We use Formthotics™ for our orthotic fitting. The purpose of the orthotics is to support your arch and are commonly used to aid in relieving foot and heel pain, knee and even back pain. There are generally 3 foot types, namely high, normal and low arch. However, with age, our arch may collapse due to stability of the ligaments in the foot and/or the plantar fascia. We would assess your foot type in sitting, standing and walking/running. As the foot is a dynamic structure, we need to assess your foot dynamically before fitting your orthotic. Further adjustments, like adding wedges to your forefoot or hindfoot, can be made to your insoles to further correct your mechanics of your foot.
