Orthotics

A custom orthotic is a device designed to align the foot and ankle into the most anatomically efficient position. They look like insoles, but are biomechanical medical appliances that are custom made to correct your specific foot imbalance. Custom orthotics work on your feet much like glasses work on your eyes - they reduce stress and strain on your body by bringing your feet back into proper alignment. The plastic body of the custom orthotic helps to re-align the foot by redirecting and reducing certain motion that takes place during the gait cycle. Custom orthotics fit into your shoes as comfortably as an insole - and they have the advantage of having been made from precise imprints of your feet.

Who Needs Orthotics?

Those who suffer from:

  • Localized foot pain
  • Bunions, hammer toes
  • Arch/heel pain
  • Leg/knee pain
  • Hip or back pain - even neck pain

One of our chiropractors will conduct a thorough assessment and determine if you are in need for orthotics and the chiropractor will take personal imprints of your feet to assure that your orthotics are customized to your needs.

Please note: most insurance companies will cover the majority of the cost of your orthotics. However you MUST have a medical doctor’s prescription of orthotics BEFORE you come in for your assessment with the chiropractor.
