Over a lifetime, an average person will have likely traveled well over 120,000 miles. That’s a lot of walking. Taking care of your feet is an important priority. That’s why Orvitz’s Podiatry Clinic offers custom orthotics in St. Catharines to keep your feet in their best shape. Our custom orthotics can treat many different conditions including:
An orthotic is a device made from a plaster cast, formed to fit your foot. And as the name suggests, custom orthotics are specially crafted for your feet. A properly fitted one helps with biomechanical issues in the bone structure of your foot, potentially correcting any issues that exist. If untreated, these issues can cause abnormal foot motion, and result in problems in the knees, hips, and back. If you are in discomfort that doesn’t seem to be resolving itself, it might be a biomechanical issue which means it’s time to look into orthotics.
When it comes to orthotics, a precise fit is key. An ill-fitting over-the-counter orthotic does more harm than good, aggravating your troubles and causing new problems. When you choose our custom orthotics in St. Catharines, you get the opportunity to be involved in the design process. When you come to us, we carefully assess your feet, your lifestyle and your needs to incorporate them into the final product. This way, you get an orthotic that blends into your lifestyle seamlessly and isn't a pain to use. Also, not only do custom orthotics offer you an exact fit, but deal with your unique foot troubles.
Custom orthotics are becoming increasingly popular over traditional orthotics because of the many advantages they have to offer. Some benefits of custom orthotics you can expect to enjoy are:

Over-the-counter orthotics in St. Catharines are available and it may be tempting to go for the less expensive option, but they will never be as effective as a custom-designed one from a practicing podiatrist. At Orvitz Podiatry, we will perform a gait analysis, studying the way your foot works while you are walking and while standing still. A range of studies are done on the motion in order to discover where the imbalances in your foot are. A cast is made, molded to your foot. The cast is then sent to a specialized lab for manufacturing. There, they create the custom orthotic that should correctly reposition your foot with every step you take.
