A foot orthotic is a medically prescribed, custom-made device that can be inserted in the footwear to support and improve the foot function and to prevent or accommodate any foot distortion.
Foot orthotics are used to address a wide range of musculoskeletal issues that can range from just mild discomfort to severe pains such as: flat feet, high arched feet, planter fasciitis, Tendonitis, Neuroma, diabetic foot, shin splints, knee pains, hip and lower back pains.
The main idea behind foot orthotic is that it provides support for the foot tendons and ligaments which in turn will help with adjusting the posture in standing, walking and running, thus preventing further damage to the foot structures as well as the knees, hips and back.
Foot orthotics are covered with most of EHC plans.
An assessment from our Physiotherapist or Chiropractor will tell if you need a foot orthotic to help with your problems. A custom made orthotic will be designed to suit your specific needs and to meet your specific daily activity needs.
