Acupuncture

Acupuncture stimulates the body’s natural defences in order to initiate the healing process. Acupuncture promotes the flow of energy through the insertion of very thin needles into specific points on the body in order to restore the body’s health and balance. With acupuncture there is an increase endorphin levels throughout the body leading to increases in circulation which ultimately initiates an immune response that helps target the cause of discomfort and pain.

Custom Foot Orthotics

Custom Orthotics are custom-tailored devices specifically crafted to meet the needs of a particular individual. This is done by performing a computerized gait scan in order to properly analyze phases of gait. This is followed by forming an impression of the foot called a cast. The impressions duplicate any misalignments in the foot. Specialists in our partner’s orthotic laboratory can then correct the misalignments with compensation and stabilization techniques. The finished orthotic is then placed in the patient’s shoe and helps keep the foot in proper alignment.

To view a full line of custom orthotics and customized shoe orthotics please visit our partner’s website at www.oolab.com.
