Do you have flat feet? Do you often get bursitis or fasciitis? You might need custom-made orthotics. Our Clarenville clinic can measure your feet and create orthotics that will help you develop a better posture.
What Are Orthotics?
Custom orthotics are devices designed to align the foot and ankle into the most anatomically efficient position.

The plastic body of the custom orthotic helps to re-align the foot by redirecting and reducing certain motion that takes place during the gait cycle. Custom orthotics fit into your shoes as comfortably as an insole, and they have the advantage of having been made from precise imprints of your feet.
