Orthotics in Burlington
What are Custom Orthotics and Footwear?
Pillars of Wellness, located in Burlington, Aldershot, specializes in the use of custom orthotics to help you effectively heal and rehabilitate from injuries and conditions, whether they are chronic or acute.
Custom orthotics are external devices used to modify and support the structural and functional characteristics of the neuro-musculoskeletal system. Many patients present to us with pain in the feet, knees, hips or low back.
Custom foot orthotics are an external device designed to fit into the footbed of your shoe. They provide support by redistributing ground reaction forces and redistributing weight.
Along with a comprehensive custom treatment plan, custom orthotics are an effective way to relieve pain and discomfort on the way to better healing.

Custom Orthotics at our Clinic in Burlington
At Pillars of Wellness, custom orthotics can be cast and designed by our skilled chiropractor, Dr. Matharu. After a thorough assessment, the doctor will create a 3D model of the cast to produce your unique orthotic footwear, helping you return to a pain-free life. Dr. Matharu can also provide prescriptions for ready-made orthotic footwear, as well as other orthotic appliances, based on your needs.
Dr. Matharu will also develop a comprehensive treatment plan to address your foot and related health concerns. In addition to custom orthotics, she may also suggest exercises, chiropractic care, physiotherapy, or other modalities to help you regain function and improve your wellness — all of which are offered in our Burlington clinic.
Extended health benefits may cover some or all of the cost of custom orthotics. Pillars of Wellness does not accept assignment of benefits and our professional services are rendered and charged directly to the patient for all fees incurred. For your convenience, we will gladly assist you in providing statements and necessary forms so that you can be reimbursed by your insurance carrier.
Note that most Extended Health Care (EHC) plans cover custom orthotics. This means that you pay nothing out of pocket. Please confirm with your insurance provider if this is the case for you.
