Like the foundation of a house, your feet support everything above them. A small problem with your feet changes how you walk and causes a chain reaction in your posture. Knee, hip or low back pain may be caused by a problem in the biomechanics of your feet.
Custom orthotics look like insoles but are biomechanical medical devices that are custom made to your specific needs. Like glasses work for your eyes, custom orthotics make corrections to the workings of your feet. They reduce muscle strain, spread out pressure points and reduce abnormal forces on the ankles, knees, hips and spine.
Custom orthotics are fit using a dry foam cast to create a perfect cast of the feet. An.examination of the feet and a postural evaluation also provide valuable information for the creation of your custom orthotics.
