Custom Knee Braces
Helping with prevention, protection and healing, DonJoy bracing delivers complete confidence to those who wear them. DonJoy braces are strong but light-weight, making them the best functional braces for both high-impact sports and activities of daily living. Ask Drs. Spencer-Yap and Macpherson about custom-built knee braces for Osteoarthritis, ACL (or PCL/MCL/LCL) tears, or surgery (pre & post). http://www.djoglobal.com/products/donjoy/
Custom Braces and Custom Foot orthotics are often covered* under your Extended Health Benefits plan (*may require a prescription from your physician).
Custom Foot Orthotics
Orthotics are medical devices that, when inserted into a shoe, correct an abnormal or irregular walking pattern. Sometimes called arch supports, orthotics allow people to stand, walk and run more efficiently and comfortably. Foot orthotics are prescribed to fit an individual's unique foot structure, and when custom-made can normally correct a wide range of symptoms and conditions, from overpronation to chronic foot pain, shin splints and plantar fascitis.
To get orthotics: book an appointment with a Chiropractor here at the ProActive Centre. Check with your insurance plan to see if they require a Doctor’s note (our Medical Doctor on staff is able to write one if you are unable to receive one through your Physician). To make your shoe selection, go ahead of time to orthoticshoes.ca & select from the live inventory. Bring your shoe selection(s) (we recommend 2 choices) and your MD prescription (if required) in to your orthotics examination appointment. Payment is due on your pick-up/fitting appointment date. Average time to receive your orthotics is 3 weeks (dependent on time of year).
