Footwear Modification: Understanding Your Options

Our expert team of certified pedorthists is able to offer an in-depth assessment of your health, goals, challenges and foot structure to create modifications to your footwear. Our goal is to always improve foot function and comfort, particularly for those with limited mobility due to arthritis, diabetes complications, and other chronic or neurological conditions.

We can offer a number of essential modifications in order to support improved health, including:

  • Spot stretching to relieve pressure on specific areas of the foot.
  • Metatarsal pad addition to support the metatarsal arch.
  • Scaphoid pad/arch support addition to the medial longitudinal arch of the shoe.
  • Lifts to compensate for differences in leg length (internal lifts or external lifts).
  • Rocker soles to reduce motion limitation and improve function and gait patterns.
  • Buttresses and flares to increase stability.
  • Sole splitting and widening.
  • The addition of a carbon fibre sole plate to minimize shoe flexing.



We work with Afana Pouliot and Steenwyk Custom Shoes using modern technology and handcrafted care to create the perfect footwear.

We will be monitoring the situation closely and provide further updates on any other changes to our clinic operations. When we re-open we will continue to screen each client before their visit, sanitize surfaces between clients and space out appointments to limit the number of people in the clinic at one time.
