A foot orthotic is a device that is placed inside a shoe to help support the arch of the foot to control abnormal bio-mechanical forces that can lead to foot, ankle, knee and even low back pain. While some patients can utilize over-the-counter type arch supports, other patients require custom molded devices.
Each patient is recommended the type of foot orthotic best suited to support the bio-mechanical abnormalities in their particular case.
