The foot is susceptible to many stresses. Foot problems can cause pain, inflammation, or injury. These problems can result in limited movement and mobility. Foot pain is often caused by improper foot function and can be aggravated by being overstretched from running, wearing high heels, poorly fitting shoes, being overweight or other health issues.



Custom orthotics will allow you to stand, walk, and run comfortably. It assists in fighting off pain in the foot, ankle and leg. It improves balance by allowing your feet the necessary support to maintain a functionally correct position. A doctor-designed orthotic will control the alignment and function of your foot. These orthotics will treat or prevent abnormal motion, or rolling, of the foot. By redistributing the pressure on the bottom of your feet, you'll reduce discomfort, pain and calluses.
