Custom foot orthotics are an appliance that replaces the existing insole of a shoe to support, correct, accommodate and prevent foot abnormalities to improve the mechanics and function of the foot. When used with appropriate footwear, a custom foot orthotic can be effective to treat a variety of foot and lower extremity conditions. Custom foot orthotics can be manufactured from different materials to fit your desired footwear, from dress shoes to protective footwear, and a variety of sporting footwear such as ski boots and ice skates.
