Custom Orthotics

Custom Orthotics in Markham & Aurora, ON

Make sure your body is supported and working optimally. You may require custom foot orthotics.  

Your feet are the foundation of your body. If your feet don’t work properly, for example are over-pronated, then your body’s foundation is weak and your whole body is unstable. Custom orthotics help to strengthen this foundation in those individuals who lack this critical foot stability.  

The Honsberger Physio+ difference is that we use the same biomechanical principles in our orthotic consultations as we do in all of our treatments. If the foot functions well, as the foundation of the body, then the entire kinetic chain functions better, toe to head. All other treatments and exercise are subsequently more effective, improving overall health, reducing injury and improving performance.

Orthotics can prevent future injuries, help you overcome previous injuries, and ensure that you’re comfortable and supported while on your feet.  

Working in Aurora and Markham, our team specializes in body movement, biomechanics, and performance and can provide in-depth assessments to identify problem areas and customize solutions that meet your needs.  

Don’t wait until you suffer from an injury to get the support you need, book an Orthotic consultation to see if custom orthotics are the right choice for you so you can work and play in comfort!

What Are Custom Orthotics? 

Custom orthotics are corrective shoe inserts that are specifically designed to address individual health problems and improve foot function. They are customized to fit the unique contours of your feet and are designed based on a thorough assessment of your foot structure, gait, and biomechanics. 

Custom orthotics are typically made from a variety of materials, such as foam, plastic, rubber,  

polypropylene, graphite and composite materials and are designed to provide support, cushioning, and stability to the foot. They can be designed to address a wide range of foot problems, including flat feet, over-pronated feet, arch and heel pain, foot and ankle instability, shin, knee, hip and back pain. 

At Honsberger Physio+, we can provide custom orthotics for a wide array of footwear, including athletic shoes, daily wear shoes, work boots, hockey and figure skates, ski boots, cleats, running and cross-training shoes, golf shoes, as well as sandals such as Birkenstocks. 

Overall, custom orthotics are a valuable tool for individuals looking to improve their overall physical health and address foot problems. They are designed to provide customized support, cushioning, and stability to the feet and entire body, helping to improve foot and body function and reduce pain and discomfort. 

If we determine that you do not require custom orthotics, we do offer a wide range of Superfeet insoles for work boots, athletic shoes, hockey skates, ski boots, golf shoes and more!

What Are The Benefits Of Orthotics? 

Custom orthotics improve foot function, reduce pain and discomfort, and provide better overall biomechanics. They can help to correct imbalances in the foot and ankle, provide support for the arch and heel, and improve shock absorption during physical activity. 

Custom orthotics are an important component of treatment for plantar fasciitis (heel and/or arch pain), metatarsalgia, neuromas, bunions, hammer toes, ankle pain, achilles pain, knee pain, shinsplints, hip pain, back pain and also have a positive effect even higher up the body as the stronger foundation provides overall improved stability of the entire body’.  

Custom foot orthotics can also be helpful for individuals with conditions such as diabetes and arthritis, providing additional support and cushioning for the feet. 

Through wearing custom orthotics, you can improve foot and body function, reduce pain and discomfort, and prevent injuries. They are a valuable tool for individuals who are looking to optimize their health and improve their overall physical performance. 

How Does The Process Work at Honsberger Physio+

The process of getting custom orthotics begins with a consultation with one of our foot specialists. During this consultation, we will assess your foot structure, gait, and biomechanics to determine if custom orthotics are necessary and what type of orthotics would be best suited for your needs. 

If custom orthotics are recommended, we will take goniometric measurements and do a mold/ impression of your feet. We use Biofoam impression casting, a 3D technique accepted by all insurance companies. 

The casts are then sent to a laboratory where the custom orthotics are made. 

The laboratory uses the casting to create a three-dimensional model of the foot, which is used to design the custom orthotics. The orthotics are typically made from a variety of materials, such as foam, plastic, rubber, polypropylene, graphite and composite materials and are designed to provide support, cushioning, and stability to the foot. 

Once the custom orthotics are ready, we complete a formal fitting of the orthotic. We will ensure that the orthotics fit properly and provide the necessary support and cushioning. We also provide instructions on how to wear and care for the orthotics, including break-in protocols and periodic follow-ups to ensure your orthotics are working optimally.  

Overall, the process of getting custom orthotics involves a thorough assessment of your foot and body structure and biomechanics, the creation of a 3D casting of the foot, and the production of the custom orthotics in a laboratory. The fitting and adjustment of the orthotics is a key part of the process to ensure they are effective in addressing your particular problems. 

Some of the companies/labs we work with to create orthotics include:

Custom Orthotics may be covered under extended healthcare plans with a doctors or supporting physicians note. Please call us to learn more about insurance coverage as every insurance company varies slightly in their requirements for approval.
