Custom Made Foot Orthotics in Oshawa
It's easy, fast and secure.
Orthotics are custom-made prescription medical devices that can assist in the improvement of foot and leg function, pressure redistribution, and cushioning. Orthotics can help decrease the potential for undesirable forces generated by the feet and cause soft tissue, muscular and bone damage. There are several biomechanical issues that produce discomfort and may be relieved with regular orthotics usage.
Orthotics help your feet, legs, pelvis, and back function better by limiting excessive motion and correcting the positioning and movement of your foot joints.
Custom Orthotics can help treat plantar fasciitis, achilles tendonitis, intermetatarsal neuroma, heel pain, flat feet and much more.
