CUSTOM FOOT ORTHOTICS - MISSISSAUGA

What Are Custom Orthotics?

For over 3 years, Delta Physiotherapy & Rehab has provided custom orthotics to Brampton and Mississauga to correct foot imbalances.

Custom orthotics can be likened to prescription glasses that work to correct vision. Our orthotics are precision-designed biomechanical medical appliances that are custom-made to modify the foot’s structure to relieve pain and improve function.

Who Can Benefit From Custom Orthotics?

Orthotics are prescribed to treat foot problems that can lead to pain and inflammation. The custom orthotic’s malleable body helps realign the foot’s musculoskeletal structure, redirecting certain motions and relieving pressure in the wrong places.

Proper fitting custom orthotics can help manage localized foot pain, leg and knee pain, growing pains in teens, lower back problems and prevent injuries.

If your feet are prone to alignment issues, this can impact your gai and cause unnecessary stress on the knees, hips and back. Delta Physiotherapy & Rehab has a chiropodist in Brampton who is passionate about helping you get back on your feet and get back to what’s important to you in life.

What Conditions Can Custom Orthotics Benefit?

  • Arthritis – patients living with rheumatoid arthritis or osteoarthritis suffer from joint inflammation, pain and mobility loss. Custom orthotics can help relieve pressure on joints in the lower lumbar, helping to mitigate pain and swelling.
  • Plantar Fasciitis – this is the inflammation of a thick band of tissue that connects the heel to the toes. Pain is experienced at the bottom of the heel, making it difficult to pressure the feet.
  • Diabetes – diabetes is a disease that can cause nerve damage over time all over the body. It’s also known to be particularly damaging to the patient’s feet, where they may begin to lose sensation, making them more prone to injuries.
  • Back Pain – years of improper footwear or injuries to the feet can lead to back pain. The sciatic nerve runs from the low spine and travels down the legs and ends at the feet connecting this whole region. Problems in your lower lumbar could stem from irritated nerves at the feet.
  • Flat Feet – this refers to the flattening of the foot’s arch, which can make stabilizing the body more challenging. People with flat feet are also at a higher risk of developing muscle strain to compensate for the lack of stability.
  • High Arches – on the opposite side of the spectrum, when a patient comes in with high arches, they’re placing more pressure on the ball and heel of the foot, causing pain and instability of their movement.
  • Hammer Toes – this foot condition is characterized by an abnormal bend in the toe’s middle joint, making a claw-like shape of the toe. This can be extremely painful, making it difficult to walk.
  • Bunions – or hallux valgus is the development of a bony bump that puts pressure on the big toe. Early correction of bunions with the use of custom orthotics can help correct bunions and may prevent having to remove the bunion surgically.
  • Heel Spurs – this is a build-up of calcium deposits on the underside of the heel bone and arch, which can cause an abnormal gait and pain in the surrounding muscles and joints.
  • Injuries – orthotics can help support the foot and ankle to prevent it from rolling excessively inward or outward, helping to stabilize the body and prevent further damage.
  • Positional Concerns – Orthotics can help correct the feet’ alignment due to underdeveloped leg and foot muscles.

What Can You Expect When You Make An Appointment for Custom Orthotics?

At Delta Physiotherapy, you can expect a client-centred approach to care, which means you can expect a thorough examination of your gait, pain and lifestyle so that we can offer you the best treatments for a sustainable recovery.

We’ll create a cast of your feet and use software that helps us analyze your gait and walking pattern in order to design orthotics that are unique to your body and movement habits.After your custom orthotics are made, we’ll schedule a fitting appointment to ensure that it fits into your shoes comfortably and make any fine-tuning adjustments as needed.

You can expect a follow up several weeks after your fitting appointment to check in on how your orthotics are working for your condition. If needed, we can make more adjustments and recommend in-clinic movement therapies at our Mississauga physiotherapy clinic.

"Do I Need A Doctor's Note For Orthotics?"

To get your custom orthotics covered by your extended health plan, all you need is an assessment from a registered chiropodist. Additionally, your orthotics must be dispensed by a chiropodist for your claim to be approved.
