How We Make Custom Foot Orthotics?
The reason behind your foot pain determines the type of foot orthotics that will work the best for your condition. At Dixie Physiotherapy & Wellness, we begin by doing a computerized scan of your foot. While the scan is being done, our physiotherapists will rotate your ankle, placing it in a “sub-talar neutral” position. This scan results in accurate results with better alignment and improves support for your knees, hips, and back.
We manufacture these removable shoe inserts or insoles by taking an impression of your foot with a plaster cast mould or 3D laser scan.
