessment to improve your relationship with gravity.

๐Ÿ‘ฃ Pedorthics is the practice of assessing, modifying, designing and fitting of both custom foot orthotics and footwear to assist in a variety of lower extremity conditions and discomfort or pain.

๐Ÿ‘ฃ Canadian Certified Pedorthists can perform an assessment to look at the whole โ€˜mechanical footโ€™ and provide the correct treatment.

Runners can get foot pain from several places. Poorly fitted shoes are one of the first places to look. Over-training is another common culprit. If you have considered causes like these but still have significant foot pain, then think about getting custom orthotics. โฃ
โฃ
Currently, I am training for the Calgary 70.3 which is a half Ironman.โ  I have used Orthotics for 22 years and use them in both my ๐Ÿ‘Ÿrunning shoes as well as my cycling shoes๐Ÿšด๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ!โ  They have really help me during my runs and ensure I get maximum support during my training and support โฃ

๐Ÿฆถ๐Ÿป Heel Pain & Plantar Fasciitis Treatmentโ 
โ 
Heel pain is one of the most common problems seen by Canadian Certified Pedorthists. Causes include:โ 
โ 
- Poor foot mechanicsโ 
- Improper footwearโ 
- Unfavourable ground conditionsโ 
โ 
Here are 3 pointers Canadian Certified Pedorthists recommend to help prevent and alleviate heel pain:โ 
โ 
๐Ÿƒโ€โ™€๏ธ Carefully and slowly increasing activity to allow the tissues of the lower limbs time to properly adaptโ 
โ 
๐Ÿ‘Ÿ Wearing stable shoes with sturdy heel counters (the back of the shoe) to control motion and provide shock absorptionโ 
โ 
๐Ÿ™…โ€โ™€๏ธ Avoid going barefoot or just wearing socks while injured as poor foot mechanics can aggravate the injury further if not controlledโ

Did you know I can modify your shoe?

Canadian Certified Pedorthists are one of the only foot experts trained in the modification of footwear.

Sometimes conditions can be managed with foot orthotics, or footwear alone and modified shoes can make a dramatic difference in a patientโ€™s life.

Check out my IG stories for 3 different modifications that can be done to your footwear.

The importance of putting a Foot Orthotic in proper footwear?โ

A shoe acts as a foundation for the foot and provides a stable base for the foot orthotic. โ

The footwear itself is an important treatment method. A foot orthotic may be less effective if it is placed in inferior footwear as the shoe may work against the features of the orthotic. โ 
โ 
That is why the foot orthotic is only as good as the shoe it goes into!โ

How long will a Foot Orthotic last?โ 
โ 
โ 
โ 
This varies from patient to patient! Each individual's orthotics are made of materials that are customized to the patientโ€™s foot structure, levels of activity, age and physical condition.โ 
โ 
The lifespan of a foot orthotic should not be measured by when the cover material wears out but by how long the orthotic meets the footโ€™s changing needs for โ 
โ 
โ˜‘๏ธ Supportโ 
โ˜‘๏ธ Correction โ 
โ˜‘๏ธ Pressure redistribution. โ 
โ 
If your symptoms begin to return it is a good idea to have your orthotic reassessed to determine if modifications or a new device are necessary.โ

๐Ÿ‘Ÿ On average, a running shoe last 700km before it stops providing you with the support you need. โ 
โ 
โ 
๐Ÿ‘‰ For active people who run 3-4 times a week, they need to change their shoes after a year. โ

Even if you are not that active, the plastic material that running shoes are made of will harden in your closet, which means your shoes will not provide you with the protection that you need - @pedorthic_canadaโ

Foot FAQ/Fact Friday

Q: Can you wear orthotics in skates and ski boots?

A: The short answer is yes.

No matter the activity, if your feet need some extra support or cushioning a custom orthotic can be made to work with your feet and fit in the appropriate footwear. Skates and ski boots require a lower profile orthotic that has a shape that reflects the contours of the inside of the footwear. Because skates and ski boots generally have a firm/stiff boot they act differently then your regular day to day footwear. Having orthotics made specifically for this type of footwear means you can put them in and leave them there. In addition to the unique fit requirements, the actions that your feet perform inside skates or ski boots can be very different from those in your street shoes and the orthotics may require different specifications. Your Canadian Certified Pedorthist will ask you to bring in your skates or ski boots to your initial assessment and when fitting the orthotics. Some C. Ped (C)s are also skilled in modifying your winter sports footwear for things like bony prominences. In most cases youโ€™ll need to have your custom orthotics made specifically for your skates and ski boots as it is unlikely that they will be interchangeable to other footwear like running shoes or sandals.
