Custom Orthotics and Correct Toes

Orthotics

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. 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. 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.



Correct Toes

The foot’s natural shape changes over time, the toes become elevated and pinched together, resulting in weakened flexor muscles combined with overly tight extensors. Subsequently, natural gait and balance are compromised. The main culprit is rigid footwear. The best way to treat most foot problems is by allowing the foot to function exactly as nature intended. This can be done using a Correct Toes spacer, which spreads the toes to their natural and correct position.
