Many of our patients who need custom orthotics are genetically predisposed with maladaptive foot structures, such as flat feet, high arches and/or pronated feet, that often trigger painful conditions like plantar fasciitis, metatarsalgia, arthritis, & more.
At any point in life, these types of feet & the associated pain can become problematic and affect one's work, play & quality of life.
Fortunately, our custom orthotics are both the proven & prescribed treatment in providing proper arch support to alleviate certain types of foot, ankle, knee, hip & back pain.
For these reasons & many more, our patients of all ages & activities have benefited from wearing our industry-leading custom orthotics as provided by Fraser Valley's #1 Certified Pedorthists at Valley Proactive Orthotics®.
