Orthotics

What Can I Expect at my Appointments?

After a thorough assessment of your medical and physical activity history, and an in-depth examination of your posture and walking patterns, our pedorthist will discuss all treatment options with you. Since custom made orthotics are ‘hand-crafted’, a 3-dimentional cast of your foot may be required at the end of your initial assessment. Follow-up appointments include fitting your custom orthotics into your shoes, as well as making any on site adjustments that may be necessary.

Canadian Certified Pedorthists are recognized by insurance companies as a preferred provider, and most extended health benefits plans cover some or all of the cost of custom made orthotics when prescribed by your doctor.
