Treatment and Prevention at Foot Solutions®

Below are some of the more common treatments for foot injuries. Our trained professionals would be delighted to help treat your specific complaint.

Wearing correctly fitted shoes can help eliminate so many foot problems. Feet can change in size during the day (later in the day), and with weather temperature changes (smaller during the cold). Size and shape can differ during activity and with age.

Arch supports are used to treat a variety of foot pain. The arch support must be designed to fit your shoes in order to guarantee a comfortable environment. Indeed appropriate shoes and arch supports are known to reduce athletic fatigue in the feet.

An  arch support with a heel cup to cradle the heel provides better stability. This in turn improves balance as your weight is more evenly distributed.

Foot Solutions® offers custom-made and over the counter arch supports. Our in-store specialists would be delighted to help identify which product is best for your complaint.
