Custom Orthotics in Ottawa

teal tennis shoe bottomsDid you know that you have approximately 26 bones, 33 joints, and more than 100 muscles, ligaments, and tendons in one foot? Our feet are a crucial foundation of our body, and their proper functioning is vital for overall joint health and performance. Think about it: your feet allow you to stand, walk, jog, run, jump, dance, skate, and a myriad of other fun activities and adventures. When your foot health is compromised, so is your mobility.

How Can We Help?

Have you been feeling somewhat out of balance or unable to move as much as you’d like? You may be experiencing foot dysfunction. Our experienced chiropractors will conduct a thorough examination to determine the underlying cause of your imbalance and dysfunction. If they determine that orthotics can help you, they will recommend that for you.

Ottawa Health: Performance and Rehabilitation is your trusted provider of custom orthotics in Ottawa. Orthotic devices or orthoses are custom-made devices that modify the structural and functional characteristics of the movable parts of the body, such as your feet. We offer custom-made orthotic inserts that go in your shoe to help stabilize and balance your foundation.

Custom orthotics focus on correcting issues affecting your feet, while taking into account the effect these issues can have on other areas of your body, including the hips, knees, and lower back. Addressing foot health issues, therefore, is a positive step towards your overall well-being.

Common Problems Related to Foot Dysfunction

Some common problems that arise from foot dysfunction include:

  • Bunions, corns, calluses
  • Plantar fasciitis and heel spurs
  • Flat feet or collapsed or fallen arches
  • Achilles tendonitis
  • Shin splints
  • Chondromalacia patella
  • Patello-femoral pain syndrome/Jumper’s knee
  • Iliotibial pain syndrome/Runner’s knee
  • Hip/low back pain

When left unaddressed, these problems can trigger long-term complications that result in limited mobility and compromised well-being. If a problem becomes chronic, it may take longer for a given therapy to produce an effect.

Orthotics aim to address problems that likely took several months or years to develop and may require additional therapy. A comprehensive approach incorporating chiropractic, physiotherapy and massage therapy can help address these issues, especially when used with custom orthotics.

The Process

An examination of the feet, including assessing the way you walk and other related movements, is an essential part of the orthotic prescription. A gait analysis will demonstrate the force pattern of your walking gait cycle. A 3D scan of your feet will be taken using the latest foot scanning technology and sent to our orthotic producers at Footmaxx. The Footmaxx team then uses this information to fabricate a premium-quality orthosis that is made specifically for you.
