Custom Orthotics

Custom Orthotics in Guelph, ON

At Westwood Physiotherapy & Wellness, we are proud to offer custom orthotics to Guelph residents as part of our primary services. 

Surprisingly, your feet impact your body in more ways than you might think. When the feet are misaligned or incorrectly positioned, this can cascade, affecting the ankles, knees, hips, and back. The result? Nagging pain and injury with no obvious cause.

Custom orthotics can help fix these issues and prevent them. Our Westwood Physiotherapy & Wellness team are experts when it comes to custom orthotics. We can help you finally say goodbye to pain for good.

What Are Custom Orthotics?

Custom orthotics resemble insoles. However, custom orthotics and insoles aren’t the same. Custom orthotics are biomechanical tools created specifically for your anatomy and your feet, helping to correct any imbalances.

Orthotics decrease stress on the body brought on by improper foot placement or position. They work to realign the feet. They are also made to fit into your shoe of choice – whether that’s your cleats, running shoes, or skates.

Do You Need Orthotics?

Typically, your physiotherapist, doctor, or another healthcare professional may recommend custom orthotics to help combat your pain or discomfort. They may do so to help improve your feet or ankle biomechanics, to correct feet or ankle deformities, to help support your feet or ankles, or to help reduce pain and prevent future injuries.

All in all, custom orthotics are made for your feet. They are designed for your specific pain, condition, abnormalities, and issues. This ensures that you continue your life and the activities you love – without pain or injury.
