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.
