Custom Orthotics

A custom orthotic is a device designed to align the foot and ankle into the most anatomically efficient position. They look like insoles, but are biomechanical medical appliances that are custom made to correct your specific foot imbalance.

Custom orthotics work on your feet much like glasses work on your eyes - they reduce stress and strain on your body by bringing your feet back into proper alignment. The plastic body of the custom orthotic helps to re-align the foot by redirecting and reducing certain motion that takes place during the gait cycle.

Custom orthotics fit into your shoes as comfortably as an insole - and they have the advantage of having been made from precise imprints of your feet.

What are the signs that you may need custom orthotics?

The symptoms of poor foot mechanics can include any one of the following:

  • Localized foot pain
  • Bunions, hammer toes
  • Arch/heel pain
  • Leg/knee pain
  • Hip or back pain - even neck pain

Discuss any nagging foot, leg, or back problems with our chiropractor Dr. Katherine TIbor. By performing a simple in-office gait analysis, she can help determine if your feet are the cause of your problem. Dr. Katherine Tibor can then prescribe custom orthotics to help correct your specific foot and body imbalance.

All you made need is a pair of insoles to use with your own shoes.

If you need to purchase excellent quality name-brand shoes that can accommodate your orthotics, Balanced Health Care offers a variety of comfortable and attractive shoes from The Orthotic Group. Several are on display in our clinic, and you can also look at The Orthotic Group's catalogue, which offers a wide variety of other styles - from casual and running shoes, to dress shoes, to boots. 

If you see something you like, you can order your custom-fitted shoes during your appointment, and pick them up at our clinic during your follow-up appointment.
