CUSTOM FITTED FOOTWEAR

At Omni Foot Clinic we do not want to force you into wearing shoes that you are not comfortable with. We understand that many people `feel that orthopaedic shoes are not stylish, unlike most other `clinics, we will not try to convince you that they can be. We love `to work with our patients so that they can continue wearing some of `their favourite shoes while we manage their conditions. We are very `creative and have retrofit and modified many different types of `footwear to help manage our patients conditions. We often have women `who wear stylish and expensive boots to work but have severe foot `pain. Often times we are able to fit these boots with custom made `orthotics to help manage the foot conditions. We have a large selection of Orthopaedic footwear including, athletic, casual, dress & winter. However, if you do not like anything we have we will work with you to find what you do like and do everything in our power to turn your favourite shoes into your most therapeutic shoes. Style and Comfort, yes we can make it happen!

FOOT CARE FOR SENIORS

Our feet are subject to substantial wear and tear throughout our day to day life. As we age this damage becomes more prevalent and needs attention. Foot problems are particularly widespread in the elderly population for many reasons such as; decreased fat pad, diminished circulation, decreased joint function to name a few. As a senior, sometimes it seems like the feet keep getting further and further away making routine maintenance extremely difficult. All of this makes regular foot care appointments extremely important for seniors. Keep your feet active! Like any part of the body, feet need exercise to stay healthy. Every time people walk they exercise their feet. So try to stay active! However, here are some extra ways to keep your feet active:
  • Sit in a chair and try pick up marbles or other small rounded objects with your toes. Repeat this 10-12 times with each foot.
  • Stabilize yourself on a wall or the back of a chair, and then rise to your tiptoes, hold for a second and rock back to your heels. Repeat this 20-25 times.
  • While sitting in a chair or lying in bed, draw out the letters of the alphabet in the air with your toes. Do this a couple of times with each foot.

A FULLY MOBILE CLINIC

At Omni Foot Clinic we understand that there are various circumstances (disability, schedule, distance) that often occur that result in patients being unable to physically come to our site. So let us come to you! We get calls and e-mails from patients who have heard of our exceptional care from all over Southern Ontario. We have traveled to Ajax, Whitby, Markham, Etobicoke, Milton, Mississauga, Hamilton, and London. Phone Omni Foot Clinic Today… for availability and locations. 905.333.8555 As our reputation grows we find more and more people from out of town want to experience our unique and advanced foot care. To help address this situation we have developed a fully equipped mobile unit. This allows us to perform basically all of the treatments and procedures that we do in our clinic at the home of the patient. We have found that this is particularly advantageous to the elderly population (especially during the snowy and icy winter months). We also find that the busy professionals who work late and irregular hours and are looking for convenience often ask for our mobile unit. One of our patient’s, a young mother of two with one more on the way, called our clinic suffering from severe plantar fasciitis. She said that since having children her days have become a whirlwind of activity and it would be next to impossible for her to make arrangements to visit our clinic. No problem! We went to her with our mobile unit at 9:00pm, when the children were sleeping, and were able to effectively manage her condition.

FOOT CARE FOR CHILDREN

It is important to note that children, even toddlers, often require a foot assessment. As children develop their body’s are constantly growing and changing. Often times this has an impact on their lower limbs and can affect how they walk, run and play. If you do have young children it is a good idea to observe them closely while they walk and play. If you notice that your child is often falling or is hesitant to run and keep up with other children of the same age during play it could be due to problems with their feet. Toddlers cannot communicate specific pain or discomfort to their parents directly but picking up on there subtle clues can be key to identifying potential problems early. At Omni Foot clinic we are trained in pediatric assessment and treatment, if you have concerns regarding your child’s foot health give us a call to arrange an assessment.

HOW PREGNANCY CAN IMPACT YOUR FEET

Clearly, there are many changes that are brought about when women become pregnant. Most people do not consider the impact that pregnancy may have on their feet. Pregnancy is hard enough as it is, can you imagine going through it without being able to walk? Most problems can be largely attributed to the significant and sudden weight gain that occurs during pregnancy. This increases the stress on the feet and alters their biomechanical function. This results in changes in the way that you stand and walk. The weight gain is inevitable, so it is important to be prepared to accommodate it as much as possible. Adequate preparation will often prevent serious foot related conditions during pregnancy. With all that is going on during this special time the last thing you would want to have is debilitating foot pain. We suggest you visit us throughout the term of your pregnancy so we can ensure that your feet are as healthy and comfortable as possible.
 Some of the most common complaint & conditions our patients experience are:
There are two major problems; over-pronation and swelling. Over-pronation is a biomechanical condition that will often lead to debilitation pain and may cause; plantar fasciitis, heel pain, arch pain, altered biomechanics, etc. Increased swelling can lead to more than just tight shoes, it can cause; varicose veins, circulation problems, nerve impingement, overall pain, etc. These two problems, over-pronation & swelling, will generally lead to a myriad of foot related pathologies.
