What are Orthotics?

Orthotics are devices which support or improve functions of movable parts of the body including the feet and ankles. A proper biomechanical assessment is required to determine the exact needs of each individual.

Functional Orthotics

This type of orthotic is usually used to decrease pain and increase stability. They typically support rear and midfoot joints and help patients overcome overuse injuries. They are meant to be functional while reducing impact to the wearer when walking or running.
