Leg Pain

Wearing orthotic footwear, insoles and braces can help manage leg pain and discomfort

As experts in orthotics, we understand the impact leg pain can have on your daily life. It’s more than just discomfort; it can prevent us from doing the things we love and hinder our ability to work effectively.

That’s why seeking professional help is essential to overcoming these issues.  Don’t let leg pain slow you down – take the first step towards solving the problem and regaining your quality of life.

Leg pain can be a direct result of wear and tear, overuse, or injuries to joints or bones, or muscles, ligaments, tendons or other soft tissues. Some leg pain can be traced to problems in your lower spine.

Our expert assessments are supported by a streamlined treatment plan, making it easy for you to regain your health and active lifestyle with minimal disruption.
