Do you know what they do and why it’s a good idea to use them?
If not read on.

There are many different types of effective foot orthotics. Some are custom made while others are over-the-counter and designed for specific foot types and symptoms. Depending on your particular needs, your doctor or health professional may recommend orthotics for your feet.

The goals of orthotics are to make your feet feel comfortable in your shoes at all times, while preventing foot pain and providing proper body alignment. With the right orthotic style, you’ll benefit from shock absorption, arch support, cushioning and pressure redistribution.

In combination with proper footwear, orthotics can help you achieve maximum foot comfort and prevent unnecessary injuries to help you maintain a healthy and active lifestyle.
