Orthotics are custom-made inserts that fit inside shoes. Their purpose is to restore natural foot movement. They 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. Faulty foot mechanics may lead to a number of overuse syndromes that can produce localized pain in the foot, ankle, knee, hip or even low back. Foot orthotics help to reduce painful symptoms by improving foot function and efficiency. The foot mechanics are captured using a dynamic computerized gait scan which means the details of the feet are captured during the walking motion, rather than just standing still. This provides a more realistic view of what the foot is doing with each step. From this impression and data, the orthotics are completely customized to the individual’s feet
