Custom Orthotics

Custom Orthotics are a device that can be placed in a shoe to support, align, prevent and/or accommodate how the foot functions with each step you take.

Custom orthotics, we used in conjunction with proper footwear, can be effective in helping treat:

  • Foot Pain
  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • Shin Splints
  • Achilles Tendonitis
  • Knee Pain
  • Back Pain
  • Bunions, Hammer Toes, & Claw Toes
  • Leg Length Discrepancies

Custom Orthotics can also be beneficial for those suffering from arthritis, diabetes, or injuries to the lower limbs.


What does the Orthotic Process involve?

You will need to check with your insurance company to see if a physician’s referral is required.

Orthotic assessments are available at all PROTx locations (Dartmouth, Lower Sackville, Elmsdale and Stewiacke). The assessment takes approximately 40 minutes and includes gait analysis, footwear assessment and history taking. A 3D computerized mould will be taken.

Within two weeks, you will have your orthotics fitting appointment to ensure your new orthotics are fitting you well.

Custom orthotics are available at all PROTx locations! We have partnered with Fit Right Orthotics to bring this option to our clients. Pedorthist Carol Ann Sweeney has almost 20 years of experience and prides herself on outstanding customer service. You can learn more on the Fit Right Orthotics website!
