Orthotics are medical appliances that are custom made to correct your specific foot imbalance.  They are designed to reduce strain by bringing your feet back into to the proper alignment.  They are made from a foam impression of your feet, and come in a variety of sizes and types to fit comfortably in almost any shoe.   

By wearing orthotics, pressure points, muscle strains and abnormal forces on the ankles, knees, hips and spine are eliminated because the orthotics enable your feet to function properly. 

Pricing for orthotics includes a complete computerized foot and gait analysis, fitting and follow-up. 

We are pleased to offer GaitScan Technology, designed to provide the most accurate prescription possible.

All orders are sent directly over the internet and have a lab production time of six business days.
