Custom Orthotics | Vaughan, ON

Are You Looking For Custom Orthotics In Vaughan?

Your feet have a direct impact on the rest of your body. Like the foundation of a house, your feet support the weight of everything above them.

Find out about the availability and cost of our custom orthotic solutions.

Your feet are a complex system of 52 bones, 66 joints, 214 ligaments and 38 tendons and muscles. When a small problem develops in your feet, the subtle changes in the way you walk will cause a chain reaction of adjustments in your posture and walking mechanics.

If left untreated, foot problems may worsen. Eventually, the pain could interfere with your ability to do even the most basic things like walking upstairs or down the street. If pain alters the way you walk, these changes can put stress on your joints and lead to more serious problems such as:

Knee pain
Achilles tendonitis
Hip pain
Plantar fasciitis
Back pain
Stress fractures
What Foot Type Do You Have?

FACT: 90% of people are pronated. This often leads to too much pressure on the inside of the foot, which leads to the body compensating and adding pain and stress to the inside of the knees and outside of the hips and low back.

Custom orthotics can help realign the foot and decrease pain and stress along the rest of the body.

Frequently Asked Questions
How Long Do Orthotics Last?
Your typical pair of custom foot orthotics will last for an average of two to three years. However, the lifetime of your orthotics will depend on their daily wear and tear.
What Shoes Fit Custom Orthotics?
Orthotics are typically worn in running shoes and sneakers. However, custom orthotics can be made to fit every type of shoe from dress shoes and pumps to boots, ice skates, golf shoes, soccer cleats and even sandals. They can also be customized to accommodate for heel spurs, neuromas, bunions, and many other foot conditions.
How Are Custom Orthotics Made?
The process to make custom orthotics starts with taking an accurate 3D impression of your foot while it’s in proper alignment and position. The impression is then sent to a lab where the orthotic is molded from thermoplastic and other materials. At Premier Spine and Sport Rehabilitation & Wellness we send our impressions locally, to one of the largest labs in North America. The custom orthotics are then received back within 1-2 weeks, at which point we will have a fitting appointment. During this appointment we make sure that the orthotic fits your shoes and any fine-tuning adjustments will be done to make sure that it is comfortable. Several weeks afterwards we will follow up with you to ensure that the orthotic is comfortable and managing your condition well.
Are Custom Orthotics Covered By Insurance
Most insurance companies cover some, if not all of the cost of orthotics when they are deemed medically necessary. At Premier Spine and Sport Rehabilitation & Wellness we do a benefit check call with your insurance company prior to taking the 3D impression to verify coverage details and ensure that we provide all of the detailed paperwork required by your specific insurance company to make sure you get reimbursed by your insurance company.
Do I have to wear orthotics all the time?
The problems caused by overly pronated or supinated feet are exacerbated in weight bearing. To get the maximum benefit of your custom orthotic, you should be wearing it any time you plan to be on your feet for long periods of time.
