What Is A Custom Orthotic?

A custom orthotic is a device designed to align the foot and ankle into the most anatomically efficient position. They look like insoles, but are biomechanical medical appliances that are custom made to correct your specific foot imbalance. Custom orthotics work on your feet much like glasses work on your eyes – they reduce stress and strain on your body by bringing your feet back into proper alignment. The plastic body of the custom orthotic helps to re-align the foot by redirecting and reducing certain motion that takes place during the gait cycle. Orthotics improve proprioception – sensory input to the foot muscle - and hence prevent injuries. Custom orthotics fit into your shoes as comfortably as an insole – and they have the advantage of having been made from precise imprints of your feet.

The benefits of wearing one include better posture, better mobility and pain relief as well as the prevention of long-term health problems associated with displacement and bad bone positioning.

Knee braces

Knee braces are supports that you wear for a painful or injured knee. There are four main kinds of knee braces.

  • Prophylactic braces - are designed to protect knees from injuries during contact sports like football.
  • Functional braces – are meant to give support to knees that have already been injured.
  • Rehabilitative braces - limit harmful knee movement while a knee is healing after an injury or surgery.
  • Unloader/ offloader braces are designed to provide relief to people who have arthritis in their knees.
