Are Orthotics Right for You?

Feet are the foundation to your body; similar to that of a skyscraper they support the weight of everything above them. Small problems in your feet can cause a change in the way you walk and therefore cause a chain reaction of adjustments in your posture and walking mechanics. This leads to increase stress on the joints higher up in your body and to sometimes more serious problems.

What do Orthotics Do?

Similar to what corrective eye glasses do, Orthotics are biomechanical medical insoles that are custom made to correct the imbalances of your feet. Imbalances such as SUPINATED and PRONATED feet are the most commonly seen problems. As well as:

  • localized foot pain
  • bunions or hammer toes
  • arch and heel pain, plantar fascitis
  • leg and knee pain
  • hip, back and even neck pain

Most extended health care insurance plans fully cover the cost of custom Orthotics. Refer to your insurance plan for more details.
