Custom Orthotics
in Brampton, Mississauga and Toronto

Foot orthotics have been used for decades in the treatment of various different foot problems.

Orthotics are devices used to support or correct musculoskeletal deformities of the foot and are manufactured from 3D cast of the foot. Orthotics allow the muscles, tendons and ligaments of the foot to function at their highest potential, provide biomechanical assistance and restore the proper function to the affected joints and soft tissues.

Common Foot Problems

FAQ:

Q: So, why are orthotics used for so many different conditions?

A: Foot orthotics are primarily used to control foot function and "normalise" foot posture. When foot function is abnormal (eg. excessive foot pronation), then many overuse problems may start to occur. These symptoms of overuse can include pain or discomfort in the feet or legs. Sometimes symptoms will occur in the hip and the lower back or spine. Foot orthotics can help to control foot motion and prevent many of these symptoms.

Q: How long must you wear orthotics?

A: If foot orthotics have been prescribed for you then generally they will be needed indefinitely. This is because foot orthotics are similar to eye glasses or false teeth... they only work while you are wearing them. As you get older foot posture usually improves as long as your orthotics are worn for at least 80% of your weight bearing time. For this reason, orthotics should be checked for accuracy and excessive 'wear and tear' every six months.

Q: How long do orthotics last?

A: Orthotics can last anywhere from six months to 2 years. Once more there are many factors that will affect wear and tear which is why regular reviews for accuracy are so important. Orthotics, just like shoes, do wear out and do need replacing from time to time.

Q: At what age should you commence using foot orthotics?

A: Foot orthotics may be used in children as young as three years of age, however, this is rarely necessary. Most children have relatively "flat feet" as a normal variant and should develop a normal arch by the age of seven. Children should be assessed as early as possible to ensure normal development occurs. Orthotics are often used as treatment intervention when a child's foot posture is not within its normal range. This intervention frequently helps to eliminate common childhood foot and leg problems including growing pains, aching feet and legs and poor co-ordination.
