Custom orthotics are biomechanical, medical devices address your specific foot and gait imbalances. Thee devices are made by skilled technicians based on a Gait scan and Scancast 3D of your foot together with examination findings that we send to the lab. Custom orthotics fit comfortably into shoes by simply put on top or removing the manufacturer’s insole and replacing it with the orthotics.
What do my feet have to do with it?
Like the foundation of a house, your feet support the wet of everything above them, which means that when a small problem develops in your feet a subtle change occurs in the entire framework of your body. These changes cause a chain reaction throughout your posture while your stand and walk, placing stress and strain on joints, muscles and tendons in your fee, knees, hops or even the low back.
A custom orthotic will help reduce pain and discomfort by enhancing your body’s natural movements. We design custom orthotics are made for your unique needs and add to your general well-being.
How do they help?
Custom orthotics help your body restore a natural balance and normal movement patterns, thereby reducing strain, pain and discomfort. For optimal results, a custom orthotic should be worn on a daily basis inside quality, supportive footwear. We will provide specific instructions on how to gradually increase wearing time for activities of daily living and/or for specific activities such as running or sports.
