When appropriate, our chiropractors may suggest and fit you for custom orthotics for your specific issue. Unlike over-the-counter inserts, custom orthotics are designed for your unique foot and health challenges. They will give you the stability you need to reduce stress and strain on your feet and joints from the ground up. While orthotics can be used for issues in the feet, such as bunions or plantar fasciitis, they can also be used to assist in the treatment in leg pain and low back pain.
Our chiropractors are trained to determine if you require an orthotic device. If there is a need for orthotics, our chiropractors will assess your foot structure and function, take a 3-D scan of your feet, an design an orthotic specific to your needs.

Occupational therapists, or OTs, help people get back to doing what they want to do, need to do, and are expected to do.
Occupations are anything that occupy your time. This means that they can help you with anything ranging from brushing your teeth to returning to school or sport. Given this broad scope of practice, OTs often pick specific domains in which to practice. Emily will be working with concussion, oncology, and chronic pain patients in particular. She will also be able to help with more general concerns such as sleep, posture, ergonomics, and recommending adaptive equipment.
