If you or a family member have leg or foot pain when walking or standing, are suffering from a disease process which can affect your feet, or have noticed that your shoes wear out in an abnormal pattern, then we can help. We are trained in the assessment, design, manufacture, fit, and modification of orthotics and footwear for the purposes of alleviating painful or debilitating conditions and providing assistance for abnormalities or limited actions of the lower limb. To find out more about what we do, visit our Orthotics Process page.
Every case requires special attention. Variables may include bone deformities, joint stiffness, instep height, amputations, and ulcerations. As a member of the Pedorthic Association of Canada, we are one of the few medical professionals educated in the design, fit, manufacture and modification of footwear and foot orthoses (orthotics), and are regularly called upon to fill prescriptions from your doctor and make recommendations for treatment. We also assess biomechanical anomalies such as hyperpronation or over supination, in-toeing or out-toeing, and leg length differences. For a more detailed list of indicators showing that you might need orthotics, check out our Symptoms page.
A custom-made orthotic may also be required to deal with specific biomechanical (movement) problems, pressure distribution, or impact forces. We are qualified to assess and treat these and many other conditions of the foot and lower leg. Not every case requires custom orthotics, and some issues can be solved by simply changing the shoes on your feet! In many cases, internal or external modifications to footwear may be indicated to assist in the treatment of these sources of pain and can come in the form of sole lifts, rocker soles, and changes to a shoe's profile. To find out how we can help you specifically, contact us or visit our footwear page.
