Custom Fit Orthotics
CUSTOM FIT ORTHOTICS ASSESSMENT & CASTING
An orthotic is a custom-made insole used to support, align, prevent or correct deformities of the foot, or to improve the function of your foot. Our trained physiotherapists have extensive knowledge in gait analysis and biomechanics of the lower extremity and will assess to determine if orthotics are right for you. After evaluation and fitting, the physiotherapist will cast your feet to prepare a custom designed orthotic.
The process from casting to manufacturing may take a few weeks. Wearing orthotics can take 2 – 3 weeks to adjust to and may need to be modified for a satisfactory fit. The orthotics that we use can be made to fit different types of shoes including dress shoes, heels, running shoes and work boots. We take the time to ensure your new orthotics fit your everyday life. Your feet change so after 2 – 4 years the orthotics may have to be replaced or recovered.
Orthotics are used to control foot pain, ankle and knee symptoms and occasionally, hip and back pain. Our therapists can work with you through your physiotherapy treatment plan to see where the issues and symptoms accompany the need for your custom orthotics.
