If your orthotics are causing you pain and you feel as if you cannot get used to them, please let us know so we can make any necessary adjustments.
Do I have to wear foot orthotics all the time?
Once you get used to wearing the orthotics, it’s recommended that you use them any time you’re active. It’s also recommended that you don’t stop wearing them abruptly once your feet are used to having them.
How do you measure my feet?
We’ll get measurements and do a gait analysis of your feet while they’re in a neutral position meaning they’re not supporting any weight. Advanced 3D scanning or plaster mold are typically used to measure each part of your foot with the greatest possible precision.
