What Is A Custom Made Orthotic?

A custom made orthotic is a device designed to align the foot and ankle into the most anatomically efficient position. They look like insoles, but are biomechanical medical appliances that are custom made to correct your specific foot imbalance. Custom orthotics work on your feet much like glasses work on your eyes – they reduce stress and strain on your body by bringing your feet back into proper alignment. The plastic body of the custom orthotic helps to re-align the foot by redirecting and reducing certain motion that takes place during the gait cycle. Custom orthotics fit into your shoes as comfortably as an insole – and they have the advantage of having been made from precise imprints of your feet.

Who Would Benefit from Custom Made Orthotics?

Individuals who may benefit from foot orthotics include people who stand or walk on hard surfaces for considerable amounts of time each day, who participate regularly in high-impact sports, have had previous foot or leg injuries, or experience joint pain when walking, running, or standing. Other people who have benefited from our products include:

Foot pain sufferers:
In their lifetime, over 75% of North Americans will experience foot problems of varying degrees, some of which can be painful and disabling. In most cases, foot orthotics can be employed to help alleviate and even correct the condition.

Knee and back pain sufferers:
Many people have chronic, lingering pain in their knees, hips and low back that has not responded to traditional treatment. If you are in this group, there may be a connection between the pain you are experiencing and the way your feet function. If your pain is due to your foot mechanics, orthotics can be a very effective way to relieve your symptoms.

Athletes and runners:
In an effort to enhance physical performance, many athletes rely on custom-made orthotics to keep the foot in its most efficient alignment, allowing the bones, muscles, tendons, and ligaments to work at 100% efficiency, prevent injury, relieve pain and increase efficiency.

Those who want maximum comfort:
In response to the rigorous demands on their feet, many individuals employ custom-made orthotics in their shoes and sneakers to help absorb and distribute shock while providing relief from daily stress and injury.

How Do I Get My Own Custom Orthotics?

If you are interested in having an assessment done we encourage you to call our office to book an appointment with our Pedorthist. Once the mold is taken of your feet, and we have a proper prescription we will be able to place the order. Because the orthotics are custom made, they do take a few weeks to be processed.
