Custom orthotics designed to correct your foot function, alleviate pain, and help you stay active!
Foot, ankle and lower limb pain can all be a result of long-standing wear & tear. Abnormal joint positions can be corrected by a custom-made orthotic allowing for the affected tissues to heal and normal function to be restored.
A custom-made orthotic is a device inserted into your shoe designed to align the foot and lower limb into the most efficient position. An orthotic that conforms perfectly to your arch provides support and acts to change your foot’s posture and function – not just provide cushioning. The correct foot orthotic can address the underlying cause of your pain and can act to restore proper posture and relieve tissues of abnormal stresses.
