Custom Orthotics

What are Orthotics?

Prescription orthotics look like insoles, but are biomechanical medical appliances that are custom made to correct your specific foot imbalance. Orthotics work on your feet much like glasses work on your eyes –they reduce stress and strain on your body by bringing your feet back into proper alignment. Orthotics fit into your shoes as comfortably as an insole – and they have the advantage of having been made from precise imprints of your feet.

What do my feet have to do with it?

Your feet have a direct impact on the rest of your body. Like the foundation of a house, your feet support the weight of everything above them. When a small problem develops in your feet, a subtle change in the way you walk will cause a chain reaction of adjustments in your posture and walking mechanics. These changes can put stress on joints higher up in your body, and lead to more serious problems. Footmaxx custom orthotics help rebalance your feet, reducing pain and discomfort by enhancing your body’s natural movements.

How do I know if I have a problem?

The symptoms of poor foot mechanics can include any one of the following:

  • 25% of the bones in your body are in your feet.
  • Bunions, hammer toes
  • Arch / Heel pain
  • Leg / Knee pain
