Foot Orthotics are custom-made shoe inserts that are medically proven to eliminate pain and discomfort. Orthotics are designed to control foot function by treating imbalances and modifying areas of weight-bearing on the foot. Many foot problems can be effectively treated with orthotics.
At Focus Physiotherapy we realize that every foot that we see is completely different. However, with our specialized assessment methodology and our years of experience, we can help almost everyone reach their optimal foot health goals!
More and more people today have realized the need for wearing a custom made foot orthotic. Custom made foot orthotics require a detailed assessment to fit according to the shape of your feet.
A custom foot orthotic device helps in correcting the alignment of the foot and the posture of the lower extremity. For a strong, stable and supportive base it is very important that our registered physiotherapists conduct a biomechanical assessment to prescribe the best orthotic for your foot.
Focus Physiotherapy uses specialized technology that helps to produce custom made footwear to address your specific individual needs. The custom foot orthotics device improves the structural deformities of the feet and mechanical deficiencies.
Our goal is to optimize your foot balance and functionality; and reduce pain from injuries such as foot, ankle, knee, hip and lower back.
Process Of Prescribing Foot Orthotics At Focus Physiotherapy.
Our registered physiotherapists will prescribe custom foot orthotics based on your foot or lower leg complaint. The process begins with a medical history of your foot, then followed by detailed biomechanical examination and evaluation of lower extremities, a gait analysis of a walking pattern. The goal is to establish a proper discussion that addressed your foot complaint.
The biomechanical examination will determine whether or not you have any bone misalignment within the foot; the joint between the leg and foot is evaluated too. The complaints will direct us to evaluate specific foot or lower leg muscles. These deformities can be due to overused muscles, tendons and ligaments, that result in damaging tissue and leads to pain or instability.
The gait analysis will demonstrate whether you have one leg shorter than the other or if one of your feet is flatter than the other. Our gait scan system will be used to find out any imbalances of the foot bone caused due to over pronation. These advanced measurements and calculations allow us to see small structural changes and assist in providing orthotics and shoe solutions.
The custom foot orthotic cast is not just a piece of plastic. This device is a flexible shell material based on your weight, activity and your foot line. This will provide you strength, stability and control over the motion. The custom foot orthotics therapy is a very important aspect to normalize the pressure on the foot and prevent future foot problems.
