Custom Orthotics improve your whole body health

Orthotics is a branch of medicine that focuses on the design and application of external devices used for support, like splints and braces. In particular, custom orthotics are medical devices that are manufactured to address a patient’s unique biomechanical needs and gait imbalances. This field focuses exclusively on the feet, the part of the body that has a critical effect on the body’s alignment.

How Custom Orthotics work

Custom orthotics are crafted from a scan, foam, or plaster cast of a patient’s foot, along with detailed clinical information from the patient’s healthcare provider. They fit comfortably into shoes with laces or straps by simply removing the existing manufacturer’s insole and replacing it with the product.

How Do Custom Orthotics Help?

Custom orthotics help the body restore a natural balance and normal movement patterns which can significantly reduce strain, pain, and discomfort. For optimal results, a custom orthotic should be worn on a daily basis inside quality, supportive footwear. Healthcare practitioners will provide specific instructions on how to gradually increase wearing time for daily activities as well as more active routines like running or sports. The benefits overtime include relief from excessive pressure points, fatigue, and pain.
