The type of foot orthotics often used at the Clinique Podiatrique de l'Outaouais is the dynamic kind. Following a comprehensive biomechanical examination and a precise diagnosis made by the podiatrist, a foot mold is taken then the orthotics are custom made in a chosen laboratory.
When the patient's condition permits it, remarkably durable and discrete orthotics are prescribed to guide the feet into an optimal dynamic movement. They help treat and prevent foot, knee, hip and back pain.
Foot orthotics are a medical treatment and must be prescribed. Both private insurance plans and government acts entitle the podiatrist to prescribe them precisely and completely.
