Why You Should Choose Custom Orthotics

As an active individual, there are a variety of biomechanical issues in the feet and lower extremities that can stop you from getting out and enjoying yourself and keeping fit. These problems can even give you knee, hip, and back pain! Instead of suffering, you should investigate whether custom orthotics from The Toronto Centre for Sports Medicine & Preventative Health Limited will help your condition. When you choose our orthotics in Toronto, you’ll receive the following benefits:

The Right Orthotics – When you purchase off-the-shelf orthotics, you may not be getting the right option for your foot.  Also, the counter orthotics are not covered by your private health plan. When you come to us, we will take your history into consideration and do a full physical exam before prescribing and dispensing your orthotic. Custom made orthotics are covered by most extended health plans.

Make Observations and measurements– Our team will be able to speak with you about your problems and make the necessary adjustments using the latest technology. If your orthotics are not performing as they should, we are proud to offer a money-back guarantee.

An Experienced Doctor – Dr. Jack Hakoun has had more than 33 years of experience working with orthotics. This means he is experienced in biomechanical assessments, performing laser 3D scans, foam casts, force plate analysis and analyzing your running technique when applicable.
