WHAT ARE PRESCRIPTION ORTHOTICS?
Orthotics are insoles for your shoes that are custom made for a specific individual and in most cases a specific foot or leg problem to correct poor foot mechanics.
Symptoms of poor foot mechanics include:
Localized foot pain
Bunions, hammer toes
Hip or back pain-even neck pain
It is important to correct a small problem in your feet, because a subtle change in the way you walk will cause a chain reaction of adjustments in your posture and walking mechanics. These changes can put stress on joints higher up in your body, and lead to more serious problems.
Orthotics help by restoring the normal balance and alignment of your body by gently correcting foot abnormalities. They reduce problems associated with:
Abnormal forces on the ankles, knees, hips and spine
