At Burlington Sports Therapy, we believe that not everyone needs orthotics. Orthotics should not be expected to have much benefit if you have a relatively normal foot posture and normal foot biomechanics. For some people, simply changing to a more appropriate shoe is enough to assist with their condition. For others, an over-the counter support will offer enough stability and arch support to either prevent or treat their condition and serves as a more cost-effective option for them.
The prescription of custom foot orthotics is very individual and should take into consideration a great number of factors. A person’s foot posture, biomechanics and activity level all play a role. If you are in the Burlington, Oakville, Hamilton and surrounding areas and are in need of Orthotics, contact Burlington Sports Therapy today.
