Do you have foot pain? Or pain in your back, hips, or legs with walking or running?
Custom orthotics may help.
Foot "orthotics" are insoles you insert into your shoe or runner. They are designed to support the 26 bones, 33 joints and more than 100 muscles, tendons and ligaments that make up your foot.
To determine whether orthotics are right for you, our physiotherapists will evaluate your walking or running, assess your feet, and listen carefully to your medical history. They'll be watching for how you carry your weight through your joints, and assess whether this could be causing biomechanical strain that can be alleviated with orthotics.
Custom orthotics can help treat and prevent many conditions, including plantar fasciitis and arthritis. They are an option for all ages, even children. For children, we offer a program for updating orthotics as the child grows.
To create your custom orthotics, we make a cast of your feet and work closely with Paris Orthotics - a prescription foot orthotic laboratory in Vancouver BC. Paris Orthotics constructs the inserts custom to your feet, based on the casting we create.
We can provide many different materials for your orthotics, to suit your sport, age, activity level and your unique foot condition.
