Wellness Products that Can Improve Your Daily Function

Wellness ProductsWe see lots of patients who want a remedy for pain or discomfort without talking to a doctor about surgery. Here some basic wellness products we offer that may help you enjoy your favourite outdoor activities or ease your day-to-day discomfort:

  • Orthotics – Orthotics are custom-made just for you from an impression of your foot. We’ve all seen pre-cut shoe inserts at stores, but an orthotic is made of quality materials. These inserts often assist in the reduction of back, hip, foot, and leg pain, as well as relieving discomfort due to callouses or corns.
  • Compression materials – These wellness products come in all forms, including shorts, socks, elbow sleeves, wrist bands and many more. Made of a special hosiery material, compression products aid in the prevention of muscle fatigue and provide relief for some sports-related injuries and vein disorders.
  • Orthopedic shoes – Orthopedic shoes are an excellent investment if you have foot or joint pain. They not only provide arch support, but also assist in improved posture and a release of pressure on the feet when walking or running. If you have comfortable feet there is an increased chance the rest of your body will also be more comfortable!
  • Braces – Whether it’s for your ankle, your wrist or your elbow, braces are designed to stabilize an affected area and prevent awkward movements. Braces are an easy wellness product to find in most stores and may be a simple solution if you need a temporary fix for discomfort or pain.

There are many ways to help your body heal and regain better stability without turning to surgery or medication. The human body is amazing in its ability to heal itself if we just let it, and these wellness products can be used as a viable way to speed up the natural healing process.
