How orthotics from your podiatrists in Mississauga, Brantford, and Whitby, ON, can help your feet

Do your feet hurt? Do you spend a lot of time on your feet? Did you know that custom orthotics can help your feet and your body feel better? The truth is, your feet have a difficult job. They cushion the force of walking or running. They protect your back and the rest of your body from stress. When your feet feel bad, the rest of you feels bad too.

Fortunately, your podiatrist provides custom orthotics to help you and your feet feel better. The doctors at Podiatry Associates provide comprehensive foot and ankle care, including custom orthotics. They have three convenient office locations in Whitby, Mississauga, and Brantford, ON, to help your feet.

Let’s look at just a few of the reasons you should consider getting custom orthotics. Custom orthotics can help you get relief from the pain of:

  • Flat feet
  • Hammertoes
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Diabetic peripheral neuropathy

If you play a sport, custom orthotics can also help protect your feet from sports related foot stress, or a traumatic injury to your feet.

If you have a gait issue, custom orthotics can help correct balance and postural issues.

There are several types of custom orthotics your podiatrist may recommend, including:

Soft orthotics made entirely of various densities of materials; they can used to improve balance problems; absorb stress and shock to your feet and are an excellent choice for diabetic or arthritic feet.

Semi-rigid orthotics made of both soft and rigid materials; they are used for pediatric foot problems, sports injuries, or sports-related stress on your feet.

Rigid orthotics made entirely of rigid materials; they can help relieve tendon and muscle pain in your feet and legs.
