At Shift Orthotics & Footwear, we truly believe that an active, healthy life starts with - you guessed it! - your foot comfort and health.
We all know the old song:
Your foot bone’s connected to your heel bone,
Your heel bone’s connected to your ankle bone,
Your ankle bone’s connected to your leg bone...
And so on, through the knees, thighs, hips, back, and more.
The anatomy may be a little on the simplistic side, but it’s true! Your feet are the foundation for the rest of you. Just as we don’t build a house on a shaky foundation - because our floors will sag, walls will crack, and we’ll have problems all the way up - issues with your feet can cause not just foot pain but pain all the way up.
It works the other way around, too. Medical conditions above the feet may cause serious foot pain. Try asking someone who is 7 months pregnant how their feet feel! Some illnesses can also cause terrible foot pain leading to severe limitations in functional ability, like arthritis and diabetes.
The great news? We can help.
Our mission at Shift is to promote healthy, active living from the ground up. You are unique, and your feet are too. So we always take a patient-centred and evidence-based approach to your foot comfort and health. Our goal, above all else, is to help your feet to feel and function better so that you can keep up with or get back to the things that matter to you.
from the ground up.
