Custom Orthotics


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.

Do I Need Custom Orthotics?

Your feet are responsible for supporting your entire body, which is why pain in other parts of your body can often be linked back to problems in your feet. You might benefit from custom orthotics if you’re experiencing any of the following symptoms:

  • Foot Pain
  • Heel Pain
  • Leg/Knee Pain
  • Bunions, Hammer Toes
  • Hip/Back Pain

Orthotics position your feet so that you use the right muscles and the right time, improving your balance during running and walking.  Your muscles are used more efficiently, reducing your risk of foot injury and pain.  For sports enthusiasts, orthotics can improve shock absorption, lessening the effects of foot stress and fatigue. Orthotics can also be useful for people who spend all day on their feet. Hard surfaces and constant pressure on your feet can lead to foot pain, and contribute to the development of more chronic foot problems over the long-term.

The more you wear your custom orthotics, the more physical benefits you will notice. Generally, custom orthotics can be inserted into any shoe with a removable insole. You can just take out the existing insole, and replace it with the custom orthotic. Custom orthotics can also be designed to support your feet during particular activities. For example, you may have a pair of orthotics to wear in your running shoes during your morning jog, and a second pair to wear in your dress shoes for work. In some cases, you may be able wear a single pair of orthotics in different shoes, depending on the type of shoes you wear and your unique foot issues.

I started going to Spectrum after having my daughter…the team was exceptional and within a few months I was back to my old self. I had such a great experience that after my mother’s knee replacement surgery – she also became a patient and saw great results! They focused on the root cause and worked with us to solve the issue/area of concern. The atmosphere is calm, clean and warm. The staff is extremely professional and very friendly. I wouldn’t go anywhere else.

I’ve suffered from lower back issues including sciatic pain for years. I’ve gone from chiropractor to chiropractor and finally found Paul and his fantastic sports injury team. I live downtown and make the drive to Newmarket as it’s worth the drive.
