Why Orthotics?

Agility Physical Therapy and Sports Medicine Why OrthicsMuch of the worlds population walks around in shoes. These shoes tend to make our feet just a little bit weaker than they should be. Over time and with weight fluctuation, like with pregnancy or growth spurts, our feet can become stressed. These stresses lead to a flattening of the arch along your foot and that decreases your body’s ability to absorb shock.

Orthotics can be custom made for your foot for around $300. Semi-custom heat moldable orthotics can support your foot for around $50. Which one is best is determined by the amount of damage your feet have suffered. About 90% of all persons can wear a Semi-Custom model just fine.
