Why you need custom orthotics

Custom orthotics prescribed by a qualified practitioner provide an exact fit to your unique foot. Only a registered practitioner can properly assess your feet, gait, capture a 3D cast of your feet and write a prescription with precise accommodations to address specific foot problems you might have. By making adjustments for foot deformities, injuries and improving your gait with a custom orthotic, you’ll feel better from the ground up.
