Vancouver Chiropractic     Vancouver Orthotics




A custom made orthotic is a prescription device designed to assist in the correction of biomechanical abnormalities that affect the feet, ankles, knees and back. Custom orthotic inserts are made by taking a three-dimensional (3-D) cast impression of the patient’s foot and constructed from raw materials to each patient’s individual specifications.

Many foot problems can be attributed to collapsed or fallen arches or other biomechanical faults such as pronation (rolling in and collapsing of the arches when walking) and supination (rolling outward of the ankles and raising of the arch). These problems can be genetic in origin and most patients do not realize there is a problem until various symptoms begin to appear. These symptoms will generally manifest as pain.

During your initial appointment, Dr. Horowitz will perform a biomechanical examinationgait scan analysis3D foot scan, and posture evaluation to determine the cause of the problem. Often, pain in areas such as the kneeships, or back is caused by improper foot biomechanics. If a biomechanical abnormality is identified, this problem can generally be alleviated through prescription functional orthotics.

Custom molded orthotics offer treatment and relief for a variety of foot and ankle problems including ankle instabilitytendonitisplantar fasciitisbunion deformitycalluses, and neuromas.


At Vancouver Orthotics, we provide a therapeutic approach to treating footanklekneehip, or back pain by starting at the source. Our goal is to provide our patients with an enhanced biomechanical support system that will ultimately lead to better posture and elimination of pain. By stabilizing and balancing your feet, custom made orthotics will help restore the proper alignment of the joints and bones in the foot and improve your body’s performance and efficiency, reduce pain, and contribute to your total body wellness. We achieve this goal through specific consultation, examination and if necessary, the fitting, production and dispensing of custom made orthotic inserts.
