What are Orthotics?
Custom Foot Orthotics (CFOs) are prescribed medical devices made by a Canadian Certified Pedorthist after a thorough assessment of the patients’ feet and legs. A 3D scan or cast is taken to ensure the orthotics are truly custom.
They are helpful for a wide range of conditions: pain in the forefoot, arch, heel, ankle, knee, hip and lower back. Our Certified Pedorthists are trained in all of these conditions to bring an informed and WHOLEistic approach to your foot care.
Types of Orthotics?
The type or style of orthotic that is made varies for each individual. There are several factors that dictate which type of orthotic is made, including: foot type, current problems/symptoms, which footwear type the orthotics will be going into, patients’ lifestyle and activity level. Orthotics can be made for athletic footwear, cleats, skates, ski boots, casual shoes, dress shoes, and even high heels.
