Effective treatment of a foot problem sometimes requires the use of biomechanical devices, known as custom orthotics. These are highly specialized, custom-made three-dimensional foot inserts that enable the joints and bones of the foot to be in a more stable position while standing and while in motion. The custom orthotics in Calgary’s North Hill Foot & Ankle Clinic help relieve symptoms of common injuries such as plantar fasciitis, metatarsalgia, neuromas, and other foot and ankle tendon injuries. We provide you with custom orthotics that are comfortable to wear and help in the correction of foot and ankle dysfunction.

How Do They Work
Custom orthotics are specially built and designed to help you walk easily and painlessly. They control each phase of the walking cycle – right from the moment your heel contacts the ground to when your toes push off the surface. Thus, they provide support at every stage of the walking cycle and make sure that you are never alone and without support.
There are a number of steps involved in the making of the perfect custom orthotics for you. Before actually designing custom orthotics we take an accurate measurement of your foot using a three-dimensional laser scan. These precise measurements help in giving the custom orthotics the right cushioning and foot alignment to help reduce the stress and strain on the body. Another important feature of custom orthotics is that it helps position your foot so you use the right muscles at the right time more efficiently. If you want, we can also make orthotics for you that are designed to go with a particular type of footwear. Once the measurements are taken, we make your custom orthotics and then call you in for a trial.
While it may take a while to get used to feeling comfortable in your custom orthotics, make sure to use them on a long-term basis to get the most out of it. If, at any point in time, you feel uncomfortable in your custom orthotics, reach out to us.
