It is important to realize that your feet have a direct impact on your body and support you with every step. Research has shown that even the smallest abnormality in foot function can have a large impact on the joints in our body, and may be the cause of foot, ankle, knee, hip and back pain.
Orthotics are inserts that comfortably fit into shoes. A foam cast, plaster cast or computerized scan is used to take an imprint of your foot to ensure that the orthotic is specifically designed for you. The custom made orthotics provide support, improve the functioning of your feet and can relieve pain.
