Custom Foot Orthotics Kitchener

Patient getting foot examYou’ve probably seen shoe inserts in stores. Also called arch supports or orthotics, they can give your feet the support they need. The custom-created orthotics at Heritage Park Physical Therapy are made specifically for you and to support your unique condition.

What is an Orthotic?

Orthotics are a thin insert put into your shoe. When worn, they can correct biomechanical dysfunction, abnormal walking patterns or a foot deformity. These conditions can cause stress to your feet. In turn, the rest of your body can be affected. Orthotics support your feet and ankles. They hold your weight while you walk, run, jump, squat or stand. The goal is to decrease the stress in your foot so that your overall function can be improved.

The materials that your orthotic can be created from include neoprene, leather or vinyl. We’ll discuss these choices with you so that you receive the orthotic that is most appropriate for you.
