Everybody knows somebody who raves about their custom orthotics or ‘insoles’ – and for good reason! Orthotic inserts are an easy and effective solution to many foot care problems. They can greatly improve the comfort of your existing shoes and help with foot-related problems or discomfort in your other joints or back. Don’t let the stories you may have heard about over-the-counter shoe inserts dissuade you from trying a real custom pair of orthotics and orthopedic shoes. Remember that there is no such thing as an “average” foot, which makes the “one-size-fits-all” type of insoles inevitably ineffective in solving foot problems. Picking up a pair of cushioned insoles at your local drug store or supermarket will not work anything like a pair of personalized and custom-made orthotics in Bradford.
Why Consider Orthotics and Orthopedic Shoes
Orthotics are custom made inserts that can be worn in your shoes. They can be ordered by a medical professional for you after a thorough examination of your feet has been completed. Once the reason for your foot pain and discomfort has been identified, the orthopedic shoes and custom orthotics will be created to fit perfectly and alleviate your symptoms.
Your custom orthotics will be tailored to your unique needs based on an assessment by a professional. You will get a thorough consultation to discuss your foot problems and the healthcare provider will perform an analysis of your:
- Pronation (inward roll) or supination (outward roll) of the feet
- Any bunions, calluses, corns, etc.
Your orthotics and orthopedic shoes designed at our foot clinic in Scarborough will be formed using layers. Each layer is made to fit and form to the specific contours of your foot. That means from top to bottom, the orthotics are designed for you and to support your every step. That’s the major difference and noticeable feeling that distinguishes custom orthotics from store-bought insoles.
