Benefits of
Custom Orthotic
  • Pain Relief: Custom orthotics are designed to align and support the foot, alleviating pain in the feet, ankles, knees, hips, and back.
  • Improved Biomechanics: By correcting abnormal foot function, custom orthotics can enhance the body's overall movement and performance.
  • Prevention of Foot Disorders: Custom orthotics can prevent the progression of foot disorders like bunions, hammertoes, and plantar fasciitis.
  • Enhanced Comfort: As they're individually designed based on the person's specific needs, custom orthotics provide a higher level of comfort compared to over-the-counter inserts.
  • Increased Athletic Performance: For athletes, custom orthotics can help increase endurance, strength and performance by improving foot and lower limb function.
Before & After
Here are the methods we employ in our approach to your treatment:
  • Initial Assessment: The process starts with a detailed assessment of the patient's feet, gait, posture, and symptoms. The practitioner may also consider the patient's lifestyle and footwear.
  • Foot Impressions: Next, impressions or scans of the patient's feet are taken. These can be done through different methods such as foam boxes, plaster casts, or 3D digital scans.
  • Custom Design and Creation: The foot impressions or scans are used to create a unique orthotic device tailored to the patient's specific needs. The orthotics are usually made from materials like plastic, carbon fiber, or other polymers for durability and comfort.
  • Fitting and Adjustment: The custom orthotics are then fitted into the patient's shoes. Follow-up appointments are often scheduled to ensure the orthotics are functioning correctly and make any necessary adjustments.


What is Custom Orthotic?

When a foundation is unstable, the elements above it are affected. Your feet are no exception. Any imbalances with the supporting structures of your feet can result in excessive foot motion, which inhibits and alters proper foot function. This can result in a rotation of the legs, which may affect your ankles, knees, hips and back. Premium Clinic’s custom foot orthotic devices (orthoses) are designed to control one’s foot biomechanics to a precise degree throughout all phases of gait, altering the effects throughout the entire body.

Who needs it?

If you are experiencing foot, shin, knee, hip or low back discomfort that does not resolve or becomes chronic, the origins may be biomechanical in nature. This is where an orthotic device may be helpful. Since orthotic devices can work in a preventative fashion, they can be appropriate in cases where future problems are likely. For example, if the foot rolls in or flattens excessively, the lower extremities become predisposed to additional stress, leading to possible pain and limited function. Similar problems may occur with a high arched foot. High arched feet while standing are typically imbalanced and provide very poor shock absorption. Orthotics can ultimately improve weight distribution and comfort. Keep in mind, regardless of foot type, as we walk, run or play sports, our body weight lands on our feet up to 4,000 times a day.

What are the special designs offered at Premium Clinic?

With few exceptions, custom orthotics can be made for all types of footwear. At Premium Clinic, we specialize in sport specific orthotics and skate orthotics. Patients will be assessed to determine what style or material is going to serve their needs best. Sport orthotics will be individually designed and specific training shoes will be recommended. Skate orthotics are low profile in design with a unique negative heel raise. This results in enhanced balance, powerful performance and a perfect fit.

How are devices fabricated?

Custom made foot orthoses are made from a traditional three-dimensional cast molding or a start-of-the art laser scanner (C.A.D. System) of one’s feet. These techniques have proven to be the gold standard and the most biomechanically accurate methods. From a positive plaster/composite mold, orthotic devices are fabricated using vacuum forming methods. Based on the individual’s body weight, foot type, footwear and activities, the latest materials are selected for the thermal molding process. The finished product is ultimately individualized by material design and customization. The orthotics come with a full lab warranty against breakage and comfort.
