Orthotics

Home/Services/Orthotics

Custom foot orthotics are specially designed shoe inserts that are fabricated from casts of your feet.

They are designed with specific consideration toward any biomechanical abnormalities in your feet and have been shown to alleviate foot, ankle, knee, hip and lower back pain in addition to improving athletic performance. Custom foot orthotics are often covered under group benefit plans.

Orthotics can treat and prevent many different physical conditions. According to the literature, orthotics have been shown to help those who over-pronate, a foot-type that has been related to different knee conditions (such as patellofemoral disorder). Orthotics have also been shown to help those with plantar fasciitis (heel pain) or those at risk for stress fractures in the tibia.

ORTHOTICS AT OUR CLINIC

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.

I have been a patient of Dr. Kevin McIntyre’s for 2 years now. Prior to that, I visited a few other local chiropractors with little to no success. Growing up, my father was an incredible chiropractor so when he couldn’t practice anymore, I had to find someone like him; someone who respected the traditional manual manipulation style of chiropractic. Thankfully, my wife and I found Kevin! His style is very much like my dad’s but he also incorporates elements of the “new school” with Active Release Technique. I would recommend Kevin to any of my family and friends (and already have a few times over!).
