What are they?
Custom orthotics are specially designed shoe inserts that provide arch support and cushioning to help relieve foot pain, improve foot alignment, and reduce stress on the feet. They are made to fit an individual's specific foot shape and size, providing better support than generic over-the-counter insoles.
How do they help?
The foot and ankle are the foundation for the overall posture of the skeletal body. Abnormal foot mechanics cause stresses that can lead to numerous foot problems as well as leg, knee, hip and lower back pain. The arches of our feet are under constant strain, and are susceptible to imbalances and injuries.
Custom orthotics are specifically designed insoles to correct your foot imbalance. By bringing your feet into proper alignment, they also affect the alignment in your knees, hips, pelvis and lower back. They provide support, control, stability, absorb shock, and relieve pressure on uncomfortable or sore areas. They reduce pain and discomfort, as well as rebalancing your feet during activity.
What conditions do they help with?
Custom orthotics can help with a variety of conditions, including plantar fasciitis, heel pain, arch pain, bunions, neuromas, and arthritis. They can also help improve balance, reduce fatigue, and relieve pressure on the joints.
