Custom Fit Orthotics

An ‘orthotic’ is a device designed to restore your natural foot function. Many complaints such as heel pain, knee pain, and lower back pain are caused by poor foot function. It’s the orthotic’s job to re-align the foot and ankle bones to their neutral position. The natural foot function is restored and in turn, this helps alleviate problems in other parts of the body. In addition, orthotics give a more even weight distribution, taking the pressure off sore spots (e.g. the ball of the foot, corns in between toes, bunions etc) and they provide some shock absorption.

They are either inserted in a shoe or integrated into the shoe’s design so that they become a part of the shoe’s sole. Orthotics differs from inserts that you can buy at any store because they are specially made to conform to the unique shape of your foot. Each orthotic is as different as the foot it’s made for.
