Improper function can have significant adverse effects on joints higher up the kinetic chain, eventually even causing misalignments in the spine. Custom orthotics are used to improve foot function and relieve pain.

Unlike over-the-counter insoles, these shoe inserts are custom-made to fit each individual’s needs. With several types available, we can address various foot conditions and lifestyles. Learn more about the process and the special scan offered in our office by watching the following video!
