A custom orthotic is a device designed to align the foot and ankle into the most anatomically efficient position. They look like insoles, but are biomechanical medical appliances that are custom made to correct your specific foot imbalance. Custom orthotics work on your feet much like glasses work on your eyes - they reduce stress and strain on your body by bringing your feet back into proper alignment.
The symptoms of poor foot mechanics can include any one of the following: Localized foot pain, bunions, hammer toes, arch/heel pain, leg/knee pain, hip or back pain - even neck pain. It's a good idea to talk with one of our chiropractors to see if you could benefit from orthotics.
