Custom Orthotics Ottawa

What Are Custom Orthotics?

Everyone's feet are different. Some are wide, some have high arches, and some individuals have two feet that aren't the same size or shape. No matter how your feet are, orthotics are a great way to help keep your feet, connecting tissues, and ligaments healthy for life.

Orthotics are specially-made shoe inserts constructed from foam casting that takes an imprint of your foot and creates a pair of custom shoe inserts that are perfectly designed for your feet.

How Do Custom Orthotics Help?

Your feet play an integral role in your day-to-day life and overall health. Many issues can begin from the feet or can potentially aggravate issues if you have common foot abnormalities such as an exaggerated arch, or, what is referred to as, "flat feet."

Instead of just merely cushioning your feet from stress, as most over-the-counter orthotics do, customized orthotics are specifically designed to be an effective remedy for a wide variety of foot conditions.

Orthotics are a fantastic treatment option to address various symptoms and injuries.

At Ottawa Physical Rehab Clinic, we'll first do a biomechanical assessment and ask you about your daily activities. This will allow us to tailor your treatment plan and address foot fatigue.

Your custom orthopedic shoes will compliment your foot structure and follow-up appointments with gait analysis assessment will ensure that foot pain does not return.


Some of the goals your therapist may have for orthotic treatment include:


1. Correcting foot deformities.

2. Helping the foot or ankle function better.

3. Providing support to the ankle.

4. Reducing the risks of further injuries.
