Serving the Hamilton, Burlington and Guelph areas, come to us if you need local treatment from your foot, leg and overall body issues. Our experienced team can help the following ailments and conditions:

Arthritis

Arthritis is a common disease that can affect the joints, skin and various internal organs of the body. Canadian Certified Pedorthists help patients retain and enhance mobility through proper foot care, suitable footwear selections and/or custom-made foot orthotics, if appropriate.

Diabetes

Long term complications in people with diabetes frequently manifest in foot problems such as infections and ulcerations that can lead to amputation. In fact, foot problems are the leading cause of hospitalization for Canadians living with diabetes.

Plantar Fasciitis (heel pain)

One of the most common heel problems seen by Canadian Certified Pedorthists, plantar fasciitis is the inflammation and irritation of the plantar fascia (a thick fibrous tissue that extends from the heel to the toes, supporting the arch). Poor foot posture or excessive ankle motion during walking can strain the plantar fascia resulting in small tears and increased tension where the fascia attaches to the calcaneus (heel).

Achilles Tendonitis

Achilles tendonopathy is an injury to the Achilles tendon just above the heel on the back of the leg. This condition may be due to abnormal or excessive strain on the tendon from poor shock absorption or excessive foot pronation.

Bunions & Bunionettes

A bunion is a bony enlargement or bump located on the side of the big toe joint. This area is often irritated and made more painful by tight fitting shoes which cause pressure and friction on the area. A bunionette is an enlargement of the baby toe joint.

Shin Splints

Shin splints are the common name often given to pain at the front of the lower leg. Usually symptoms occur at the front inside of the shin bone but can arise from a number of causes.

Claw & Hammer Toes

Claw toe deformity is where both the first and second joints within the toes are permanently flexed. Pain in the ball of the foot and painful corns may occur on top of flexed joints or underneath the tip of the toe.

Limb Length Discrepancies

Leg length discrepancy is the difference in lengths of an individual’s legs. This difference may be anatomical or may be due to scoliosis, trauma/injury, arthritis, overpronation (collapse) of one foot, bowing of one leg or unequal bowing, surgery (hip or knee replacement), pelvic tilting or ageing.

Sports Injuries

Fit is very important when choosing athletic footwear. If you choose a shoe that is too short, too long, or the wrong width, it can affect the function of your foot. If you do suffer from a sport injury, a Canadian Certified Pedorthist can be an invaluable member of your team.

Metatarsalgia

Metatarsalgia is a term used to describe a group of forefoot conditions that cause pain, burning or discomfort under the ball of the foot or in the metatarsal bones. Each foot has five metatarsal bones that run from the arch of your foot to your toe joints.

Other Injuries Due to Accidents

When examining feet, we will spend up to one hour or more in the initial consultation to evaluate the patient’s walking patterns (gait) for a comprehensive understanding of how the foot moves during the gait cycle. This consultation also includes a detailed patient history and complete Pedorthic biomechanical evaluation looking at the lower limb in static and dynamic positions including joint position, arch height, knee position, rear foot position and toe deformities.
