Your feet support the weight of your entire body. So when your feet are in pain, your whole body suffers. Foot orthotics provide extra support and cushion to your feet so they can support you properly. Not only do they provide relief your foot pain but also help manage knee pain, heel pain, and arch pain.
You might be wondering why you need custom made orthotics for it. Why not go for the regular ones? Well here’s why and how custom made orthotics can manage most foot problems:
They’re made for your medical condition
While shoe inserts can give you temporary relief, they won’t completely solve your problem. Custom orthotics are medical devices that are made for your specific medical condition. If you have chronic pain, you’ll first visit a doctor who’ll prescribe you orthotics based on your condition. This way, custom orthotics are more efficient and effective in relieving your pain than simple inserts bought from a store.
They provide support where you need it
Since they’re made according to the doctor’s prescription, they provide extra support and cushion exactly where your foot needs it.

Correct your foot abnormalities
