What are Custom Orthotics?

Custom Orthotics are a combination of materials that are Custom fit to the unique shape and function of your foot. We design and create Custom Foot Orthotics by taking an individual cast impression of your feet. As a result, your orthotics will provide the unique and individualized support that your feet require.

All too often, injuries of the spine, pelvis, and lower limbs can be traced to a lack of proper foot support. Your feet support the weight of everything above them, similar to the foundation of a house. In addition to support, Custom Foot Orthotics provide the improved alignment that your body requires. As a result of improved alignment we see a decrease in pain in your feet, knees and back. On the other hand, if your feet do not have adequate support it can lead to injuries and discomfort. 

At our Oakville Clinic, we have access to, and use a variety of modifications and material choices.  As Chiropractors, we make selections based on your needs to provide you with the best possible fit. Furthermore, each pair of Custom Orthotics are designed with both your foot and activities in mind and help provide relief for what ails you. We can design your Custom Orthotics for both professional and athletic footwear.
