Taking a Step in the Right Direction: Custom Foot Orthotics

Why do my feet matter?

Did you know that more than 75% of the population will experience foot problems in their lifetime?
Your feet are the foundation and support structures to your body, carrying the weight of everything above. Small imbalances in your feet can cause a series of changes in your body's posture. These changes can affect normal movement patterns and increase stress on joints, including your ankles, knees, hips, and spine.

What are custom foot orthotics?

Custom foot orthotics are customized insoles that correct specific foot imbalances and poor foot biomechanics. They fit comfortably into your shoes and assist in restoring normal movement patterns. Over time, they provide relief from pain and fatigue, allowing you to return to and enjoy daily activities again.

What should I do?

Come in and talk with one of our physiotherapists about the symptoms you are experiencing. Our therapists are trained to examine and analyze your gait. They will then discuss with you whether your feet are contributing to your problems and prescribe you custom foot orthotics if appropriate.
