Kintec Chilliwack Is Now Open!

Kintec Chilliwack Is Now Open!

We are excited to announce that Kintec Chilliwack is now open! Our newest full-size store will provide the same great products and Kintec experience we’re known for.

Meet Kintec Chilliwack’s manager Chelsea: A certified pedorthist, soccer player, and lifelong Chilliwack resident with a passion for helping others.

What was life like before coming to Kintec?

I grew up playing soccer in Chilliwack, and I spent a lot of time in cleats. With that, came a lot of foot pain. Before I came to Kintec, I had plantar fasciitis, stress fractures … all sorts of injuries.

When I came into Kintec and finally got a pair of orthotics, all that changed.

How was your first experience as a Kintec customer?

When I came into Kintec, I think I was about 15 years old, so I came with my mom. I met with a pedorthist, and they went through my gait, watched me run, took a look at my soccer cleats and decided what I needed.

After that, I came and picked up the orthotics, and they didn’t take that long to get used to. Within a couple of weeks, most of my pain was gone.

How has your perspective changed about foot and body health?

Since becoming a pedorthist, I’ve really realized how important it is to treat the whole body. So as a pedorthist, of course, I’m mainly doing orthotics and footwear.

But the multi-disciplinary approach, that I think the medical community in Chilliwack appreciates, is definitely what I’m excited to be a part of – treating the whole body and getting the right outcome.

What’s your favourite part of the job?

My favourite part of my job is treating people who I can relate to, and not only just athletes but kind of all demographics. Just relating to the pain they’re in, and empathizing with them, having that conversation and giving them hope.

What excites you most about the new Kintec store in Chilliwack?

I’m so excited to open this store in Chilliwack! I’ve worked at Kintec for seven years, and all seven years, I’ve been bugging them to get this store going.

So I’m really excited to just work with the community and really make a mark!

    Are the Sole brand footwear that I purchased at you store water friendly? I’m wanting to wash them. I don’t know the model but perhaps you will find the info in your system.

      Hey there, thank you for your question! While we wouldn’t necessarily recommend machine washing them, the non-cork sandals are water-friendly and can be worn around water or hand-washed. The cork Sole sandals, on the other hand, aren’t quite as water-friendly. We hope this helps!

      Hi Margot – We do carry shoes that have extra depth and/or width, but I’d suggest taking advantage of our new 15-minute Phone Consultation ( to discuss your specific requirements and make sure we line up the right product for you. Cheers!

    I work all day on a concrete floor in steel toe shoes, as a cabinetry painter/finisher. My feet are so sore to walk on or stand on, let alone try to do foot rotations, if I sit after work for 5 mins and get up, I’m in excruciating pain taking tiny foot steps and tops of feet feel broken and heel on right feels like I have heels splints. Do you have a Dr on site who can x-ray and properly diagnose my problem? Thanks

      Hello Naomi, Thank you for sharing your concerns about your feet – we can certainly appreciate how painful spending prolonged periods of time on your feet can be. We do not have a physician at our locations to diagnose, but we do have a lot of experience helping people in your situation and you do not require a referral for one of our pedorthists to help. In fact, our Industrial orthotic design is developed with additional cushion and support to even distribute pressure and reduce strain on your arch throughout your workday. Contact us at :
