Orthotics and Prosthetics Can Help Correct Your Posture!

Foot Orthotics

Orthotics can help balance, mobilize, immobilize, or correct a body part that has been weakened by a severe injury, a deformation, or a neuromuscular deficiency. Orthotics are necessary to correct the following problems:

  • Uneven weight distribution across the surface of the feet
  • Misaligned ankles
  • Intense pressure points
  • Uneven lower limbs
  • Loose ligaments affecting the joints
  • Loss of central foot axis (pes varus)
  • Muscular weakness

Semi-rigid universal alignment postural control foot orthotics provide many advantages such as:

  • Imbalance rectification
  • Foot function correction
  • Overall body balance adjustment
  • Can be made to fit various universal shoe arches (maximum heel height of 1.5 inches)
  • Solution to various biomechanical problems
  • Foot axis realignment

Knee Prosthesis

Wearing an orthotic device can effectively reduce knee pain so that you can resume your daily activities. The orthotic is custom designed to fix weak and torn ligaments, neuromuscular deficiencies, deformations, and pain associated with different types of arthritis. Using an orthopaedic brace can help improve your quality of life.

Medicare programs such as RAMQ, CNESST, WSIB, AC, and NIHB require a medical prescription from your physician or specialist (i.e., orthopaedist, neurologist, or rheumatologist) before your device can be created or reimbursed.
