Custom Orthotics and How They can Change your Life!

Updated: May 24

Custom Orthotis can change your life

The feet are one of the essential parts of the body that carry you from one place to another. However, constant, nagging foot pain that sometimes extends to the lower back, hips, and knees is a concern for many people. It may be due to some irregularities or abnormalities in the structure of the bones. One of the ways to alleviate these types of pain is by using custom orthotics.

What exactly is custom orthotics?

Custom orthotics are not just any inserts. They are uniquely tailored to your feet, adjusting to their contours with precision, offering a personalized solution to your pain. 

Custom orthotics stand out for their ability to reduce foot joint pain and address toe and arch deformities. They are not just any inserts, but products of cutting-edge technology designed to cater to your unique needs. This uniqueness is what makes them a game-changer in improving your quality of life.

What Role does Custom Orthotics play in changing your life?

Any persistent foot pain can be a constant source of discomfort, hindering your daily activities. In such situations, custom orthotics can truly be a source of relief, offering a much-needed respite. 

Walking with ease with custom orthotics

Custom Orthotics can play a transformative role in your life, offering the following benefits:

  • One of The key benefits of custom orthotics is their role in maintaining body balance. This is particularly beneficial for those with high foot arches, as unbalanced feet can stress the body's joints. Custom orthotics step in to neutralize this disparity, bringing the foot to a stable position and effectively solving the problem.

  • Providing the support your foot needs at all times—26 bones and close to 100 muscles support the feet. Since the feet form the foundation, custom orthotics care for the three anatomical arches. They ensure that your foot has all the support that it needs.

  • Improve the athleticism of a person - As an athlete, custom orthotics can improve your performance and reduce the chances of injury because they not only enhance the strength of the body but also refine the sense of balance and proprioception of the body.

  • Relieving excessive body pain - Foot irregularities can result in pain in the whole body, especially in the lower back and hip areas. Custom orthotics can support the base of the foot so that the body's foundation becomes solid, relieving excessive pain.

  • Correcting the condition of flat feet—A flat foot can be a significant reason for unequal stress distribution around the body. It can cause the body to be misaligned and put a lot of pressure on it. Custom orthotics can correct this condition and, consequently, all its associated issues.

Healthy feet are Happy Feet

Foot and lower back pain can cause general discomfort. However, custom orthotics can be used judiciously to address these issues and lead a happy, balanced, and pain-free life.

Chiropodists and Podiatrists are the only regulated health professionals in Ontario with a legislated scope of practice for orthotic provision. This ensures that anyone who receives orthotic management by a Chiropodist or Podiatrist can be assured that they are receiving thorough, competent and safe care.
