Our Clinic in Calgary Offers Custom Orthotics for the Treatment of Flat Feet, Malalignment Syndrome and Other Foot Problems

A biomechanical foot orthotic is a highly specialized piece of medical equipment that enables the joints and bones of the foot to be in a more stable position for standing and while in motion. Orthotics control each phase of the walking cycle, from the moment your heel contacts the ground to when your toes push off the surface.
