FOOT ORTHOTICS

Welcome to Cornerstone’s Foot Orthotics Clinic.

We provide expert assessment and fitting of custom orthotics in North York. Appointments are exclusively provided by skilled and experienced registered physiotherapists who have specialized understanding of the biomechanics of the foot. And because you are seeing a physiotherapist, they are able to expertly assess your gait and recognize if your leg, pelvis, or trunk are also contributing to your problem. So you can be reassured that you are treating the root cause, rather than simply addressing a symptom.

Foot Orthotics Are Commonly Used To Treat:

  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Heel spurs
  • Metatarsalgia
  • Excessively pronated and supinated feet (flat or high arches)
  • Morton’s neuroma
  • Osteoarthritis or pain in the joints of the feet
  • Compensatory knee, hip and back pain

Advanced Assessment Techniques

Our Orthotics Clinic is proud to utilize the latest technology in foot assessment through the Orthogenics 3D Foot Scanning System. Video capturing software allows us to use an ipad to record thousands of measurements per second creating a precise digital replica of your foot. Combined with your physiotherapists’ manual exam results, this information is sent directly to a Toronto-based manufacturing lab where your orthotics are precision-crafted to the exact specifications of your assessment.

Will Insurance Cover My Orthotics?

If you have extended health benefits, then in most cases yes. However, please check your policy details carefully, as some insurers have requirements that only allow assessments by certain types of health practitioners to be covered. If you have any questions, please contact us and we’ll be happy to walk you through the details.
