Custom Orthotics in Vaughan
Kick Physiotherapy & Sports Medicine Inc. proudly offers custom orthotics fitting in the city of Vaughan.
Our prescription orthotics gently reduce strain associated with pressure points, and muscle tension. We make our custom orthotics with 100% memory thermoplastic, available in 1mm, 2mm, 3mm and 3.5mm thicknesses.
At Kick PSM, we use plaster cast exclusively.
The plaster cast method is the most accurate method for designing orthotics. We take a plaster cast of your foot while you are lying down so that no weight is exerted through your feet during the process. This enables the cast to most accurately represent your ideal foot position, and the orthotic is then manufactured from this plaster impression. We also take specific measurements to make modifications to your orthotic based on your specific foot type and function. All podiatrists use the plaster cast method due to the superior features and accuracy of this process.
At Kick, we take special care in fitting and designing a custom insert specific to your foot type, shoewear, biomechanics, body type, injury, activity and lifestyle. Our competitive advantage is that we understand the functional requirements of your sport or daily activity.
