At our Multi-Disciplinary Physiotherapy, Massage Therapy, and Foot Clinic in Oakville many people ask us about the difference between Orthotics from different practitioners

“I see orthotics advertised in many stores / clinics. Why should I get orthotics at your Oakville clinic?”

We always tell people that Custom Orthotics are an investment in your health, function and well-being. In order to do so you want ensure you get the correct custom orthotics, prescribed by a Ontario Registered Chiropodist and Foot Specialist. The use of Orthtics to treat a patient is part  of the Legal Scope of Practice of a Registered Chiropodist or Podiatrist under the Ontario Chiropody Act. There is no other Regulated Health Discipline that has this defined in their Scope of Practice.  Orthotics are used in a number of situations:

  • Plantar Fasciitis

  • High Arches/Flat feet
  • Heel pain
  • Achilles tendinitis
  • Diabetic pressure relief
  • Arthritis
  • Ankle instability
  • Hip pain
  • knee pain
  • Bunions
  • Claw toes

Many private insurance companies are being more stringent on who can fit for and dispense orthotics for the above reasons. Prescriptions are accepted by most Health Insurance Plans.
