Orthotics should be more than just a cushion for your feet, they should promote optimum posture and enhance chiropractic adjustments thus resulting in longer-term relief.
Over-the-counter orthotics support only one arch in your foot. Unfortunately, when only one arch is being supported the problem shifts to another part of your body. Customized orthotics support all three arches in your foot by provide support for more than 26 bones, 33 joints, and more than 100 muscles, tendons and ligaments. Customized orthotics also maintain the structure of the plantar vault to balance the entire body.

A foot assessment allows you to see how customized orthotics will help you live your life in balance.
