Orthotics help to support and align the lower body, from the feet up, to reduce unnecessary stress to the lower body’s joints and soft tissue. Orthotics can be used for sport specific purpose or day-to-day use. Orthotics can help reduce soreness in you lower back, hips, knees, shins, ankles, feet, and/or toes. They are used effectively to treat acute injuries, arthritis, diabetes, post-op, and are often used as a form of preventative medicine. Check the “Injuries and Conditions” page to see if your soreness is listed to learn more.
Our orthotics are made with over 15 years experience and with the industry’s top technology. Each of our orthotics are made from a non-weight bearing cast of your feet. This mold is then used to engineer your orthotics to the specifications determined by your pedorthist. Each orthotic is 100% custom made.
Contrary to popular belief, orthotics can be made to fit most shoes. It is not always possible to fit one orthotic to all shoes a person owns, but for almost all shoe types, there is an orthotic to pair with it.
