CUSTOM-MADE ORTHOTICS PROVIDED ADDED VALUE VS PRE-FABS

According to an old proverb, there are two things you should always be willing to invest heavily in: a great bed and a comfortable pair of shoes. After all, if you’re not in one, chances are you’re in the other. It’s hard to argue against that advice, but according to New Minas-based podiatrist Caroline Leverett, there might be something to add to it. That something, says Leverett, is a custom foot orthotic.

A foot orthotic is a device that is inserted into your shoe to support, align, prevent, or accommodate foot deformities and improve foot function. “Store-bought inserts may be helpful if you’re just looking for a little bit of extra cushioning or support,” she says, “but that’s really where their benefit ends. Over-the-counter inserts won’t actually correct the biomechanical causes of your pain, and that’s where custom foot orthotics really add value.”
