At Orleans Integrative Medicine, every patient receives a biomechanical analysis before being casted for custom orthotics. This is done to ensure that the custom orthotics produce the correct alignment – not only of the foot, but of the knee, hip and spine as well.
Would I benefit from Custom Orthotics?
- Localized foot pain
- Bunions, hammer toes
- Arch/heel pain
- Flat or Tired Feet
- Leg/knee pain
- Hip or back pain
The fact is, shoe manufacturers sell shoes based on comfort not necessarily performance, and because of this, many people find custom orthotics vastly superior to their everyday shoe insoles. With that said, many people do not need custom orthotics and would benefit from other forms of treatment or exercises. If you aren’t sure, or are just looking for an exam or opinion, contact us.
If you are planning on using extended health benefits to purchase custom orthotics at OIM, please let us know if you require a medical prescription prior to booking your appointment.
