Formthotics - Custom Medical Orthotics

We've added a new product in office to help relieve your pain.

Formthotics are custom-fitted medical orthotics, designed to provide support and comfort for our patients. A total contact foot orthotic – achieved by thermoforming (heat-moulding) the orthotic and fitting it to the patient's foot.

Pain and discomfort is your body's way of telling you something is not right and it needs attention to avoid risking further injury. Formthotics stabilize your feet and lower limbs to help reduce foot and posture related pain. These can help with back, hip, knee, and foot pain.

It's important to remember that orthotics aren't going to completely fix your pain. In our office we will often recommend products in addition to chiropractic or rehab services to help you get better, faster. A treatment plan for back, hip, knee/foot pain may include some exercises, a change in shoes you wear, as well as adding orthotics into your shoes to help with overall pain. These small adjustments to your lifestyle can make impactful changes that will save you money and a lot of pain and discomfort in the long term.

What are they made of?

They are made of Formax foam with no hard plastic parts.

What are they used for?

The reduce pain, treat and prevent injuries, and improve comfort.

Do I have to custom order them?

No! We have them available in office and you can be immediately fitted after your consultation with our providers. Measurements do not need to be sent away to another organization to produce laboratory-made custom orthotics which is often more expensive. The foam gently forms to the contours of your feet and your shoes. You will see your foot shape imprinted into the orthotics within a week of wearing them.

You can leave with your custom fitted orthotics, same day! If any changes are needing to be made, they are easily customizable and are able to be re-molded!
