Orthotics or Arch Supports
Orthotics or Arch Support are very helpful for the feet, knees, hips, back and sometimes the head. The Doctor examines your feet and may scan them to determine the need. He may also check your shoes for wear which occurs with problems of the feet. Pains in the arches, heels, top of the feet, gait abnormalities are among the more common symptoms of feet problems.
If it is determined that you are a candidate for orthotics a mold will be made or a scan will be done. The orthotics made will help all your individual foot problems for each foot. The result is a comfortable orthotic that will really help you.
Store bought orthotics are a one size fits all approach. They are made by foot size and with only one correction to an orthotic for the common foot problem of fallen arches. Most problems of the feet, including the common fallen arch, require corrections in several areas of an orthotic to achieve the best support. Also, not all people with the same foot size have the same foot problems.
We work with reputable Orthotic companies. So, in the rare case that the orthotic in not right, the company will fix it at no charge within the first 3 to 6 months.
