Houston Specialist Explains the Use of Custom Orthotics

Orthotics are custom designed insoles for your shoes. The orthotics reposition your foot to allow them to work as efficiently as possible and provide for a stable “base of support” for the rest of your body. They are made from a mold of the foot taken in a “neutral position” that is modified based on a comprehensive biomechanical examination of the lower extremity. You should consider orthotics as a solution if you suffer from bunions, hammertoes, heel or arch pain, Achilles tendonitis, shin splints, tired feet, or any pain in your feet, legs, knees, hips, or back during walking or exercise.
