Customized orthotics are used to treat foot pain, back pain, plantar fasciitis, sciatica and other foot conditions. Foot problems can lead to pain in the back, knees, hips, legs and pelvis. A slight imbalance in our feet can create a small imbalance or pressure which can irritate soft tissues or even nerves over time. Foot injuries such as plantar fasciitis, shin splints and heel spurs can be aggravated by the constant, daily pressure applied on the foot, preventing the soft tissues to heal properly and increasing chances of a re-injury.
With each patient's needs and specific condition in mind, Chiropractic UAE has teamed up with LifeBalance, a reputable local distributor of Foot Balance products, well known in Europe. These special inserts restore natural movement to the feet, heels and toes making work, daily routines and exercises manageable. These insoles provide the correct support to the feet, relieving pressure and allowing healing of injured soft tissues. With almost 10 years of prescribing insoles for foot problems, patients report less pain, improved foot mobility, 50-70% reduced back pain and improved leg stamina with walking and running.
At Chiropractic UAE, we will customize the inserts to each patient according to their individual needs. We often combine custom orthotics with chiropractic care. We serve the entire Abu Dhabi community and often get referrals from primary care doctors.
Customized Orthotics for You
When you visit our Center, our trained orthotic technicians we will ask you about your clinical history pertaining to your pain, discomfort or performance and perform a thorough foot assessment. They will take a scan of your feet in specific positions to capture foot flaws and abnormalities to help determine how to customize your insoles. This will determine your need for insoles, exercises or stretches or other therapeutic treatment that may help your condition. Depending on your condition and needs, a wedge or an individualized modification will be applied to your insoles. A monthly adjustment to your insoles may be recommended until the desired results have been achieved. Your insoles will be comfortable and flexible, allowing normal foot function, while providing enough support for correction. You can also transfer your insole to up to 3 pair of shoes.
Orthotics are routinely used to treat plantar fasciitis or heel pain caused by inflammation in the tissue at the bottom of the feet. This pain can be caused by injury, age, sports, standing long periods of time, and obesity. We often combine orthotics with specialized chiropractic care, physiotherapy, rehabilitation and exercise to maximize results and long-lasting benefits.
Improper shoes cause strain on the back, legs, and hips. It helps to have customized insoles that support the feet and legs during exercise, daily routines, and sports training. The foot and ankle must protect the legs and back from strain, uneven walking, poor posture, and lack of balance. Children suffering from aching pain in the legs and feet may benefit from orthotics too. Orthotics can also help children with Downs Syndrome who have trouble walking or standing.
