What is a custom orthotic?
A custom orthotic is a medical device designed to align the foot and ankle into the most anatomically efficient position. Custom orthotics work on your feet much like glasses work on your eyes – they reduce stress and strain on your body by bringing your feet back into proper alignment. The plastic body of the custom orthotic helps to re-align the foot by redirecting and reducing certain motion that takes place during the gait cycle. Custom orthotics are constructed from precise imprints of your feet and fit comfortably into your footwear.
Who needs custom orthotics?
Custom orthotics can help aid in the correction of many common conditions. These include, but are not limited to: local foot pain, knee pain, hip pain, plantar fasciitis, shin splints, morton’s neuroma, achilles tendonitis, low back pain, iliotibial band syndrome.
