Welcome to OHIP Whitby Physiotherapy & Sports Rehab’s comprehensive guide on custom orthotics, a personalized solution for your foot health. Custom orthotics are meticulously crafted corrective shoe inserts designed to provide individualized support to the intricate structures of your feet.

These orthotics are tailored to address biomechanical abnormalities, foot deformities such as bunions, hammertoes, flat feet, and high arches, as well as various joint and muscle conditions, including arthritis. By redistributing forces and pressures that our muscles and joints encounter during movement, custom orthotics correct imbalances and manage discomfort, leading to improved gait and enhanced overall wellness.

If you’re experiencing persistent foot, ankle, knee, or hip pain, seeking relief through custom orthotics is a prudent step. These specialized inserts, prescribed by your doctor or chiropodist, can alleviate discomfort and promote optimal foot function. On average, a pair of custom orthotics can offer lasting benefits for one to three years with daily wear.

Crafting custom orthotics involves a thoughtful process that considers your lifestyle, footwear choices, and specific foot type. At OHIP Whitby Physiotherapy & Sports Rehab, our licensed chiropodists guide you through this journey, beginning with an Orthotic Assessment appointment.

This thorough evaluation allows us to understand your unique needs, whether related to pain, activity levels, or medical history.

The Process Unfolds as Follows:

The Orthotic Assessment

Your chiropodist starts by understanding your history and concerns, along with your regular activities and footwear preferences. This valuable information helps determine the optimal orthotic design for your needs.


Based on your assessment, a casting method is selected, either plaster casting, 3D scanning, or foam casting. Each technique captures the foot's position known as Subtalar joint neutral. This crucial step provides the foundation for creating orthotics tailored to your requirements.


A follow-up appointment is scheduled to fit your new orthotics, ensuring they provide optimal comfort and support. You'll receive guidance on breaking in the orthotics and recognizing signs of proper functionality.


Should you encounter any issues or require adjustments, our team is here to help. We offer free repairs or adjustments within three months of receiving your orthotics to ensure your continued comfort and effectiveness.

Conditions Treated by Custom Orthotics:

Custom orthotics offer a valuable solution for various foot conditions, including arthritis, plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendonitis, bunions, hammertoes, flat feet, high arches, Morton's neuroma, and metatarsalgia. While OHIP coverage is not available for custom orthotics, most extended health insurance plans offer coverage. Our team is well-versed in insurance documentation requirements and can provide the necessary documents for a seamless claims process.

Custom orthotics can help alleviate pain and discomfort associated with arthritis by providing proper support and cushioning to affected joints.

Orthotics can provide essential arch support and shock absorption, reducing strain on the plantar fascia and easing pain.
