Your foot is made up of 52 bones and 66 joints, all held together by a complex of muscles and ligaments. The smallest of imbalances can result in pain and dysfunction. If left untreated, these issues can result in chronic pain which can prevent you from maintaining your active lifestyle.
Custom orthotics are biomechanical medical appliances that look like insoles. They are custom made to correct your specific foot imbalance, thus reducing stress and strain on your body and bringing your feet back into proper alignment.
