Going the Extra Mile
TLM Foot-Knee-Back-Arm Orthotics Center specialises in treating foot, knee, back and arm pain that arises due to issues relating to the musculoskeletal system.
Over the last 20 years, TLM has helped more than 20,000 patients ranging from 2 to 89 years of age by recommending its unique insoles and footwear that may aid full recovery.
TLM’s footwear and insoles are specially designed by an orthotist to realign shifted joints, which could lead to better posture in the long run.
An orthotist cares for patients who require specialised mechanical devices, or orthoses, to support weakened or abnormal joints and limbs. Orthoses enable the body to move more easily, and can prevent or reduce pain. No medication, injections and surgery are required. Some forms of orthotic treatment include a brace, splint, and orthotic insoles or shoes.
Customised treatment TLM tailors an exclusive treatment plan based on each patient’s condition and body structure, and incorporates its unique design and the latest technology when making shoes and orthoses. It also recommends other medical braces for treatment when necessary.
If a patient feels comfortable after wearing a medical brace, splint or orthotic insoles or shoes for about 20 to 30 minutes, and an improvement in body structure and posture is noted, the treatment is deemed to be effective.
For some adults especially those aged above 40 years, treatment alters their foot structure, resulting in an increase or decrease in foot size — an indication of positive results.
Prevention is key
TLM also helps patients to prevent discomfort, so they may improve their quality of life.
It offers a wide range of trendy footwear that delivers a painless and comfortable walking experience.
With more than 20 years of study, research and clinical practice, it is no wonder that TLM has clinched a multitude of awards. Some of its awards received from 2015 to 2017 include the Singapore Consumers’ Choice award, Singapore Enterprise Medal of Honour, Singapore Preferred Brand, Singapore Service Honouree, Singapore Industry Icon award, and Promising SME 500-Industry Star award.
