Who needs a foot orthotic?
A foot orthotic can prove to be beneficial for you if you have biomechanical issues in your feet that result in pain or discomfort. When the muscles, bones, joints, ligaments or tendons in your feet are not functioning optimally to lend proper alignment while you stand or move, an orthotic can provide adequate support and prevent complications, fatigue and chronic pain. Although checking with a foot specialist and undergoing a thorough assessment is essential before you are prescribed orthotics.
