Most people have tried over the counter shoe inserts from a drug store or shoe store at some point in their lives and found that they did not provide very much benefit. This is because everyone’s feet are different, so a generic shoe insert isn’t able to correct your unique foot issues.
Spectrum Physiotherapy of Newmarket offers custom orthotics that are developed for your feet after an assessment of your feet, gait, pronation, and any pain you’re experiencing. They’re made from more durable materials than shoe inserts, but they fit into your shoes in the same simple way. Custom orthotics are specially designed to work with your feet, bringing your feet and ankles into proper alignment and reducing the stress and strain on your body.
