Orthotics & Orthopedic Shoes

KULHAY WELLNESS FOOTCARE orthotics can put “nature back in your shoes”!

 

 

 

WHEN YOUR HEAD HURTS, COULD IT BE YOUR FEET?Yes, it’s true . . . If you suffer from headaches, your feet could be the cause.

 

 

HERE’S WHY!

Our feet were originally designed to walk on soft ground—that’s why walking barefoot at the beach feels so good. But instead, most of us spend every day walking on hard pavement and floors.

These hard surfaces combined with hard-soled shoes, often cause our feet and ankles to struggle to retain their natural angle. This causes our feet to roll inwards and our arches to flatten.

As a result, we lose our natural footprints that we leave behind at the beach. This condition is called excess pronation and currently, over 50% of the population suffer from it. Sporting activities, prolonged standing and being overweight can make pronation even worse.

As our feet, ankles, and legs attempt to cope with this imbalance, a chain reaction of chronic aches and pains may travel literally from head to toe.

Besides mysterious headaches, these symptoms may include: low back pain, tired aching legs, weak ankles, knee pain, heel spurs, poor posture, bunions and corns. The true cure for these conditions is to treat the cause, not just the symptoms.

 

THE ANSWER IS TO CLAIM BACK YOUR FOOTPRINT

To restore your natural balance, correct excess pronation and to protect your feet from hard, flat surfaces . . . claim back your footprint! Orthotics can be the answer.

These custom-fitted shoe inserts work quickly and naturally by restoring the entire foot’s structure, both skeletal and muscular, to the correct position. In turn, our ankles and legs regain their natural balance and we regain our footprint.

With orthotics, you’ll claim back the footprint that the modern world took from you.

 

WHAT IS A CUSTOM-MADE ORTHOTIC?

Prescription orthotics are medical devices that are custom made to correct abnormal foot and leg function.

Orthotics work on the feet the same way braces work on the teeth, i.e. by exerting gentle pressure to bring foot muscles and bones back into proper alignment. They fit comfortably into shoes and are made from custom impression taken from your feet.

Your feet are gently and consistently forced into the correct functioning position for standing, walking and running. Pressure points, improper rotation of the foot, painful knee strain and abnormal forces on the legs, hips, knees and feet are eliminated because orthotics enable your feet to function properly.

HOW DOES AN ORTHOTIC HELP MY MOBILITY?

  • Foot pain due to bunions, fallen arches or heel spurs can often be reduced or eliminated by wearing an orthotic.

  • Low back pain can be due to poor foot mechanics and an orthotic can reduce this problem.

  • Stability of the heel and foot greatly affects your balance.

 

Who Should Have Their Feet & Gait Checked at Kulhay Wellness Footcare?

  • SENIORS: To ensure maximum comfort and support for arthritic, diabetic and sore painful feet on hard surfaces. Let’s get walking with comfortable orthotics!

  • MOMS & MOMS-to-BE: Hormones cause a woman’s body to change and feet can “spread and flatten” with the added pregnancy weight and lifting children. Orthotics are a natural way to help support all the way!

  • CHILDREN:“As the twig is bent, so the tree will grow”.Between the ages of 4-18 years, children’s feet can be corrected and moulded (like braces on their teeth) to grow straight and tall. Have your child checked!

  • ATHLETES:Training for any sporting event starts from the ground up. How an athlete runs or walks, will affect their overall sporting performance. Maximize your training results with a computerized foot and gait check-up!

  • OFFICE PERSONNEL:Standing on hard surfaces at work and repeated movements can jolt the body and lead to foot, knee and low back pains. Most office insurance plans will cover your examination and your custom-made orthotics. Check out your plan!

  • According to studies, 99% of all feet are perfect at birth. At five years of age, 40% of children have developed problems in their feet and over 80% have problems by age 20.

  • If your feet aren’t supporting your body properly, then each step is doing more damage to your feet, your knees, hips and low back.
