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:
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).
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.
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.
