Measuring your Feet for the Perfect OrthoticsDo you know how to get straight A's? By using a ruler, of course! Let us apply the same concept to finding the perfect orthotic - by measuring your foot. If you or someone you know is in need of an orthotic to correct or relieve the pain from a foot or ankle condition, you may be wondering how their feet are fitted.

Getting your feet measured for orthotics is completely painless. Each of your feet will be measured from the ankle to the tips of your toes, while the toes are pointed straight. Both feet may also be evaluated while your ankles have been turned in various directions.

Your chiropodist will also observe your feet while you walk and when stationary to determine which areas are experiencing unnecessary pressure and stress. Notes will be made regarding the location of your discomfort, your weight, and your shoe size. Once all of the necessary information has been gathered, you will be paired with a perfectly fitting custom orthotic, made specifically to address your individual needs. These orthotics should be placed inside your shoes and worn as directed.

Keep in mind that the details above may vary from one office to another. Orthotics cannot correct structural deformities, but they are a great option for pain relief. If you have been searching for a perfect fit, schedule an appointment to get your feet measured for orthotics with Achilles Custom Orthotics and Footcare in Cambridge, ON, today! You can reach our office at (519) 624-4122 or by way of our online patient forms.
