Mississauga Orthotics

Get back on your feet with custom orthotics

Orthotics are shoe inserts that can help correct irregular walking patterns. In short, they make standing, walking and running more comfortable and efficient by changing the angles at which the foot strikes a surface. They can help align the entire leg, many times helping with knee, hip or even lower back problems. Ultimately, patients use orthotics to improve foot function and minimize stress forces that could cause foot deformity or pain.

Orthotics are also extremely effective for children with foot deformities. Many pediatric physicians recommend providing these children with orthotics soon after they start walking to stabilize the foot. These orthotics can be worn in regular or athletic shoes.

During an orthotics appointment, the chiropractor will assess alignment, then take an impression of your feet that will be used to shape the orthotics. After a few weeks, your orthotics will be ready for you to pick up!
