Orthotics

An orthotic is an insert that fits in the shoe. Custom-made orthotics and proper footwear can help alleviate foot, leg, hip and back pain.
Orthotics can help ease the pain caused by biomechanical problems; by health conditions such as arthritis or diabetes; or by foot conditions such as plantar fasciitis (inflammation/pain in the heel), or metatarsalgia (pain at the ball of the foot).
A custom-made foot orthotic can:
  • Prevent, correct or accommodate foot deformities (e.g. hammer toes, bone spurs, high arches)
  • Support and stabilize the heel
  • Redistribute pressure in the foot
  • Re-align joints in the foot and alleviate stress on the joints
  • Limit excessive motion which can aggravate inflamed joints
  • Provide full contact cushioning to accommodate painful areas of the foot (e.g. inflamed joints caused by arthritis; foot ulcers caused by diabetes)
  • Improve foot function and mobility
