Orthotics are custom-made inserts that comfortably fit into shoes or sandals. They are designed to support and improve the functioning of feet, and help establish optimal mechanics for the feet, ankles, knees, hips and/or spine.
Orthotics are prescribed to patients suffering from chronic foot, lower limb and low back issues or to athletes to help maximize performance during sport. They are often beneficial in the prevention of osteoarthritis of the knees and hips.
