Premier Care Physio is a reputable establishment among Richmond Hill chiropractors and we value our clients’ safety and well-being amongst all else. All of our clients are walked through an individualized evaluation and examination where we create a definitive treatment plan for your specific foot issue. 

 

When Do I Need Foot Orthotics?

Some mild feet issues can be resolved with over-the-counter soles however, it is highly recommended to consult a licensed chiropractor for the most concise information. There are two types of foot orthotics that we will choose the best fit for your individual needs:

Functional: Best at treating ongoing injuries of the foot and correcting an abnormal walk or run. Typically made from a rigid and stiff material.

Accommodative: Best for flat-footed patients that need ongoing extra cushion and support. Typically made from a softer and padded material. 

If you are experiencing discomfort when walking, aches and pains of tendons and joints and chronic fatigue, it’s time to assess your feet for custom orthotics. 

 

What Are The Benefits of Custom Orthotic Insoles?

Depending on your height, weight, foot type and foot problem there are custom foot orthotics made to fit each individual with their specific needs. A proper fitting foot orthotic can help you correct your posture, reduce headaches and migraines, and generally decrease pain found in your hips, legs and lower back. 

Proper custom foot orthotics relieve foot aches, inflammation and help avoid the commencement of more severe injuries such as shin splints, plantar fasciitis and arthritis. Custom foot orthotics are moulded to your individual foot, targeting your problem areas rapidly and precisely. 

 

Why Do Custom Insoles Cost Much More Than Over-the-Counter Insoles?

Some clients choose to invest in over-the-counter insoles as a means of correcting their feet problems however, they are proven to not be as effective as custom orthotics. Custom foot orthotics can last up to 10 years compared to over-the-counter ones that maximize their use after a year depending on the level of activity and use.

Custom orthopedic insoles are an investment initially that saves you money over time; they can range anywhere from $200 to $800 for a pair, while over-the-counter insoles range from $35 to $90 for a pair. If we break down the math, the custom orthopedic insoles save you money over time while properly-being accustomed to your needs. Custom orthopedic insoles are usually covered by Canadian benefit plans, whereas over-the-counter insoles are not.

If you are still wondering why custom insoles can rack up a high bill, remember that included in your price is your foot examination to determine your gait and lifestyle and casting where a podiatrist takes a cast of your feet. Factoring in professional advising and personalized care, custom insoles are a much more suited option to relieve your overall pain.
