Foot orthotics are shoe inserts that can be custom-made or purchased over the counter. Custom-made orthotics are considered more practical and are usually made with higher quality than pre-made orthotics.
Custom-made orthotics help with:
- Correcting abnormal walk or gait
- Reducing pain
- Preventing and protecting foot deformity’s
- Foot alignment positioning
- Pressure on the foot is diminished reduced
- Foot mechanics are improved
