The 30-minute consultation begins with a sit-down and five-minute conversation about the symptoms of the patient’s pain or discomfort, along with a medical history and discussion of significant factors and potential causes. Dr. Michael Horowitz then conducts a foot and alignment examination, as well as a visual gait scan and electronic gait scan using TOG technology. He will also lead patients through a series of biomechanical and orthopaedic tests to determine if custom orthotic inserts are needed. Finally, custom orthotics will be constructed using the data and metrics from the consultation. This Groupon does not include the price of taxes associated with the construction.

Vancouver Orthotics

Dr. Michael Horowitz uses biomechanics—the study of human motion—to come up with solutions for imperfections in the foot. Through an extensive one-on-one consultations and digital technology, the doctor identifies the landscape of each one’s unique shape, including fallen or high arches. Custom orthotics promote healthier distribution of weight and pressure, which in turn can reduce pain in the ankles, knees, hips, and back. Dr. Horowitz can also outfit patients with custom-made orthotics inserts such as heel lifts and heel-spur pads, which help to treat the idiosyncrasies of the foot.
