why orthotics?

An Orthosis is any device used to realign the body, providing support or restoring lost function.

Prescribed orthotic insoles successfully reduce pain, improve bio-mechanical function by correcting abnormal joint alignment, protecting you from further injury and allowing you to continue the sport or activity you love.  Think of them as the scaffolding that holds a flagpole upright while the cement hardens.  Orthotic insoles are only prescribed in conjunction with exercises to improve your muscular control and balance.

Offloading key painful areas of your feet through pressure redistribution results in increased walking and activity.

Just like prescription spectacles, each orthotic insole is designed to providing the appropriate level of correction to reflect the needs of each foot.
