Jane’s specialty is computer designed Orthotics. These prescription, custom made Orthotic inserts worn in shoes, are designed from the patient’s dynamic walking pattern (gait) across a computer mat. The computer image of the moving feet shows high pressure spots, muscle imbalances and high or flat arches that can be balanced and aligned with Orthotics, relieving foot, knee and back pain. Our custom Orthotics control a hypermobile, pronated foot that can reduce swelling, inflammation and pain. Each foot Orthotic is corrected by mathematical degrees compared to a normal average gait (your walk).
Jane also assesses your feet, checks your medical history, evaluates your footwear, analyses your biomechanical gait (walk) and your lifestyle to see if Orthotics are the right treatment for you. Whether you have Plantar Fasciitis, heel pain, bunion pain, knee or back pain, it can be related to your feet and how they function. Orthotics are a long term treatment without costly medication, so most Doctors and insurance companies believe in them. Bring in your Doctor referral and Jane will send a report to your Doctor to collaborate on Orthotic treatment.
Jane has extra depth and extra width shoes and boots by Propet Canada as well as Orthotic footwear from her Orthotic company, Footmaxx.com, night splints for plantar fasciitis stretching at night, and access to Gehwol foot care products, for all your foot care needs.
