For the 5th year, Soles in Motion supported the Walk to Fight Arthritis as Bronze Sponsor. Joining us on event day, they spoke to participants about providing the best solutions to pain and how to improve lifestyle, mobility and activity through custom and off-the-shelf orthopedic bracing, custom foot orthotics, diabetic foot care, custom fitting of comfort and athletic footwear and compression therapy services.
Currently, 1 in 10 Canadians are affected by osteoarthritis, the most prevalent form of arthritis, and that number continues to grow. In fact, within 20 years, someone will be diagnosed with OA every 60 seconds.
“We believe education and solutions to delay future damage and keep active is extremely important,” explains Jennifer Estabrooks, Co-Owner and General Manager at Soles in Motion. “It’s incredibly important to take control of osteoarthritis, and keep your joints healthy.”
In addition to their support at the Walk to Fight Arthritis to fund research, support, advocacy and programs for Canadians living with arthritis, Soles in Motion is offering a no-risk 30 day trial on the Osteoarthritis Unloader Knee Brace. By unloading the affected compartment of the knee, the unloader brace offers people with knee OA a safe, proven, low risk treatment that may reduce pain and improve mobility.
“Our OA Knee Braces are scientifically and clinically proven to reduce pain and improve mobility, are adjustable to the patients’ symptoms and progression of OA, are custom made for comfort and performance and designed for all levels of activity including sports and daily activity,” explains Estabrooks.
If you are interested in taking part in a trial, or would like more information on the Osteoarthritis Unloader Knee Brace, call Soles in Motion at 902-468-7911.
