A foot orthotic is a device that can be discretely inserted into a shoe to support, align, or accommodate foot deformities or lower extremity mechanics. Custom-made foot orthotics are corrective supportive devices that are custom-made to correct your specific imbalance and biomechanical misalignment (e.g. high arch or flat feet). Orthotics may also assist in relieving stress on the knees, hips and back. They are directly casted from your feet and manufactured in a specialized lab based on your foot impression and the specifications outlines by your chiropractor to address key structural problems.
Orthotics can be use for treatment of a variety of lower extremity conditions. Orthotics can relieve pain, improve skeletal alignment or improve the function of your foot and lower limbs.
Orthotics can also improve athletic and occupational performance by realigning poor alignment and reducing excess strain on the feet and legs.
At ARC Health & Wellness, your chiropractor will assess your gait statically and dynamically. Depending on your assessment, the North York orthotics will be modified and customized for your foot and specific needs. It will be adjusted in our lab to our specifications.
