What are Custom Orthotics?
Custom Foot Orthotics are made from individual cast impressions of your feet and provide you with the unique support that your feet require. All too often, injuries of the spine, pelvis, and lower limbs can be traced directly back to a lack of proper support of the feet. Similar to the foundation of a house, your feet support the weight of everything above them. By providing adequate support to your feet through Custom Foot Orthotics, you allow your body to experience improved alignment. Consequently, this improved alignment has been shown to help decrease pain in the back, knees and feet. On the other hand, if your feet do not have adequate support it can lead to injuries.
Through a variety of specific modifications and material choices our Chiropractors are able to provide you with the best possible fit. Furthermore, each pair of Custom Orthotics are designed with both your foot and activities in mind and help provide relief for what ails you. Custom Orthotics can be designed for both professional and athletic footwear.
