Orthotics are used to:

  • Control and/or improve the function of the foot in order to alleviate symptoms
  • Prevent or reduce abnormal weight bearing forces to reduce the risk of developing musculoskeletal deformities, lesions, and injury to vulnerable structures
  • Correct the shape and/or function of the foot in order to provide easier movement capability
  • Aid rehabilitation from acute injury

Orthotics for the foot are used to treat the following conditions:

  • Overpronation (flat feet)
  • Bunions
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Achilles tendinopathies
  • Medial Tibial Stress Syndrome (shin splints)
  • Ankle instabilities
  • Arthritis
  • Metatarsalgia
  • Neuroma
  • Lower back pain
  • Knee pain

At our clinics, orthotics are prescribed after a careful assessment by either a chiropodist or chiropractor with special training in this area. Most extended healthcare benefit plans cover all or part of the cost of orthotics.
