Your feet are the foundation that support your entire body therefore it makes sense that foot problems could affect the rest of your body.
Custom orthotics are external devices used to modify and support the structural and functional characteristics of the neuromusculoskeletal system. Many patients present to us with pain in the feet, knees, hips or low back. Custom foot orthotics are an external device designed to fit into the footbed of your shoe. They provide support by redistributing ground reaction forces and redistributing weight. After a thorough assessment custom orthotics are casted and designed by our skilled chiropractor. We create a 3D model of the cast and a unique product is made that will help you, our patient get back to living your best life, pain-free!
