Common Questions – Bracing & Orthotics
What are the benefits of a custom orthotic versus one off the shelf?
A custom-fit orthotic, an artificial support or brace for the limbs or spine, has several advantages over off-the-shelf inserts. They last longer, are better for feet that are not a standard form or size, and can be personally fit with a computerized foot analysis to ensure individualized correction of biomechanical faults. Activity levels and body mass can also be taken into account when ordering custom orthotics.
