Custom Foot Orthotics

Custom foot orthotics are prescription medical devices made from specialized molds of your feet. They are designed to control alignment and function of the foot in order to treat or prevent injury-causing motions such as pronation (rolling-in) and supination (rolling-out). They also act to make activities such as running, walking – even standing – more efficient. Finally, they can act to redistribute pressure on the bottom of the foot to relieve pain from excessive pressure or calluses.

How do Custom Foot Orthotics work?

Most foot pain is the result of a faulty relationship between the bones and muscles of the foot. Even small misalignments can result in significant discomfort. This abnormal function can result in problems such as arch and heel pain, plantar fasciitis, knee pain … even back pain.

The function of custom orthotics is much more than an arch support. Orthotics realign the structures of the foot and leg to prevent bone mal-alignment as well as muscle, tendon, and ligament fatigue. As your foot rests on the orthotic it is gently and consistently directed into the correct position for walking, running, and standing.

Because your foot is now functioning properly, the pain of muscle strain and pressure points is relieved.
