Custom Orthotics in Hamilton

While some might believe prescribing orthotics is something only podiatrists do, we believe it is a perfect fit with chiropractic care. Having in-depth knowledge of biomechanics plays an essential role in chiropractic care, and in assessment of the foot for issues which might require orthotics.

All the body’s weight is distributed through our feet. Uneven distribution can affect the way we walk and stand. Without correction, a misalignment of the spine may occur, causing pain and loss of function.

Custom orthotics may help correct the issue. Studying the structures of your foot, and how the foot moves, may help determine whether there’s a problem that needs to be addressed.

What Are Custom Orthotics?

Orthotics are biomechanical devices custom-made to correct your specific foot imbalance. The three-dimensional inserts are placed in the shoe to alter the structure of the foot and walk. Made from precise images of your feet, they are designed to support and comfort the foot based on your unique structure and pathology.

  • Flat feet

Why Orthotics?

Sometimes, foot issues are due to an injury or heredity. Excess weight gain, walking or standing on hard pavement for long periods of time, shoes without the proper support—all are factors that might influence balance and posture.

No two patients are the same; foot structure, arch height and walking form vary with the individual. Only an orthotic unique to your foot is able to correct your situation. Custom orthotics help restore the normal balance and alignment of your body by gently correcting foot abnormalities.

Over time, you should begin to feel relief from the consistent pain. Correcting your foot biomechanics allows you to walk, run, jump and move freely without pain or dysfunction.
