Who Needs Custom Orthotics ?
The symptoms of poor foot mechanics can include any one of the following: localized foot pain, bunions, hammer toes, arch/heel pain, leg/knee pain, hip or back pain – even neck pain?
What Kind Of Shoe Do I Need For My Custom Orthotics ?
For the most part any shoe that has a removable insole will work with your custom orthotic. Just remove the insole that came with the shoe and replace it with the custom orthotic.
Why Do My New Custom Orthotics Feel Uncomfortable ?
Since the custom orthotic works to realign the structure of your foot you may feel pressure in some areas as the custom orthotic attempts to do its job. For this reason custom orthotics should be worn in two hour intervals and slowly extend the wear time over a period of two weeks.
Will My Muscles Get Weaker Wearing Custom Orthotics ?
Custom orthotics will not reduce muscles tone. They will help position your foot so you will be using the right muscles at the right time, minimizing fatigue and allowing your muscles to be used more efficiently.
