Custom Orthotics in Calgary for Pain Management & Alleviation

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 for standing and while in motion. The custom orthotics in Calgary’s North Hill Foot & Ankle Clinic helps relieve symptoms of common injuries such as plantar fasciitis, metatarsalgia, neuromas, and other foot and ankle tendon injuries.

Custom orthotics control each phase of the walking cycle – right from the moment your heel contacts the ground to when your toes push off the surface. Get in touch with us.

How Custom Orthotics Are Made

Before designing custom orthotics we take the 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. You can also have custom orthotics designed to suit a specific type of footwear.

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. For any concerns or modifications related to your custom orthotics, please connect with us today and give us a call.
