As arch support designed and manufactured to specifically fit an individual’s feet, the goal of custom orthotics most often is to improve a person’s mobility and stability and eliminate pain. These inserts for your shoes are carefully designed based upon a mold of your feet, as well as an analysis of your gait and lower body biomechanics.

Custom orthotics have been helpful in relieving discomfort and pain related to several conditions, including the following:

  • Metatarsalgia – an overuse injury that causes pain in the ball of the foot.

  • Patellofemoral knee pain – a syndrome that causes pain at the front of the knee around the knee cap.

  • Shin splints – exercise related condition causing pain along the tibia, also called the shin bone.  Click here for more detail

Properly made custom orthotics can be extremely beneficial in relieving pain and improving posture and gait, all of which can cause pain in the feet, legs and back. Issues caused by high arches, flat feet or other deformities may be alleviated with custom orthotics.
