Do you have foot pain, knee pain, hip pain, back pain or plantar fasciitis? If you answered yes to any of these questions you may benefit from custom foot orthotics or shoes.

Custom Orthotics & Shoes:

Man walking with heel painThe custom foot orthotic and custom shoe service provided by our office benefits the many people in Calgary who suffer from chronic pain. Ongoing foot pain is not hard to understand given how many hours most people spend on their feet. It is also important to understand that the feet act as the foundation for the rest of our body. Just like building a house on an imperfect foundation causes major problems, a slight imbalance or imperfection in the feet has a chain reaction throughout the rest of the body. Many problems in the knee, hips and back begin from problems in the feet that can be corrected by custom foot orthotics or custom orthotic shoes.

What are Custom Orthotics and Shoes?

Foot orthotics are shoe inserts that work similarly to braces for teeth. The orthotics provided by our South South Calgary office are very thin and lightweight and fit discreetly into most shoes. Custom orthotic shoes are actual shoes molded to your foot starting with a shoe design of your choosing. Please be aware that even though most benefit policies state they cover custom shoes many people do not qualify as they typically are only for people with significant foot and ankle problems.  We encourage people to contact their insurance provider to determine the requirements of their policy prior to contacting our office. Custom foot orthotics and custom orthotic shoes exert gentle pressure to gradually and comfortably bring muscles and bones back into alignment.

Who Makes the Orthotic?

Every patient is evaluated by one of our licensed chiropractic doctors. Each of our doctors have over eight years of university education and are licensed in good standing in Alberta. For the crafting of the actual orthotic we utilize certified Pedorthic Technicians. You can rest assured we make quality and expertise a priority.
