Dr. Snowsell has a special interest in custom made foot orthotics in Kelowna, and minor foot surgery such as Plantar warts and ingrown toe nails. Custom foot orthotics can eliminate foot pain, heel pain, and arch pain.
Common foot problems that custom made orthotics can help include:
o Plantar fasciitis
o Heel spurs
o Abnormal foot pronation and supination
o Pressure and pain in the balls of feet
o Painful calluses
o Diabetic foot ulcers
Orthotics can also be beneficial for:
o Low back pain
o Hip pain
o Knee pain
These types of pain can also be attributed to foot mechanics.
If the mechanics of the foot are treated early, such as in childhood, this can prevent hereditary biomechanical problems later on in life, like bunions and hammertoes and certain deformities.
