walking and foot painHow Strong Is Your Foundation?

In a building, if you have a wonky, weak, unstable or a crooked foundation, you are far more likely to get cracks in the walls, the roof and the chimney! In your body your feet play a critical role in shock absorption, alignment and your overall health. Faulty foot biomechanics may lead to foot pain, knee pain, back pain and more.

We Have Your Solutions to Foot Pain

When foot pain strikes, it can range from simply annoying to a tremendous ache that leaves you on the sidelines. At Body 4 Life Healthcare, Roger Reid (Doctor of Chiropractic) has extensive training in the biomechanics of the feet, making him a knowledgeable provider when it comes to addressing and resolving foot-related pain.

For years, he’s helped people just like yourself feel better and heal better, making foot pain a thing of the past. You can find the relief and solutions you need with us.


At our practice, we see patients of all walks of life who come to us with various degrees of foot pain and injury. Sometimes, foot pain begins in the foot while other times it’s a result of a problem elsewhere—often originating in the knee, hips or even back.

The common causes of foot pain might include the following:

  • Bone spurs
  • Bunions
  • Ligament sprain
  • Plantar fasciitis

  • Shoe induced pain
  • Strained muscles
  • And much more
  • Tendinopathy (Achilles, posterior tibialis, anterior tibialis, peroneus, etc.)

Did you know that there are 26 bones in each of your feet? With such complexity, you need a practitioner with a deep understanding of your foot biomechanics. Our chiropractor has years of experience in determining the cause of your foot pain. He’ll use the appropriate testing to determine what we can do for you.

After prescribing the right treatment, we will work with you on personalised exercise recommendations to strengthen the problem area.

Roger prides himself on offering advanced scanning technology that allows us to precisely determine the cause of your foot pain and therefore craft a custom care plan to resolve it for you. He will give you the chance to ask any questions you may have—we encourage you to become an active partner in your care.

A course of care for foot pain will be different for everyone, but may involve the following:

  • Custom orthotics
  • Specific and focused adjustments to the foot bones or spinal bones
  • Recommended stretches and exercises
  • Shoe recommendations

To determine the most appropriate course of treatment for your foot pain, we must first determine the cause of your pain. We do so with the use of The Orthotic Group’s GaitScan™ system. Though you may not end up needing orthotics, this diagnostic tool can help us figure out how best to help you. It has more than 4000 sensors that will analyse you as you walk.

From the information we get combined with your history and a comprehensive physical examination, we will give you a diagnosis for your problem. Then, we can determine the treatment that will work for you, which could include chiropractic, prescription orthotics or a combination of both.
