At ADM Ottawa Physio, our team is dedicated to providing the best services in Ottawa and the surrounding region. As such, we include custom orthotics as part of our primary services.
Custom orthotics can help treat leg, back, and foot issues. Surprisingly, the position and alignment of your feet can cause a cascade effect. This means that when your feet are improperly aligned, they may impact other structures, such as the back or hips, causing pain in these areas.
With custom orthotics, you realign your foot and fix your gait cycle. Consequently, you can prevent or eliminate pain happening in other parts of the body as well. Our experts at ADM Ottawa Physio are ready to help you find the right custom orthotic design for you and your body.
Custom Orthotics in Ottawa
What is a custom orthotic? 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 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 realign the foot by redirecting and reducing certain motion 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.
Do You Need Orthotics?
Usually, your doctor or another health practitioner will recommend orthotics as part of a treatment plan to address specific pain issues. Reasons they may recommend orthotics include:
- Improving ankle or foot function.
- Correcting feet or ankle deformities.
- Offering support to the feet and ankles.
- Decreasing injuries and pain down the road.
Custom orthotics are made to fit your feet. This means they are designed to address your specific issues and abnormalities. Consequently, you can continue to enjoy your life or the sports you love - free of pain.
However, it’s important to note that the outcomes involved with custom orthotics partially depends on the person making the orthotics. At ADM Ottawa Physio, our team is trained and experienced when it comes to custom orthotics. We pride ourselves on quality and strive to provide the best in orthotic solutions.
