What is a custom orthotic ?
An orthotic available over the counter is NOT comparable to a custom orthotic made by your foot care professional. A custom orthotic is built to hold your foot at predetermined angles. If you are in your shoes with the angles correct, you will have the maximum mechanical function of the foot and lower extremity. On a custom insole, you will have better function of your ankle, knees, hips and low back. A custom orthotic will improve one’s overall performance. Custom footbeds that correct mechanical deficiencies will as a biproduct often reduce pain.
