Orthotics - Custom
When lower leg and foot pain becomes a problem, patients look to custom orthotics for treatment. Because causes and types of pain can vary, there are many different forms of orthotics, each with a unique function.
How can Custom Orthotics help foot pain?
When the natural balance of the lower body becomes altered by over-pronation (inward rolling-motion of the foot during walking or running), problems such as heel, lower-back or knee pain can occur. Estimates suggest as many as 70% of Americans suffer from this condition. Custom orthotics (also known as shoe inserts, orthotic insoles or orthoses) are placed within the shoe to correct complications of over-pronation and restore the foot’s natural function.
