Many of us take our feet for granted. Whether it’s not wearing the right footwear and not giving them the support they need, or not resting when we ought to, our feet are put to use almost every single day. The good news is that with help from The Moncton Foot & Ankle Clinic, you can feel relief and set yourself up for comfort down the road. Want to know how? Read on.

One of the main services we offer is custom-made orthotics. Designed and built specifically for each user, custom-made orthotics can fit in most shoes, giving your feet comfort and support which can help alleviate pain and discomfort.

There are three main types of custom orthotics;

Functional; made of rigid or semi-rigid material, a functional orthotic helps to place your feet in a more desirable position, helping your body to bear its own weight so that you can move in a way that is least harmful to your body.

Accommodative; Accommodative orthotics are built and designed to relieve stress from arthritic conditions that put pressure on your joints and cause your foot to become difficult to move. This type of custom orthotic will be made from a flexible or semi-flexible material.

Therapeutic; For those with irregularly shaped feet, therapeutic custom orthotics assist with stability, arch support, and forward movement.

Once we have completed an assessment, we can help you discover what kind of orthotic will serve you best. We will examine your feet and ankles, ask you questions about your lifestyle as well as examine your current footwear. Then using that information, as well as a cast of your feet, we will create your custom-made orthotics.

Do you have questions about the process? Reach out. We’d love to hear from you.
