Custom orthotics are prescribed as the result of an assessment from a Certified Pedorthist or Podiatrist that includes a biomechanical and gait analysis, proper foot joint range of motion testing, soft tissue/muscle testing, as well as a number of additional testing based on your individual condition. At the Arthritis & Injury Care Centre, custom orthotics for the foot and/or feet are part of a therapeutic process. After this assessment, a three-dimensional mold of your feet (or foot) will be taken for the custom foot orthotics. The Certified Pedorthist or Podiatrist will discuss and educate you on the best approach for recovering your injury/disease condition.
Custom orthotics are often the best treatment for chronic foot pain, whether it occurs in the heels, arches, balls of the feet, or even further up the leg. These devices, when inserted into shoes, help cushion, support, and realign feet to reduce painful pressure and improve natural biomechanics without surgery.
The added benefit of choosing the Arthritis & Injury Care Centre for custom orthotics treatment is our inter-professional approach. Our Certified Pedorthists and Podiatrist work closely alongside Brace Specialists, Physiotherapists, Massage Therapists, and other medical professionals to offer all our patients the best care possible. You can purchase custom orthotics at our Halifax, Dartmouth, and Saint John locations.
