Custom orthotics are a common choice for foot pain relief, but they’re never one-size-fits-all, so you need to go to the right place to find the right orthotics for you. Here is what to look for in a place for custom orthotics.
- A foot expert, not a salesman: Even if you find a local foot specialist, you might find someone who believes the answer to every foot pain is orthotics to make a better sale. This isn’t always the case, and sometimes all you need are some good stretches. A foot expert, like our team at Abbott Foot & Ankle Clinic, will help determine whether custom orthotics are the best choice for your feet rather than only focusing on the sale of the orthotics.
- A qualified, experienced clinic: You might find basic orthotics at a shoe store, but orthotics were never meant to be one-size-fits-all. A qualified, experienced clinic like ours will take the time to examine your feet, analyze your gait, and discuss your symptoms to pair you with custom orthotics that were made especially for you and your feet.
- A professional organization: In Ontario, it’s easy to be fooled by someone who might actually make foot orthotics that could make your foot pain worse. However, only chiropodists, physicians and podiatrists can provide and prescribe custom orthotics, and they are the only ones you can trust. You can trust that working with our chiropodist Tony Abbott will lead you to quality foot care and custom orthotics that will truly help your feet.
