Our mission is helping people move out of pain and dysfunction with expertise, experience and compassion. WorkSTEPS can provide employers with monthly, quarterly, or annual reports that detail the locations the employer is testing, the employees tested at each of these locations, their gender, birth dates, positions being tested, and results (capable, not capable, incomplete, medical risk). Orthotics may improve running and athletic performance by helping to control excessive foot motion (pronation) or by providing support for a high, stiff arch or supinated foot, among other structural variations.
A recent study demonstrated that orthotics can improve balance performance in older adults.
We fabricate and customize semi-rigid foot orthotics in our office using the Fastec system, a patented, direct mold system used by many professional athletic programs across the country. Other orthotic fabrication systems make a plaster cast or foam mold of your foot, or use a digital scan or pressure plate to make an “image” of your foot. Our method forms the orthotic blank directly to your foot, using a “floating” system that allows us to place the bones of your foot in a perfectly neutral position. You are probably here because you or someone you care about is suffering from pain or problems with their foot and ankles; or you may simply have some question or concerns about your feet and ankles.
Call us today or visit our Heel Pain page to see what might be causing your heel pain and to see what we can do to fix it.


Orthotics are beneficial to many people because they provide support that's customized for your feet. Here in the communities of Markham, Unionville and Stouffville, Ontario we treat patients with heel pain, arch pain and general foot pain, heel spurs, Achilles tendonitis, thick fungal toenails, ingrown toenails, infected toes, foot infections, warts, corns, calluses, bunions, diabetic feet, and patients that need custom foot orthotics along with other foot related problems. Common foot issues such as plantar fasciitis, heel pain, metatarsalgia, Achilles’ tendonitis, and shin splints are almost always improved by well-made foot orthotics. Once this is performed we can customize your foot orthotics to correct for deviations such as prominent metatarsal bones, differences in leg length, forefoot and rearfoot angulation issues, among others.
Whether it is a sore, painful heel in the morning, an ingrown toenail, or another foot problem we can help!!
Most patients experience the most pain in the arch of the foot, the bottom of the heel, or the back of the heel. Patients with foot pain, imbalances, or who stand all day can benefit from the balance that orthotics provide.
If you see a sign for custom orthotics in a grocery store or pharmacy, beware--if they don't make a mold of your foot, then they are NOT custom orthotics. Orthotics are often used by athletes to relieve symptoms of a variety of soft tissue inflammatory conditions like plantar fasciitis.


Computerized platforms are deceitful, they may take an imprint of your foot, but they are not able to create a custom insert based on the three dimensional traits of your feet. Here at the Markham Foot Care Clinic, we want to help you get back to life-as-usual by eliminating your foot pain.
A thorough evaluation performed in our office will determine if custom orthotics have the potential to help. If you have Diabetes or are overweight, orthotics are great for your feet because they counteract the extra stress that's put on your feet and help to prevent future problems like blisters and ulcers. If you'd like to know more about orthotics, visit our Orthotics page or call our office to schedule an appointment.
