Orthotics are custom made inserts (insoles) that help to correct and support structural problems in the foot and ankle such as high arches or flat feet, ankle imbalances or deformities. Common conditions treated include plantar fasciitis, achilles tendonosis, shin splints, heel spurs, patellarfemoral syndrome, and osteoarthritis. A properly fitted orthotic can help to alleviate pain, improve gait and overall posture by aligning the bones and joints of the foot, ankle, knee and lower back. Even as a healthy person, you may need more support than you think to stand on your own two feet. Custom-made orthotics establishes a neutral foot foundation to restore proper foot function. After all, your feet are the foundation of your body!
