Custom orthotics are shoe insoles designed to correct your feet’s alignment
custom orthotics work?
The overall aim of orthotic therapy is to reduce stress and strain on your feet by bringing them back into proper alignment. The body of the custom orthotic redirects your foot and reduces harmful motion. The orthotics fit into your shoe just like an insole, making them a breeze to wear every day.
Custom orthotics can be used to help treat a wide variety of foot, ankle, knee, hip, and back pain. Your chiropractor will determine if orthotics are appropriate for you.
Common foot conditions we treat with custom orthotics include:
Custom orthotics start with a thorough exam and a computerized scan of your foot
