Orthotics are defined as any device used to support and align a part of the body. A foot orthotic is a device that can be discretely inserted into a shoe to support, align, or accommodate foot deformities or poor foot mechanics. Orthotics can be premade (over-the-counter) or custom made from a three-dimensional cast. Custom-made foot orthotics are precision medical devices that are custom-made to correct your specific imbalance and biomechanical misalignment (e.g. high arch or flat feet).

- Orthotics can be use for treatment of a variety of lower extremity conditions such as Plantar Fasciitis, shin-splints, bone-spurs, knee, hip and low back pain and others.
- Orthotics can relieve pain, improve skeletal alignment or improve the function of your foot and lower limbs.
- Orthotics can also improve athletic and occupational performance by realigning poor alignment and reducing excess strain on the feet and lower legs.
