Start Your Year Strong and Make Health a Habit

Blog by Vancouver Orthotics, Hycroft Medical Building (114-3195 Granville St @ 16th Ave) | January 12th, 2021

This January, Vancouver Orthotics owner and ‘Friendly Neighborhood Chiropractor’, Dr. Michael Horowitz encourages being open to possibilities with new habits – health habits to fuel your new year ahead.  

Best wishes for a happy and healthy new start after an incredibly challenging past pandemic year. It’s been a time of change and we’ve come to see things in a new way – including a new plan for our health.  Why not start at the foundation?  Your feet.  

Here are some tips to get started: 

  1. 1. Keep moving 

Stay active!  Moving your body and staying active is not only good for your body, it’s good for your brain too.  

Why not try something new?  There’s a lot you can do within the constraints of social distancing. Make good decisions as you put healthy ‘get up’ and go moves into your day, every day inside and outdoors for you.    


  1. 2. Use your Extended Health Benefits  

If your annual slate of Extended Health Benefits reset in January, why not activate them in your plan to ‘make health a habit’?  

Take action and choose a health habit to take care of yourself and keep moving with services such as massage, physiotherapy, and chiropractic care. 

And, since your feet are at your foundation for health, good posture and alignment – it’s wise to lavish some healthy habit love on them.  

Custom orthotics at Vancouver Orthotics help you take your best steps forward, wherever and whenever you choose to move.  


  1. 3. Plan for great posture, balance, stability & shock-absorption in every step 

 At Vancouver Orthotics, your best steps into health start with a patient consultation that includes: 

  • A proper foot examination 

  • Electronic Gait Analysis & 3D Digital Foot Scan  

  • A game plan, or a set of actions to help alleviate aches and pains
