Orthotics are customized insoles that correct and improve the way your feet strike the ground. Orthotics can reduce the biomechanical strain on your feet and body. They can also relieve alignment problems that lead to foot, ankle, leg, hip, and lower back pain.
A five-minute gait and pressure analysis test can determine whether you are a candidate for orthotics. After a review of the preliminary test results and an explanation of the gait line based on information provided in the analysis, an orthotic module is formed. It will be molded to correct the unique biomechanics of each individual patient and will fit in any shoe. Your orthotics are shipped to you within five to seven days.
