Custom Orthotics are designed to align the foot and ankle into the most anatomically efficient position. Custom orthotics fit into your shoes as comfortably as an insole and are biomechanical medical appliances that are custom made to correct your specific foot imbalance. 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 made from precise imprints of your feet – no more casted impressions of feet here! We use state-of-the-art technology to get gait and stance information that allows us to make perfect orthotics for you!

A lot of patients ask us: “Should I wear my custom orthotics all the time?” The answer is simple: The longer you wear your custom orthotics the more benefit you will get out of them. If your daily activities vary to the extent that you change your footwear, then a second pair of custom orthotics designed for that specific activity are recommended as well. (I.e. going to the gym after work)

Orthotics will reduce the strain on the body, allowing the body to adapt easier to proper alignment. They will not reduce muscles tone, but will help position your foot so you will be using the right muscles at the right time, minimizing fatigue and allowing your muscles to be used more efficiently. Orthotics can help many different conditions such as:

  • Foot Pain
  • Bunions, Hammer Toes
  • Arch/Heel Pain
  • Leg/Knee Pain
  • Hip or Back Pain
  • Neck Pain
