Custom Orthotics

Custom made foot orthotic devices are made specifically for each patient following an assessment of their lower extremities by a footcare expert such as a Canadian Certified Pedorthist. A custom made foot orthotic is made from a three-dimensional cast of the patient's foot and is fabricated from raw materials and made specific to each patient's unique needs. Custom made foot orthotics can help alleviate painful or debilitating conditions of the lower back, hip, knee, lower limb and foot or complications related to health conditions such as diabetes and arthritis. A custom made foot orthotic can be:

  • Accommodative - where the primary goal is to deflect pressure away from ulcers, callosities and painful pressure points.

  • Functional - a device primarily designed to control foot and lower leg biomechanical funtion.

Pedorthic Services

At LV Physiotherapy, a Certified Pedorthist from OrthoFocus will complete a full biomechanical assessment of the lower extremity, gait analysis and custom foot orthotic fitting as well as orthopaedic footwear modification and repair.

Canadian Certified Pedorthists are one of the few healthcare professionals trained in the assessment of the lower limb anatomy and biomechanics as well as the fabrication, fit and function of custom orthotics.

NOT ALL CUSTOM ORTHOTICS ARE CREATED EQUAL: Custom foot orthotics is a Pedorthist's professions speciality and NOT simply a side business for them.
