Do you live or work in downtown Ottawa and suffer from foot pain, bunions, hammer toes, arch/heel pain, flat feet, high arches, plantar fasciitis, leg pain, ankle pain, knee pain, hip pain, back pain or neck pain? Our Custom Foot Orthotics can effectively help with conditions such as these!
A custom foot orthotic is a device designed to align the foot and ankle into the most anatomically efficient position. They look like insoles but are biomechanical medical appliances that are custom made to correct your specific foot imbalance.
Custom foot orthotics help to re-align the foot by redirecting and reducing certain incorrect motions while walking or running. Custom foot orthotics can be made individually and uniquely for your work, sports, dress shoes or boots.
How They Are Made
We take a mold or impression of your feet. We then sent the mold to the laboratory where they create your orthotic. Using the mold allows the custom foot orthotics to be individually crafted to your unique requirements.
Does My Insurance Cover Custom Foot Orthotics?
Most insurance companies will cover the cost of custom foot orthotics, and we can prepare the paperwork to direct bill the insurance. Most insurance companies require a referral letter from a medical doctor stating why you need custom foot orthotics; please contact your provider to find out if you need to do this. If you have any questions at all, feel free to call us.
