Orthotics are custom inserts that comfortably fit into shoes to support and improve foot function. If your foot functions improperly it will affect joints higher up in the body such as your ankle, knee, hip, sacroiliac joint and spine and may result in a sporting injury or painful condition in your foot or elsewhere. Orthotic solutions will help you deal with common issues such as arch pain, fallen arches, plantar feet, and over pronation.
At the Core we provide our patients with the best fitting orthotic to meet their individual, biomechanical and lifestyle needs.
Our prescription orthotics are fabricated using a unique blend of materials in several thickness options. Whether made for a casual shoe, athletic shoe or skate, these foot orthotics provide enough rigidity to support the feet, while offering the foot the right amount of flexibility to properly absorb forces on the ankles, knees, hip and spine.
Since many mechanical conditions often arise from a biomechanical gait abnormality, orthotics are often prescribed in combination with treatments such as physiotherapy, massage therapy and chiropractic.
Poor biomechanics may contribute to ailments such as:
- Plantar Fasciitis
- Achilles Tendonitis
- Shin Splints
- ITB Syndrome
- SI joint pain
