Why custom orthotics?
Pain and deformities can arise in the feet such as bunions, plantar fasciitis, corns and hammertoes. Because foot function affects the entire chain of bones leading up to the spine, pain and dysfunction in the knee, hip and low back often result as well. In all, there are over thirty common diagnoses related to poor foot function.
What is an orthotic?
An orthotic is a supportive device which is placed inside footwear, to change the mechanical function of the foot. It works dynamically during weight-bearing activities like walking, running and standing. Ideally, it should provide full, custom and corrected arch contact so that the foot works in a biomechanically correct way. This is why we've teamed up with Sole Supports, which manufactures the only full arch contact orthotic. Calibrated to flex for your weight and foot type.
