The 26 bones, 30 joints, and five groups of muscles work together with each step to provide balance, mobility, and support. These foot components sometimes need a little help, and just as glasses help your eyes, orthotics can help your feet function at their peak performance.
Also like glasses, these devices should be custom-made for your unique case. Our chiropodists assess your feet and how you walk to best determine the right device for you. We take a 3D Digital Mold of your feet, which is sent to the International Orthotic Lab in Alberta or Gateway Orthotics Inc. in Mississauga. With the custom design from your chiropodist and the digital mold, the labs will custom-make the orthotics.
Back in the clinic two weeks later, we fit the orthotics into your shoes. Orthotics take some time to break in, so included in the cost of your orthotics is a follow-up appointment to ensure you have the best devices for your feet.
