Custom foot orthotics are used to treat a variety of orthopedic conditions including heel pain, knee pain, leg length discrepancies and low back pain.
Orthotics can also:
- Alleviate painful or debilitating conditions of the lower limb
- Treat orthopedic injuries
- Accommodate foot deformities
- Re-align anatomical structures
- Redistribute external and internal forces
- Improve balance / control of biomechanical function
Orthotics are also prescribed for arthritis and diabetes. Our clinicians can have custom casted insoles fabricated for your specific foot type. Orthotics fit into your shoes to improve weight-bearing mechanics and the comfort of your feet and lower extremities.
Most extended health care insurance plans cover custom foot orthotics. Please check your insurance plan for this information.
Your feet have a direct impact on the rest of your body. When a problem develops in your body, a change in the way you walk will cause a chain reaction of adjustments in your posture and walking mechanics. These changes can put stress on your joints higher up in the body and can lead to more serious problems.
At Optimal Recovery Physiotherapy Clinic we can help you rebalance your feet, reduce your pain and discomfort through prescription of the proper custom made orthotics.
We use the TOG gait Scan to assess and make custom orthotics. The TOG GaitScan™ is an innovative diagnostic tool and digital casting device that allows practitioners to analyze patient biomechanics and order custom orthotic products.
With 4096 sensors and a scan rate of 300 frames per second, TOG GaitScan™ is the best dynamic spanning system.
