What Are Custom Orthotics?

Custom orthotics are medical appliances that help fix imbalances that are occurring in your feet. They look like insoles but do so much more than a regular insole because they are custom made just for you.

A great way to describe orthotics is to liken them to the effect that glasses have on your eyes; they help decrease the amount of pressure and stress on your body by helping your feet return to their optimal alignment.

Custom orthotics help decrease certain movements and help induce other motions so that your feet can get back to homeostasis (balance). By doing this, they help get the best position for your foot in relation to your ankle.

Custom Orthotics help with a variety of injuries and conditions. It is a common misconception that orthotics are used to treat foot pain only, when in actuality orthotics can also help with knee pain as well as lower back pain.

How Do I Get Started?

If you are interested in orthotics, you will first be booked in for an orthotics exam. Your Doctor will take a very thorough history & physical examination to determine if you need orthotics.

If it is the clinical opinion of the Doctor that you do require orthotics, they will then perform a gait analysis to see how you are walking and a biomechanical evaluation to see how your foot is moving.

Once this is done, they will a perfect mold of your feet and along with their recommendations/modifications, send it out to our high quality and top of the line orthotic labs. It can take 1-2 weeks to receive your orthotics after you have completed your assessment.

If there are any conditions that may not be helped with orthotics, you will be referred to our in-house physios, chiropractors, or massage therapists for further analysis.
