Why orthotics?

Orthotics are medical custom inserts that help address your foot pain. Depending on the location of the pain, the orthotic is customized to alleviate the symptoms you are having. Orthotics are specifically designed bio-mechanical aids that are customized to your feet in order to correct specific foot imbalances. They are generally made of a semi-rigid polypropylene shell and are designed to alleviate any foot related pain and discomfort. Orthotics may also assist in relieving stresses on the knees, hips and back. Orthotics are also customized and designed to prevent any future foot problems/or abnormalities. Our Chiropodist will specifically assess your gait statically and dynamically. The key to a successful and functioning orthotic is a proper foot assessment.

We are orthotic experts

Chiropodists have three years of post graduate schooling on studying feet and ONLY feet! And that is after a four year undergraduate university degree! Hence, we are regarded as foot and orthotic specialists. By seeing a chiropodist for your orthotics, you will be ensuring you will properly be assessed and casted for the orthotics and your orthotics will be properly manufactured.


Did you know almost all major insurance companies will accept a prescription for orthotics from us and you DO NOT need to get a referral from your family physician? That is because we are the foot and orthotic specialists! If you are inquiring about orthotics at a clinic which requires you to get a prescription from your family doctor, you are probably not seeing a foot specialist!
