Custom Orthotics and Footwear

Do I need Custom-Made Orthotics?

Your feet are the structural support system for your spine and skeleton. Problems in your feet can have a detrimental effect on your spine's ability to be able to respond to chiropractic care.
At Natura Wellness Clinic we offer high-quality custom-made orthotics and footwear manufactured by The Orthotic Group and Ontario Orthotic Lab to help reduce the effects caused by improper ankle and foot function.

What is the benefit of Custom-Made Orthotics?

The core issue of many conditions and symptoms is loss of joint mobility, and poor biomechanics.
Foot orthoses are a necessity for correcting the faulty structures and biomechanics of not only obvious foot problems but also for ankle and knee pain, pelvis, hip, and spinal pain. This is achieved by preventing misalignment of the foot which can significantly alter the way in which all bones move within their joints "up the chain".

Orthotics look similar to the insoles that are currently inside your shoes, or you can get them built directly into shoes we offer.
When placed in your shoe, they help control abnormal foot motion.
To create orthotics just for you a thorough physical assessment is completed, including gait analysis. Then, a prescription cast for the orthotics is produced using a method that has been a standard for many years, the feet are cast in the neutral biomechanical position in compressible foam, which retains the exact shape of the foot.
The manufacturer then creates a computer-generated model from the data, and custom shapes the orthotics to provide perfect control.
Many additional pads, wedges, and liners can be added to make it a completely unique product for your comfort.

A small abnormality in your feet can have a large impact on joints higher up in the body, causing longer term pain and discomfort if not addressed. These foot orthoses also help to optimize performance and enhance comfort for athletes, or people with active or more sedentary lifestyles. Diabetics who suffer circulatory problems can also benefit from custom-made orthotics. Custom orthotics and footwear are covered in whole or part by most extended health care plans. Please contact your employer or insurance agent to obtain details of your coverage.
