What can Orthotics help with?

The primary purpose of Custom Orthotics is to provide proper alignment, support and cushioning to the feet. In addition, they can help alleviate foot pain, correct biomechanical imbalances and provide stability for various conditions, including plantar fasciitis, flat feet, high arches and overpronation.

Foot pain

Orthotics can provide cushioning and support to alleviate pain caused by conditions like plantar fasciitis, metatarsalgia or sesamoiditis.

Arch support

For individuals with fallen arches (flat feet) or high arches, Orthotics can help distribute weight evenly and provide the necessary support, potentially reducing discomfort.

Pronation or supination issues

Custom Orthotics can assist in correcting overpronation (inward rolling of the foot) or oversupination (outward rolling of the foot), which may contribute to ankle instability or other related problems.

Bunions and hammertoes

Orthotics can provide padding and relieve pressure on these conditions, which may help alleviate discomfort.

Shin splints

Custom Orthotics can help reduce the strain on the lower leg muscles and provide better shock absorption, potentially assisting in the management of shin splints.

Knee and hip pain

By improving foot and ankle alignment, Orthotics may help alleviate stress and strain on the knees and hips, potentially reducing pain in these areas.

How are Custom Orthotics made?
