Foot Orthotics

Custom Foot Orthotics

 

Foot Orthotics are orthopaedic devices that help change and/or control biomechanical insufficiencies throughout the kinetic chain of the client's base of support. At Garnet Orthopedic Solutions, we are experts in foot orthotic fitting and fabrication techniques which allow us to provide the best solution for you. Whether a custom orthotic, over the counter orthotic, shoe modification or collaboration with another clinician at The OEV Health Quarters we strive to find your solution.  

Orthotics vs. Insoles or Inserts

 

Custom orthotics are very different from footbeds that come with footwear or over the counter orthotics. Insoles, or inserts, are commonly an off-the-shelf product and are typically found in drug stores and other retail stores. They are designed to cushion your step as you walk and provide shock absorption. Although you may find them comfortable, they are not designed to treat or help prevent biomechanical problems to the extent a custom orthotic can assist with.

Orthotics, are designed to relieve pain by realigning and supporting the bones and ligaments of your foot. They restore your foot’s natural function, reduce foot pain, redistribute pressure, and prevent and accommodate foot problems. Our orthotics are custom made to your individual feet to ensure maximum effectiveness. No two orthotics are the same.
