There are mass-produced orthotics you can buy at your neighborhood drugstore, and you’ve probably experienced what it’s like to use them. It’s like taking a single medication to treat all the ailments you have ever had: it simply doesn’t work.
Mass-produced orthotics never really work, and if they do, the benefits are limited and short-lived because no two people have the exact same feet. A combination of the unique characteristics of your feet, like your arch height, gait, and accompanying foot issues means your feet benefit best from custom orthotics, not mass-produced, generic ones.

Your foot has a very complex structure, which is why it needs all the support it can get. Day in and day out, your feet carry you to where you need to be. Is it any wonder that your feet can develop problems when not taken care of properly? Custom orthotics provide enhanced foot support to ensure that everything is in proper alignment.
Relief From Pain and Better Shock Absorption
Good orthotics have great shock-absorbing capabilities and direct it away from areas of your foot that may be painful. Custom orthotics can relieve pain from existing foot problems. For instance, people with foot osteoarthritis really benefit from custom orthotics, as well as those with knee osteoarthritis.
Correct Foot Issues
Custom orthotics are designed to address your specific foot issues. Biomechanical issues like pronation and supination are effectively addressed with custom orthotics. High arches and flat feet can also be addressed. Even foot deformities may be addressed using custom orthotics. Your orthotics are customized to your specific needs, making them ideal for you – regardless of your underlying issue.
The comfort you get from custom orthotics is superior to any other orthotics available on the market. Designed to accommodate the unique structure of your foot and address existing foot issues, there is no reason to feel discomfort with them. You should be able to walk and run with them with no issues.
Enhance Athletic Performance
A well-aligned body is in a better position to perform. When you’re well-balanced, you are able to run faster, jump higher, and move better overall. This enhances your performance, and also reduces the risk of injury.
Many people think custom orthotics are for athletes only, or those with active lifestyles. Although they can help you become more active, custom orthotics can also benefit anyone who simply wants to take good care of their feet – regardless of their activity level.
