Once our podiatrist has thoroughly evaluated your feet, we can get you fully customized orthotics.
Orthotics, or a biomechanical apparatus, is a widely used treatment to correct foot problems. A custom made orthotic device stabilizes your foot and controls how you walk. By fitting your foot and your shoes, an orthotic device is a cost-effective way to ease foot pain and discomfort. At White Oaks Foot & Ankle Clinic in Edmonton, we prescribe orthotics if an off-the-shelf product or other therapies, such as workouts at home, have not been successful.
Orthotics can be part of a thorough care strategy to alleviate different complications, usually related to pain and stiffness in the lower limbs.
Many of the targets a doctor may have for orthotics therapy include:
Correcting deformities of the foot
Helping the foot or ankle to perform properly
To give protection to the ankle
Reducing the risk of more injury
At White Oaks Foot & Ankle Clinic in Edmonton, we specialize in creating the orthotic device perfect for your condition.
Creating custom orthotics is a five-step process:
Examination by a podiatrist
Making a mould of the foot with a neutral suspension cast
Sending the cast to a certified podiatry lab
Dispensing the custom made orthotic
Follow up and further treatment if needed
At White Oaks Foot & Ankle Clinic, we provide the following orthotic products:
