Your feet are the foundation to your knees, hips, and spine. Here at Clinix we specialize in the evaluation, casting and fitting for custom foot orthotics. Custom foot orthotics, as opposed to shoe inserts or arch supports, are tailored devices that are transferable between your shoes and created from a very specific impression of your feet. They can be made of various materials to include modern flexible plastics, rigid plastics, foam, or cork.
The purpose of custom orthotics are to provide a tailored arch support that not only eliminate pain involving the feet, knees, and lowback, but can prevent and eliminate deformity and/or arthritis, as well as help improve balance and stability.
Anyone with feet! Also, anyone who has tried other orthotics and still have pain or are not satisfied with the results. Our specialists use technology that provides the answer to why many other supports have not been completely successful.
Children have feet too! This is an optimal age to provide proper support for their growing and developing structure.
Structural problems actually begin during younger years without the complaint of pain usually until an increase in sports activity or into the 20s or 30s. Today we are seeing an increase in collapsed arches and knocked knee deformity in children and young adults associated with poor shoe support (ie. flip flops, high heels, wearing shoes open). This is also associated with a lack of exercise activity seen in our children of today which results in tightening and loss of strength of the muscles of the lower leg. Childhood obesity is on the rise. Weight gain and grow spurts result in a terrible amount of impact through the feet especially when their muscles aren’t able to withstand.
We require an appointment to specifically evaluate your concerns to determine and discuss a range of treatment options that are right for you. Often times a short series of treatments involving manipulation, physical therapy modalities, or exercises may be helpful. An evaluation usually consists of evaluating the feet, knees, and/or lowback to find your structural imbalances and the cause of your concerns, as well as determine how specifically your orthotics should be made should you decide to do so.
Our practitioners can cast you the same day and in a couple of weeks you will have more bounce in your step!

Bring any arch supports, inserts or orthotics that you have used. In designing your orthotic, it can be helpful to know the heel height that you generally wear and if you carry additional weight regularly during your day and the amount.
