Are all Orthotic’s equal?

The answer is definitely no!!!  A functional orthosis is made to re-align the bones and joints of the feet to allow better function of the muscles, the feet and legs.  It is important to have a proper casting of the feet in the corrected position for the orthosis to be made correctly.

 

A custom orthosis is not something that a salesperson measures your foot and then goes into the back room and brings out an arch support for you, like many stores will do.  They do say it is a custom device and charge a lot of money for them.  Be Careful!!!  A true functional orthosis takes time to make by a qualified lab.  It is not done in a few days.

 

For further information on orthosis, or to be evaluated to see if functional orthosis will benefit you, give our office a call.  760-568-0108 or schedule an appointment online
