Guelph Orthotics provides Custom Orthotics, Bracing, Orthotic Footwear, and Movement Analysis to residents of Guelph and the surrounding area. Our mission is to improve our patients’ and clients’ quality of life, by providing them with the highest possible standard of orthotic care and customer service.
Guelph Orthotics (GO) is more than just the name of our clinic. GO is our core philosophy, our motivating principle, and our daily practice.
We want GO to embolden our clients and our employees to always strive for better. We want to help you GO further, GO faster and GO forward. At Guelph Orthotics, we embrace motion so our patients can fully embrace life.
Our mission at Guelph Orthotics is to improve our patients’ and clients’ quality of life, by providing them with the highest possible standard of orthotic care and customer service.
Guelph Orthotics serves a wide range of clients:
- Competitive athletes, and people with significant disabilities
- Young children, and the elderly
- Residents of Guelph, Kitchener-Waterloo and the surrounding area
At our clinic, we have the depth of experience and expertise to help you achieve whatever goals you’re aspiring to. Whether you’re coming to the clinic with significant mobility issues, or you’re an elite level athlete looking for that edge to push you over the top, we can partner with you to find the right solution.
There are two critical factors that make Guelph Orthotics the best choice for orthotics, bracing, orthotic footwear, and movement analysis in Guelph: The quality of our assessment technology, and our demonstrable commitment to customer service.
Guelph Orthotics is unmatched in our dedication to using the most advanced, most effective, evidence-based clinical assessment tools. We are the only clinic in Guelph and the surrounding area that employs three-dimensional motion-tracking analysis technology. We are also the only clinic in Guelph that employs an in-shoe pressure measurement system.
Both of these tools help us give you a more accurate orthotic assessment, and a better finished product as a result.
Our Commitment To Customer Service
At Guelph Orthotics, we genuinely love what we do and the patients we serve. We care deeply about providing the highest standard of care, and this includes providing the highest standard of patient-centric customer service. We strive to offer you the convenience of care at a time and place that fits your schedule.
What does this mean in practice? Guelph Orthotics is the only orthotics clinic in the area that offers both evening and weekend hours, and we are the only clinic that you can call for an appointment 24 hours a day, seven days a week. We have also chosen a location (13-33 Farley, at Gordon and Clair) with abundant free parking.
