Custom Molded Orthotics

Corrigan Podiatry employs the Gait-Scan System, a revolutionary diagnostic tool for assessing a foot’s biomechanics by quickly and painlessly obtaining a 3D image of the foot and ankle. This is accomplished using a laser guided pressure sensing mat that takes more that a 100,000 measurements of your feet as you stand and walk across the scanner. After reviewing these images, the doctor consults with a specialist (PhD in Anatomy and Physiology) in Canada to properly access what type of custom molded orthotic is necessary to correct the problem at hand.

When your feet hurt, you hurt all over!

Foot problems are caused primarily by foot imbalances. The 26 bones of the foot can assume an abnormal, unstable position when standing or walking. Some of these imbalances are obvious, such as "flat feet" (hyperpronation) and "high arches" (hypersupination"). Most however, are so subtle they go undetected until symptoms occur. Your feet are the foundation of your body. Foot imbalances put extra stress on the entire skeletal structure. This is one of the primary causes of ankle, knee, hip and back problems. For immediate foot pain relief, a Corrigan Podiatry expert can see if custom made orthotics are the solution to your foot problems!

Eight great reasons to explore if foot orthotics are right for you:

  • Pain in feet after walking or first thing in the morning
  • Fallen Arch, Flat Foot and High Arch
  • Painful Heel, Plantar Fasciitis and Heel Spur
  • Corns, callouses, bunions and hammertoes
  • Metatarsalgia, Morton's Neuroma, painful bony areas
  • Sore ankles, knees and lower back
  • Achilles tendonitis, shin splints and IT Band Syndrome
  • Tired, aching, burning Feet

This graphic is a pressure mapping graphic to the left and a three-dimensional schematic of a patient’s gait to the right. Both of these demonstrate the pronation and supination of the foot as well as all deformities or irregularities in the stride. All of this information is combined to create an orthotic specifically designed for the patient’s feet. We do not use stock orthotics, and we custom grind each orthotic to fit each person’s feet only.

Below you see the type of orthotics offered by Corrigan Podiatry. Please notice the thickness and shape of these devices, as they will fit into most loafers, pumps, dress shoes and of course tennis shoes and boots. They are transferable to all of your shoes and will retain their structure and function for at least 18 to 30 months based on the patient's size and activity.

Casual

SuperFlex

An orthotic for patients who require one pair of orthotics to wear in the majority of their shoes. Our Superflex orthotics can be worn in most shoes with the exception of slip on dress shoes.

Best Suited For:

Patients who require a pair of orthotics that are versatile enough for casual shoes or sport shoes.

Specialty

DiabeticFlex

The standard diabeticflex now includes a vinyl sandwich as well as 1/8" blue poron foam. A specialty accommodative orthotic designed for diabetic patients, the Diabeticflex has been specifically created to relieve high pressure areas and prevent the formation of ulcers on the diabetic foot.

GaitPlates

These specialty accomodative orthotics have been designed to induce toe out and toe in. To induce toe out, the plastic shell is shaped such that the plastic is distal to the 4th and 5th metatarsal heads and proximal to the 1st, 2nd and 3rd metatarsal heads. To induce toe in, the plastic shell is shaped such that the plastic is distal to the 1st, 2nd, 3rd metatarsal heads and proximal to the 4th and 5th metatarsal heads.

Best Suited For:

Patients under the age of 8 that have excessive adduction or abduction of the foot during active gait. 

CushionFlex

An orthotic specifically designed for feet that can afford to sacrifice some correction for increased comfort and cushioning. This orthotic is suitable for an arthritic patient or a geriatric patient. A slightly bulkier orthotic that will fit in most casual shoes and walking shoes.
