Practitioners at Port Hope Health Centre take the time to first assess your biomechanics and diagnose the problem before creating a custom orthotic for you. Only after the assessment and if necessary we can provide the patient with custom orthotics.
The most advanced and cutting edge techniques are then utilized to create a custom orthopaedic insert (orthotics) to correct any specific biomechanical errors originating from the foot. Custom Orthotics can be created for the purpose of aiding in injury recovery as part of a treatment plan, as a treatment on its own, for the purpose of improving athletic performance, or simply for preventative care.
*Custom Orthotics are often fully covered under most insurance health plans
