What Foot Orthotics Do


A foot orthotic is a device that can be discretely inserted into the shoe to support, align, prevent and/or accommodate foot abnormalities and improve how the foot functions. We make your unique orthotics from full-standing weight 3-D plaster casts for greater accuracy and reliability and sustained pain-free results.
