Custom Orthotics & Orthopedic Appliances in Barrie & Surrounding Areas
Custom orthotics from the foot specialists at Atrium Foot Clinic in Barrie can help relieve pain, improve function and treat various foot conditions. When your feet do not function properly, a range of conditions may develop including corns, calluses, tendonitis, joint pain and muscle pain. Other common symptoms include heel spurs, plantar fasciitis (or arch pain) and metatarsalgia (burning at the ball of your foot). You may even develop ankle, knee and lower back pain.
Many of these conditions are caused by biomechanical dysfunction, which can be treated by prescription orthotics. Orthotics from Atrium Foot Clinic are fabricated from a plaster cast impression and customized to you. We commonly see patients 3 or 4 times for follow-up appointments at no additional cost to ensure your complete comfort.
Choosing the Right Shoes is Critical to Your Foot Health

They will also help maintain your balance when walking on rough or uneven terrain. Keep in mind that well-made orthopedic shoes don’t have to look like orthopedic shoes. There are many different styles available that will give you a comfortable, healthy fit.
Tips on Selecting Shoes
Choose a reputable manufacturer – you get what you pay for
Check the details, including the materials used and methods of construction
Is the sole glued to the upper part of the shoe or is it stiff and patchy with nicks and scuffs?
Fasteners should be well positioned and durable
Check eyelets and hooks to ensure they are firmly attached
