Are You Struggling With Chronic Knee, Hip, Or Low Back Pain?

Your feet could be to ‘blame’.

During a Discovery Visit at Urban Soles, we take a highly detailed digital image of your feet and identify whether you have a structural dysfunction that could lead to strain in other parts of the body and to painful conditions such as shin splints, patella-femoral pain (knee pain), as well as hip and low back pain. 

We show you the connection between your feet and your knees, hips, and spine and explore whether custom orthotics can help you feel and move better.
