How Custom Foot Orthotics Work
When feet are misaligned due to age, injury, or other health issues, standing and walking can cause pain in many areas between the feet and lower hips. Premium custom orthotics provide stability and support at the feet, helping alleviate pain or misalignment up through the legs and into the lower back. Our fully licensed physiotherapists use stationery and walking scans of your feet to see exactly where your feet aren’t providing the support that your body needs. From there, we can customize an orthotic that addresses the misalignments and weak spots of your feet.
