Orthotics

Orthotics are custom made shoe inserts used to correct an irregular walking pattern. Coming in various forms and material, orthotics improve foot function minimizing stresses on joints. In order to create a custom insert, doctors will take a cast of your foot that will make a copy of any misalignment. With the cast, the insert will stabilize and align the foot in the correct manner.

What is the Function of Orthotics?

If your foot does not have the appropriate motion when striking the ground (overpronate or underpronate), joint pain is likely to follow. Orthotics facilitate proper sequencing of foot mechanics to help the body transfer and absorb forces more efficiently.
