Canadian Certified Pedorthist

A custom-made foot orthotic is a device inserted into your shoe designed to align the foot and lower limb into a more efficient position and better manage load or forces. Excessive tissue forces can be altered allowing for injured tissues to heal and optimal function to be restored.
The body is connected in what is called a kinetic chain, therefore the way the feet function has implications on the rest of the body. The correct footwear and foot support can act to improve function and relieve tissues of abnormal stresses, both in the foot and higher up in the kinetic chain.
