Prescribed Medical Devices for your Shoes 

Orthotics are prescribed medical insoles.  Worn inside your shoes, these medical devices correct biomechanical foot issues such as problems with how you walk, stand, or run. 

Orthotics can help with foot pain caused by medical conditions such as diabetes, plantar fasciitis, bursitis, and arthritis.

– What Is A Custom Orthotic?

A custom orthotic is a device designed to align the foot and ankle into the most efficient position. They look like insoles, but are biomechanical medical appliances that are custom made to correct your specific foot imbalance.

Custom orthotics fit into your shoes as comfortably as an insole

– Who Needs Custom Orthotics?

The symptoms of poor foot mechanics can include any one of the following:

  • Localized foot pain
  • Bunions, hammer toes
  • Arch/heel pain
  • Leg/knee pain
  • Hip or back pain – even neck pain

– Should I Wear My Custom Orthotics All The Time?

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 you should have a second pair of custom orthotics designed for that specific activity.
