Custom Orthotics

A custom orthotic is a device designed to align the foot and ankle into the most anatomically efficient position. They look like insoles, but are biomechanical medical appliances that are custom made to correct your specific foot imbalance.

Custom orthotics work on your feet much like glasses work on your eyes – they reduce stress and strain on your body by bringing your feet back into proper alignment.

The plastic body of the custom orthotic helps to re-align the foot by redirecting and reducing certain motion that takes place during the gait cycle.

Custom orthotics fit into your shoes as comfortably as an insole – and they have the advantage of having been made from precise imprints of your feet.

The symptoms of poor foot mechanics can include any one of the following:

  • Localized foot pain
  • Bunions, hammer toes
  • Arch/heel pain
  • Leg/knee pain
  • Hip/back pain – even neck pain

If you need custom orthotics, then Don Valley Health & Wellness – Sports & Physiotherapy Rehabilitation Centre located on the corner of Pape and Danforth near Danforth Village, Riverdale and East York can help.

Most health insurance plans cover custom orthotics. Speak with a Don Valley Health & Wellness – Sports & Physiotherapy Rehabilitation Centre clinician for more information.
