Custom Orthotics in Barrie

Custom-made orthotics are designed to align the foot and ankle into the most anatomically correct position, making it a vital part of our whole-body approach to wellness at Complete Care Chiropractic. Although our orthotics look like insoles, they’re biomechanical medical appliances and have the advantage of being made from precise imprints of your feet and gait cycle.

The Benefits of Orthotics

Like the foundation of a house, your feet support the weight of everything above them. When a small problem in one or both feet develops, a subtle change in the way you walk will cause a chain reaction in your posture. These changes can put stress on the knees, hips and pelvis, which often lead to secondary problems.

Here are some of the many benefits of our custom-designed orthotics:

  • Better posture and biomechanical balance
  • Decreases in foot deformity and the effects of deformity
  • Elimination of hip, knee and low back pain
  • Gait optimization
  • Improvement in foot and ankle biomechanics
  • Less fatigue while walking

The TOG GaitScan™

Orthotics in BarrieWhen you come in for your orthotic assessment, we’ll take a detailed health history and perform a physical examination with a focus on posture and lower limb biomechanics. We’ll then do a state-of-the-art scan of each foot using TOG GaitScan technology.

The TOG GaitScan is an innovative diagnostic tool and digital casting device that allows us to accurately assess your feet. The process is simple: As you walk over a mat-like structure that contains thousands of sensors, the device maps what your feet are doing at that moment in time. It measures differing amounts of pressure exerted by each foot, timing, how long the foot remains in each stage of the gait cycle, the amount of weight carried by each foot, high and low-pressure areas and center of gravity data.

This invaluable information, which includes over a million points of data, allows us to provide you with the perfect fit in your new set of orthotics.

Custom orthotics play a vital role in the realm of whole-body wellness. If you’re suffering with stubborn foot, knee or hip pain, or developing foot deformity of any kind, contact us today for a convenient assessment!
