What are Custom Orthotics?
Orthotic inserts are medical devices specifically prescribed by your chiropodist in order to correct and support the way you walk. They can be used to correct existing conditions, preventing existing conditions from progressing, and inhibiting new conditions from developing.
Custom made orthotics aren’t just for runners or people with severe foot issues. Anyone with foot pain or discomfort can benefit from orthotics. This pain may be caused by an imbalance, change in the foot structure, or injury. Further, people who walk or stand excessively at their workplace or people with a family history of foot problems can benefit, even if they don’t have any existing conditions.
Orthotic inserts are custom-made to the exact specifications prescribed by your chiropodist. They provide a custom fit and are comfortable to wear in your regular shoes, meaning you don’t have to worry about buying orthotic footwear.
