Did You Know…
When your knee pain, hip pain, or low back pain keeps coming back you are not resolving the root cause of your pain. Research shows, low back and other joint pain, such as hip and knee pain, can be linked to abnormal foot function. Most people do not know that they have abnormal foot function, because they have no foot pain. However, 8 in 10 Canadians have a foot dysfunction called ‘overpronation’.
Overpronation refers to excessive inward rolling of the feet when walking due to arch collapse and is linked to plantar fasciitis, knee pain, shin splints, low back pain, and even neck pain.
Among professionals, 61% have moderate to severe foot dysfunction. If left untreated, 70% experience pain. 17% of employees have missed work days due to their pain, and 40% of sick leaves are due to back pain. If your work requires you to stand or walk on hard surfaces for prolonged periods of time, you may have an increased risk of developing lower limb or spinal pain.
The good news is, foot dysfunction can effectively be treated with custom orthotics. Custom orthotics are prescription insoles for your footwear that are designed to correct foot dysfunction and help relieve associated muscle and joint pain, as well as prevent overuse injuries in the feet, knees, hips, and spine.
The custom orthotics we dispense at Urban Soles are hand-crafted from premium natural materials such as leather, suede, and merino wool or from performance synthetic materials for durability and all-season comfort and performance. They can be made for any shoe type (e.g. dress, casual, athletic, safety, slippers) and occasion. Whether you are working, cycling, hiking, hitting the water or the slopes, we have an orthotic for that.
We don’t stop there. Our custom orthotic sandals, flip flops, and slippers can meet your orthotic needs when shoes aren’t an option.
If you want to know whether you have a structural foot dysfunction and could benefit from custom orthotics, book a Discovery Visit at Urban Soles.
If you have been dealing with chronic knee, hip, or low back pain, and you are only getting temporary relief from manual or pharmaceutical therapy, your feet might 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 pain and strain in other parts of the body such as the knees, hips, and spine. Looking closely at the connection between your feet and your knees, hips, and spine, we can determine whether you are a candidate for custom orthotics.
