Orthotics

Custom orthotics are devices that insert into your footwear and help to correct alignment or support deviations in the biomechanics of the body. When prescribed correctly, orthotics can decrease pain, improve stability and even help to prevent future bio-mechanical problems.

Our Physiotherapists and Chiropractor are qualified to fit clients with orthotics. We highly recommend that you obtain a doctors referral before you attend your orthotic appointment as most insurance companies require this in order for reimbursement. As well, we recommend that you look into your benefit coverage to ensure a physiotherapist/chiropractor is able to do an orthotic fitting for you.
