An orthotic exam includes a thorough medical history, a physical assessment of your feet and several diagnostic tools. The doctor will have you perform a GAIT analysis, to best assess how your feet move and where additional support is needed. Also, a foam impression of your feet is taken to best accommodate the orthotic to your individual foot shape. This assessment is a great way to determine if custom orthotics will help relieve your problem.
