Orthotics are also used to treat and prevent injury-causing motions such as excessive supination (when the foot rolls outward) and pronation (inward roll of the foot). Standing, walking, and running are more comfortable and effective with orthotics. They can also be designed to redistribute pressure on the soles of the feet, decreasing pain from calluses, corns, bunions, and bone problems.
At Dalhousie Station Foot Clinic, we fit you with orthotics that are unique to your feet and specially designed to alleviate foot, ankle, leg, or back problems. Our patients then visit Dr. Russell, a board-certified podiatrist with years of experience fitting orthotics in Calgary.
