What are Custom-Made Orthotics?

Custom made foot orthotics are individually designed shoe inserts that help to correct structural problems in the feet such as high arches or flat feet. Feet problems often cause pain in the sole, heel, ankles, knees, and sometimes the hips and back. Orthotics and Orthopaedic Shoes are made to control abnormal foot function, re-establish proper weight distribution and improve overall biomechanics. Custom orthotics address the biomechanical cause of the condition. Think of your orthotics like prescription eyeglasses. When used appropriately, they can be extremely effective.

Who needs custom made orthotics?

Anyone with poor foot mechanics may benefit from Orthotics. However, use of inserts are more beneficial in some conditions such as:

  • Localized foot pain, e.g. plantar fasciitis
  • Heel spur & heel pain
  • Bunions, hammer toes
  • Arch/heel pain
  • Leg/knee pain
  • Hip or back pain
  • How do I know if I need custom made orthotics?

    If you are suffering from any discomfort in your feet, knees or lower back, or simply your shoes are wearing out in a weird way, you may need orthotics. Your health care practitioner will assess your overall posture including the way you walk. She/he can prescribe custom orthotics to help correct your specific foot and body imbalance.
