Custom Orthotics Mississauga
What are Custom-Made Orthotics?
Orthotics are designed to relieve foot pain caused by abnormal gait or defects in feet. Custom Orthotics are best, as they are crafted specific to your individual needs. The overall goal is to provide support, stability, cushioning and alignment necessary to keep the feet and lower body comfortable, healthy and pain-free.
Orthotics can correct an abnormal, or irregular, walking pattern. They perform functions that make standing, walking, and running more comfortable and efficient by altering the angles at which the foot strikes a walking or running surface. Orthotics can also be made to provide cushioning to increase shock absorption and provide relief to prominent bones or sensitive areas. By supporting the foot, pain may also be relieved in the knees, hips or lower back. Orthotics can also be made to fit most types of shoes styles or sneakers.
Chiropodists at our Mississauga Foot Clinic firmly believe that almost anyone can achieve some benefit from an orthotic.

Orthotics at our Mississauga Foot Clinics
Custom foot orthotics will be made by either making a foot impression using cast material or using the latest 3D laser scanning technique, as we have both techniques available at our Mississauga Foot Clinic. The impressions taken would duplicate any misalignments or defects present in the foot. The Chiropodists will then place the finished orthotics in the shoes to help keep the feet in proper alignment.
