We are here to help! With all of these choices, it is easy to get confused, but we are here to help!
Dress orthotics are designed for high heels or very slender shoes. They do not offer as much support as traditional orthotics but they can fit into a very wide variety of footwear.
Casual Dress Orthotics
Casual dress orthotics offer more support than dress orthotics, and are designed for loafers, boots, ballet flats etc.
Sports orthotics offer the best of both worlds, great support and fantastic cushioning. They are a good fit for athletic footwear, hiking boots, safety boots etc.
Casual Full Length Orthotics
Casual full orthotics are designed for casual and dressier footwear with removable insoles. They are typically a more slender cut to accommodate these styles of shoes, but still offer good support and good cushioning.
Accommodative orthotics are designed for patients with particularly sensitive feet due to diabetes, ulcers and pressure sores.
Specialized Adult Orthotics
Orthotics for people with rheumatoid, psoriatic or osteoarthritis are designed with specific cushioning.

I am a registered chiropodist and foot care specialist and have been helping patients for over 20 years.
Are you uncertain about whether you should choose a chiropodist vs. podiatrist? Chiropodists and podiatrists provide the same care. There are 600 registered chiropodists in Ontario and only 60 podiatrists. The College of Chiropodists of Ontario stopped using the name podiatrist in Ontario in 1993, over 26 years ago — but the name is still used in other provinces in Canada, also USA and UK.
Chiropodists today must complete 7 years of post-secondary education. We do complete case management of foot problems, assessing and treating the entire foot and its complications.
