Prescribed, Cast & Dispensed by a Chiropodist!
Custom foot orthotics are medical devices prescribed to alleviate your foot and ankle problems. Custom foot orthotics are designed to realign and improve foot function while correcting abnormal biomechanics. Custom foot orthotics are successfully used in the treatment and prevention of flat feet, heel pain, plantar fasciitis, bunions, Morton's neuroma, Achilles tendonitis and other foot-related disorders. Custom orthotics allow you to stay healthy and active without pain.
Custom foot orthotics are prescribed for everyday use. Custom foot orthotics come in many shapes, sizes, and materials. Custom orthotics can be designed to fit into a variety of shoes, including runners, dress shoes, flats, casual-walking shoes (e.g. VANS, Blundstone). They can even be built into some sandals.
Functional custom orthotics is more than a simple arch support. Functional custom orthotics support and enhance foot function, prevent joint misalignment, relieve stress and fatigue on your muscles, tendons, and ligaments. Functional orthotics are the most frequently prescribed device. They are intended for use when you are suffering from acute or chronic pain in the feet, ankles, knee, hip and back pain. Functional custom orthotics work well in orthopedic shoes (extra depth, width, rigid shank, etc.)
Casual & Dress Orthotics
Casual and dress orthotics are designed to provide maximum control with minimal bulk! The low profile maximizes the number of shoes your orthotics fit into. Casual and dress orthotics are often composed of durable materials such as carbon fibre or graphite. Casual orthotics are most useful for day-to-day use at work or for when you are on your feet for extended periods. Casual orthotics can fit most shoes that have a removable insole. Dress Orthotics are a thinner and lighter version of casual orthotics. They are specifically designed for shoes that have limited space and rarely require you to pull out insoles from your shoes.
Sports custom orthotics provide a perfect blend of support and cushioning for a variety of sports activities. Sports orthotics are comprised of a unique combination of a semi-rigid plastic with supportive cushions in high impact areas like the heel and balls of your feet. Sports orthotics can even be specialized to fit soccer shoes, hockey skates and ski boots. We are excited to introduce the new PERFORMANCE Rx orthotics. These specialty shells allow you to design sports orthotics with minimal bulk.
Specialty orthotics are prescribed for specific population groups. These orthotics help to absorb shock, increase balance, and alleviate pressure from the sore spots on your feet. Specialty orthotics are used for people that suffer from peripheral neuropathy, arthritis and highly callused feet. Specialty orthotics are designed with soft, cushioned materials so that they are gentle enough to be worn against the sole of highly sensitive feet.
