Put your best foot forward with a pair of custom orthotics.

The Orthotic Shop of San Francisco has been healing San Francisco two feet at a time for over 20 years. Whether you call them custom orthotics, custom insoles, orthotic inserts or orthotic footbeds, we have you covered. We work with orthopedists, podiatrists and chiropractors to provide the best possible results in a custom orthotic. Our approach is a mechanical one where we insure all the joints of the lower extremity are functioning at their best. This will restore the normal range of motion thereby reducing pain and dysfunction. Call today to schedule a complimentary consultation to find out if we can help you.

Why custom orthotics instead of over-the-counter?

Custom orthotics are specifically designed for your feet. Focusing on the supporting the problem spots in your feet that are causing pain to other parts of your body.  Over-the-counter orthotics are not made specifically for your feet. If a person has feet that are identical in length, width and pitch, they may benefit from an over the counter product. Most of you who are reading this wouldn’t fit into that category. People rarely have feet that are totally symmetrical, hence many of us need a custom fit orthotic to achieve the best result possible. A custom orthotic is meant to restore normal mechanical function thereby reducing pain.

Why should I consider using a custom orthotic?

  • In order to correct foot deformities
  • To help your foot and ankle function correctly
  • Provide support to the ankle and forefoot
  • To reduce the risk of further or new injuries
  • To combat plantar fasciitis
  • To reduce back, knee and ankle pain associated with poor foot alignment

Who Benefits?

People wonder who exactly can benefit from a pair of custom orthotics. My mentor loves to say, “Fifty percent of your patients desperately need orthotics, the other fifty will merely benefit tremendously from having them.” While I myself am seldom that aggressive in my commentary, I believe that the vast majority of people will perform better on a pair of orthotics. You might work on your feet all day and go home with tired dogs. You might be athlete looking to make it to the next level in performance. Whoever you are, a pair of custom orthotics will help you to achieve your goals. If you have any questions about orthotics, please feel free to call.

Dr Camp is so compassionate! I came in knowing what I needed (new orthotics) and the specific issues with my feet as a runner. He hooked me up with some custom hardshell orthotics as per my request. After the first run, I knew they fit like a glove! No fatigue in my feet or ankles. No issues with my neuromas AND he added some extras in to allow my toes to reach the perfect angle. Giving me more control and a longer stride. If you’re looking for custom orthotics for daily use or as an athlete, Dr Camp is a perfect choice! Will be seeing him in a year for new orthotics.

"During the 2003 King of the Bay windsurfing competition I hurt my foot. Thought I was going to have to drop out. Dr. Camp taped me up, sent me back out and I won the contest. Thanks Dr. C for the help with my foot I came out a winner !"

As an MD I was a little leery of having my orthotics made by a Chiropractor. After meeting Dr. Camp and talking to him for a while, I was impressed with his knowledge and professionalism. He proceeded to give me one of the most through examinations I have ever had. I have received my orthotics and use them for running and walking, I am very happy with the product. Thank you Dr. Camp for the prompt service and attention to detail.

Ed Camp is an innovative, approachable and helpful Chiropractic Foot Specialist. He cares about his patients, is interested in finding ways to help them and thinks outside the box, in large part because he seems to have a wider range of tools and approaches than traditional podiatrists. I’ve used him for orthotics and the fit has been excellent. But he also has thoughts and suggestions that go beyond just the orthotic fitting and I have found them very helpful. He just gets it.
