A custom foot orthotic is a device that is designed specifically for each individual and can be discretely inserted into the shoe for support. Custom foot orthotics serve to align the body, prevent and/or accommodate foot abnormalities, and assist with the overall function of the foot.
Used in conjunction with appropriate footwear, a foot orthotic can be effective in helping to treat a number of foot and lower limb problems including (and not limited to):
- Heel pain
- Arch pain
- Forefoot pain
- Shin splints
- Knee pain
- Hip pain
Foot orthotics can also help address foot and lower limb pain and complications related to health conditions such as arthritis, diabetes, congenital deformities and neurological complications.
