Custom orthotics help correct the position of your feet

If you have foot, leg, or back problems, you may want to look into getting custom orthotics. These special shoe inserts (or shoes) are custom made to fit your feet and correct any issues that are causing discomfort. Common conditions that orthotics can treat include plantar fasciitis, high arches, flat feet, bursitis, bunions, arthritis, back pain, and more.

If your feet aren’t positioned correctly, it can impact the rest of your body. Custom orthotics help correct the position of your feet by providing additional support in the area of the foot that needs it. They are made from a variety of custom materials depending on the specific issue with your foot. This can make a big difference in your treatment plan and improve your symptoms over time.

Custom orthotics do cost more than a generic shoe insert you buy off the shelf, because they are engineered specifically for you. They also last quite a while, most averaging 2-3 years depending on the amount of use. If you are experiencing daily pain and discomfort, the cost  of custom orthotics is money well-spent. However, it is important to note that they do not always guarantee pain relief, and they are usually a part of a larger treatment plan. Consult with your chiropractor or doctor to discuss the best treatment for you and your condition.
