Custom foot orthotics are devices that can be inserted into most shoes. They help in providing alignment and support to the foot, improve foot function and accommodate and correct foot abnormalities. If used with the proper footwear they are highly effective in treating various types of foot and lower leg issues.
Orthotics work by stabilizing foot alignment, cushioning the foot, and decreasing high-pressure areas. Orthotics function only when you are standing or walking on them and will not permanently change your anatomy. Orthotics are commonly used to relieve symptoms of common injuries, such as plantar fasciitis, metatarsalgia, neuromas, and various foot and ankle tendon injuries, as well as helping individuals with diabetes or arthritis.
