Take a break from the old standard, and let HealthView offer a few ways to pamper yourself and your sweetie this Valentine’s Day with gifts that won’t leave you with regret or wilting flowers a week later.

 

  1. Massage Therapy Gift Certificate

Massage Therapy Burlington

If you or your partner are active – you know how tight and tense your muscles can get.  Sometimes a massage is just the perfect solution to ease a tired body and mind.  Not only is it a great way to relax, but it could increase his/her performance in the gym.  If you aren’t as active as you like, a massage by an RMT will help to loosen those muscles and make you feel a thousand times better!   A HealthView gift certificate is the perfect solution for it!  Our Registered Massage Therapists will find the best way to ease those aching muscles!  Why not consider a couples massage?  You could BOTH walk out feeling relaxed and energized.  Call us at 905-634-VIEW to find out how you can get one!

 

 

  1. Fitness Tracker

Massage Therapy Burlington

Now, this is only meant with the best intentions!  For a lot of people, fitness trackers are a good way to monitor your journey and help you understand just how active you are.  They don’t have to be expensive – and can assist you in keeping “track” of your steps, calories burned and even the amount of restful sleep you are getting.

 

  1. A Romantic (But Healthy) Dinner

Massage Therapy BurlingtonConsider something as simple as a nice meal – prepared at home.  Perhaps something a little more special than the usual fare though.  Some nutritionists suggest you go “lean & green” – meaning a meal consisting of a lean protein like salmon or flank steak, coupled with some broccoli, green beans or cauliflower.

 

  1. Couples Yoga Class

Massage Therapy BurlingtonThe couple that stretches together – stays together?  Studies show that yoga can increase your flexibility, strength and cardiovascular function.  It can also improve your mood – which is NEVER a bad thing, especially when the February blues start to set in.

 

  1. Go Ice Skating

Massage Therapy BurlingtonSure it can be cold outside, but there is no better time to find a local skating rink and take part in a great low impact workout together!  Make sure you stretch beforehand, and dress according to the conditions – but its a great opportunity to enjoy the outdoors and each others company.  And afterwards – make sure you grab some hot chocolate with a few extra marshmallows!

Sometimes we tend to think that orthotics are used by just an older population, but the fact is – ALL AGES can benefit from them!

Custom orthotics are different than the ones you typically buy over-the-counter in a store, because they are specifically made for YOUR unique feet.  They are a simple insert that can be placed in your footwear with ease.

 

There are 4 key reasons you should consider getting orthotics:

1. Ongoing Foot Pain

If it hurts to walk, we have a problem.  When serious issues have been ruled out, orthotics can help, by taking the stress off painful areas of your feet.

2. Fallen Arches

Orthotics can’t fix a fallen arch, but they CAN reposition your foot to make it easier to walk and reduce the chance of injury.

3. Standing All Day

If you stand for long periods of time, you need the extra support because your muscles get sore.  Orthotics are a helpful way to give your feet a break.

4. Diabetes

Believe it or not, if you suffer from diabetes you have an increased risk of corns and calluses.  Those ailments hurt your skin and if left untreated, can lead to bigger problems.  Orthotics can ease the pressure on those areas.

If you suffer from some of the following issues, you could certainly benefit from a pair of custom orthotics:

– Flat feet
– Plantar Fasciitis
– Achilles Tendonitis
– Heel spurs
– Shin splints
– Lower back pain
– Leg pain

Custom Foot Orthotics

If you’re ready to give orthotics a try – here’s what happens next!

Don’t worry – it doesn’t hurt!   We examine your feet, legs, hips and lower back to determine if there are any underlying problems.  We then take a computerized scan of your feet to see how you walk.  And finally, we take a foam impression of your feet to make sure the orthotic is tailored to YOU.

Here are some frequently asked questions from our patients:

Will I have to get new footwear?

Orthotics have come a long way since your grandmother’s old shoes. They can be made to fit your tennis or running shoes, dress shoes or even ski boots!

Do they hurt?

There is definitely some adjustment when you get your orthotics, but keep in mind, they are meant to alleviate pain, not cause it.  Custom orthotics may change the posture of your foot (and that’s a good thing) but you may need a week or two to break them in.

How long do they last?

The lifespan of othotics can vary from patient to patient.  It shouldn’t be measured on how long the material lasts, but on how long it provides the comfort and support you need.  If your foot and lower body pain return, it’s probably a good idea to see your practitioner to have them reassessed.

Are they covered by my benefit plan?

A lot of people ask us if orthotics are covered by their benefit plans – YES – most extended health plans offer some form of full or partial coverage.  We encourage our patients to check with their providers to find our the specifics of their plan.

How soon can I get an appointment?

If you call us at 905-634-8439, we can get you in as soon as possible!   It typically takes about a week to 10 days to make your custom orthotics.  We have you come back when they are ready, so we can properly fit them and make sure you are comfortable with them.

We typically take thousands of steps each day.  Those steps shouldn’t be painful.  You’ll be pleasantly surprised how orthotics can make a real difference for you!
