Custom Orthotics in Calgary
by Dr. Jason Gurevitch and Dr. Darryl Gurevitch, Podiatrists at the Associate Foot Specialists Clinic, Calgary
At Associate Foot Specialists Clinic, we create custom made foot Orthotics in Calgary.
Prescription foot orthotics are custom-made shoe inserts created for the individual wearer.
They are medical devices designed to correct biomechanical imbalances, allowing for normal function and alignment of the foot. An orthotic is designed to control the mechanics of the foot to a precise degree – from the heel contact phase of walking through the midstance and toe-off phases.
Orthotics help to alleviate and control a number of foot problems, including heel and arch pain, plantar fasciitis, flat feet, bunions, posterior tendonitis, shin splints, metatarsalgia and neuromas to name a few. Their use is often prescribed as a highly successful, practical and conservative approach to many foot problems.
