An orthotic helps to properly align the foot and ankle to reduce pain and dysfunction, and enhance the body’s performance and efficiency. There are several types of orthotics made to fit different shoes and lifestyles.
The feet and ankle joint are the foundation of the body. Their function is essential in supporting the body while standing, walking, and running. Faulty biomechanics beginning in the feet can lead to injury or impairment, and may become a significant contribution to pain/dysfunction in other areas of the body. It is therefore essential to assess biomechanics and gait to determine if you may benefit from custom orthotics. Custom orthotics are individually designed based on a thorough dynamic professional assessment.
