Customized Orthotics– A custom orthotic is a device designed to align the foot and ankle into the most anatomically efficient position. They look like insoles, but are biomechanical medical devices that are custom made to correct your specific foot imbalance. Custom orthotics work on your feet much like glasses work on your eyes – they reduce stress and strain on your body by bringing your feet back into proper alignment. The plastic body of the custom orthotic helps to re-align the foot by redirecting and reducing certain motion that takes place during the gait cycle. Custom orthotics fit into your shoes as comfortably as an insole – and they have the advantage of having been made from precise imprints of your feet.

Our chiropractors can dispense custom orthotics to help correct your specific foot and body imbalance. You can help your health care practitioner by discussing any nagging foot, leg, or back problems, and even by simply asking if your feet could be part of the problem. The majority of extended health care plans include orthotic coverage. Contact our clinic for a complimentary orthotic assessment and see if orthotics can help you!

The symptoms of poor foot mechanics can include any one of the following:

  • Localized foot pain
  • Bunions and hammer toes
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Arch and heel pain
  • Leg and knee pain
  • Hip and low back pain

Compression Stockings– Medical gradient compression stocking promote better blood flow which helps to control swelling in the legs and feet, varicose veins, fatigue in the legs and other leg conditions. Compression stockings are designed to deliver a controlled amount of pressure which is greatest at the ankle and gradually decreases towards the top part of the stocking. This pressure gradient helps return blood to the heart and reduces swelling in the ankle/legs, while relieving tired achy legs.

Who should wear gradient compression stockings?

People who are experiencing any of the following conditions can benefit from wearing compression stockings:

  • Expectant mothers
  • Tired, aching or fatigued legs
  • Overweight
  • Lymphedema
  • Swollen feet, ankles and legs
  • Prolonged standing or sitting
  • Venous insufficiency
  • Family history of venous leg disorders
  • Other conditions as recommended by your doctor

Additionally, many individuals without preceding conditions simply enjoy wearing the stockings and how they feel on their legs. Patients should consult our chiropractors to see if compression stockings could be of benefit. Most extended health plans cover the price of medical grade compression stockings.

Water-Base Pillows– Advanced Health & Wellness carries professional Chiroflow water-base pillows. The pillows have a water layer at the base that provides outstanding comfort and responsive support for the head and neck. Above the water base is a super-soft, hypo-allergenic polyester fiber which provides outstanding comfort. A thermal insulator fully encases the water layer to prevent body heat from being drawn from the head, neck, and shoulders. This base of the pillow provides response head and neck support and is an essential component of the comfort of the pillow. Easy to follow instructions show how much water to add for soft, medium and firm support.

These pillows have been clinically tested and are shown to improve quality of sleep and significantly reduce neck pain. In a study that compared the Chiroflow pillow to other cervical pillows the subject rated the Chiroflow pillow best in the following categories:

  • How fast subjects fell asleep
  • How few times subjects awoke
  • Perception of sleep vs normal
  • Overall sleep quality
  • Reduction of neck pain

Biofreeze Pain Relieving Gel. A fast-acting, deep penetrating, longer lasting pain reliever. Biofreeze can effectively help relieve pain from sore muscles, muscle sprains, back, shoulder and neck pain, arthritis and muscular strains.  Once a muscle or joint is injured, regular exercise is typically the key to rehabilitation. But when pain limits a body’s ability to exercise, the healing process takes longer. Biofreeze products help break this pain cycle by relieving pain through a method known as “Gate Control. In this process, menthol acts to stimulate specific sensory receptors in the skin, thereby blocking other receptors from sending pain signals to the brain. Biofreeze pain relieving gel may be used up to four times a day, both before exercise or sporting event (to relieve painful movement) and afterwards (to soothe muscle and joint soreness).
