Custom Orthotics

A custom orthotic is an orthopedic device designed to treat or adjust various biomechanical foot disorders. They look like insoles but are custom-tailored medical appliances crafted 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. 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. Additionally, specific modifications such as heel lifts, heel cushions, heel spur pad, etc. can be built directly into the insoles to help treat various foot imbalances. 

 

At our clinic, we work with an industry veteran Canadian company which uses the innovative laser 3D scanning technology and a detailed, highly crafted manufacturing process to produce comfortable and functionally effective custom orthotics to fit any lifestyle.

Who Should Use Custom Made Orthotics?

Custom made orthotics are used to correct poor foot mechanics, which may present as one or more of the following:

  • Localized foot pain

  • Arch/heel pain

  • Bunions, hammertoes

  • Heel spur

  • Leg/knee pain

  • Hip or back pain - even neck pain

  • One side of the sole of your shoe wears out faster than the other

  • Your toes are not straight

  • Your feet point inward or excessively outward when you walk

  • You frequently sprain your ankle

 

In addition to treating active symptoms, custom made orthotics can be used to prevent future foot problems. For example, flat feet or very high arches can be asymptomatic for years; however, they can silently generate abnormal biomechanical stresses and over time weakens the muscles, ligaments, and joints of the feet. Furthermore, since our musculoskeletal system is a kinetic chain, having proper support at the base can help to promote better spinal alignment and a more balanced posture. 

Custom Orthotic Sandals

Did you know that you spend most of your time out of your normal shoes without orthotics? Many people tend to wear regular slippers or worse yet unsupported flip-flops when they are at home, during the summer or on vacation. Give your feet a break with a comfortable pair of custom sandals with built-in orthotics and personal style. 

 

How it works?

  1. 3D scanning of your foot to ensure perfect sizing. No more frustration about being in between sizes or difficulty with finding narrow or wide width.

  2. Choose your style of sandals. Select materials and colours for the uppers, interlinings, footbed and the outsole of your footwear.

  3. After the fitting and designing process, your sandals wills be hand made by shoemaker specialists in Portugal using high-quality materials and 'ecological' leathers.

  4. The completed footwear will then be sent back to Canada where it will be combined with the custom insoles hand crafted by our Canadian Orthotic company.
