What are Orthotics?

Orthotics are shoe inserts that are intended to correct an abnormal, or irregular, walking pattern.

They perform functions that make standing, walking, and running more comfortable and efficient, by slightly altering the angles at which the foot strikes a walking or running surface.

The orthotics are fabricated from a custom (plaster of paris) mold of the feet. As the patient wears the orthotics the foot is held in the correct position, reducing the aches and pains which allows the foot to function properly .
