ORTHOTICS

ORTHOTICS

An orthotic is a corrective device worn inside a shoe that can help the muscles, tendons and bones of your feet and lower legs function at their highest potential. Our custom made orthotics are made especially for your feet, and body’s individual needs. When prescribed, our custom made orthotics not only decrease pain in your feet, but in other parts of your body too, such as your lower back, hips and knees. An added bonus is that they can fit inside almost any type of shoe.

ORTHOTICS HELP WITH

  • Foot, knee and lower back pain
  • Aligning and supporting the foot or ankle
  • Correcting / accommodating foot deformities
  • Improving overall function of the foot / ankle
  • Bunions

ORTHOPEDIC SHOES

Orthopedic shoes are designed to support the heel and arch of the foot and encourage blood flow to keep down swelling. Patients who are coping with pain in their feet, ankles, or legs will find relief in a pair of properly fitted, orthopedic shoes. The MEDIC8 CLINIC has a wide variety of orthopedic shoes that will ease your pain, while maintaining some sense of style cohesively.

COMPRESSION STOCKINGS

Compression stockings are used to remedy tired and achy, swollen legs, varicose veins and most leg ulcers that are a result of poor circulation in the legs. The flow of blood up the legs is often slow, which can cause congestion. Compression stockings provided a graduated compression that aids in blood flow back up to the heart. Diabetics can find relief from their poor circulation with their use.

TENS UNITS

A TENS unit is a device that reduces pain and inflammation by stimulating the body’s nerves and muscle groups. It is a small unit that can be used safely by all members in your family. TENS units help to control chronic pain in any part of the body through the use of electric pulses that are delivered to specific areas that block pain signals. There is also evidence that shows how TENS units can help release endorphins in the body!
