Custom foot orthotics can help manage dysfunction related to your lower back, pelvis, hips, knees, and/or feet. You may benefit from custom foot orthotics if you have been diagnosed with plantar fasciitis, medial tibial stress syndrome, patellar femoral pain syndrome, iliotibial band syndrome, lumbar spine/sacroiliac joint dysfunction etc. Other conditions that could benefit from orthotics include arthritis, diabetes and foot deformities.
Our certified pedorthist will perform a lower extremity biomechanical examination, including a gait analysis, to determine if you are a candidate for custom orthotics. Certified technicians carefully craft the devices to ensure an optimal fit. In certain situations, you may benefit from “off the shelf orthotics” which may provide enough control to improve foot mechanics and help to reduce symptoms. These products are available for purchase at Bragg Creek Physiotherapy.
Most extended health care insurance plans cover custom foot orthotics. Please check your insurance plan for this information.
