An orthotic is a mechanical device designed to align the anatomically efficient position of foot and ankle. They may appear like insoles, but are medical appliances tailor-made to correct your foot imbalance. 

Orthotics are just like eyeglasses. They work on your feet and reduce strain and stress on your body by bringing your feet into proper alignment. They are made to fit around your feet as comfortably as an insole. Furthermore, they have the benefit of having been custom built from precise imprints of your feet.

How Do They Help?

Orthotics are custom molded to provide much-needed support to your feet. By gently correcting foot abnormalities, they help restore the natural alignment and balance of your body.

How Would You Know You Need an Orthotic?

Your feet directly impact the rest of your body. A small problem with your feet can put stress on joints higher up in your body and cause a subtle change in the way you walk - leading to more severe problems. 


You may need an orthotic if you are suffering from any faulty foot mechanics, including:


  • Arch/heel pain
  • Localized foot pain
  • Leg/knee pain
  • Hip or back pain
  • Bunions, hammer toes

Compression Stockings

Heavy legs and swollen ankles are signs of venous insufficiency, which is a serious health condition with real consequences. A visible sign of a venous weakness could be the tightness of your shoes during the day. Wearing compression stocking is the key when it comes to treating various venous disorders, especially that of lower extremities.  

Compression stockings improve venous flow, which helps to control leg swelling and treat several conditions related to inadequate blood circulation in the legs. 

Why Do You Need Compression Stockings?

Compression stockings are often prescribed by a physician to treat leg conditions like thrombosis, phlebitis, and aftercare following sclerotherapy and surgery. They are also used to relieve conditions of chronic venous disease such as varicose veins, heavy legs, leg ulcers, and edemas. 

Many physicians also prescribe stockings to prevent venous issues during long-distance travel and pregnancy. Low-pressure compression stockings can be purchased without prescription if no underlying health problems like severe arterial insufficiency are present.
