Custom Orthotics

Structural imbalances originate in the feet. If we do not address these imbalances, regardless of what other treatments or conditioning we use, whenever we are standing, our posture is imbalanced. This imbalance produces an abnormal mechanical loading on certain joints, tendons, and muscles, increases the likelihood of injury, and accelerates the breakdown or degeneration of parts of the body. This is where custom orthotics come in!

Everything starts with the feet!

There are 3 arches in the foot, all of which are critically important. The arches give the foot the necessary strength to support the body in the most balanced fashion. In most people, one or more arches on each foot have dropped. Most people also have an imbalance between their right and left feet. Even the slightest imbalance will trigger compensatory effects all the way up the structure. In addition, due to gravity, aging, and the incredible amount of stress we put on our feet during our lifetime, our arches fall over time. Because we’re typically one-side-dominant people and engage in both symmetrical and asymmetrical activities, it’s common for our arches to fall at different times in our lives, increasing the imbalance between our feet. This is why we recommend that all people be fitted with custom orthotics as early as possible in life. 

The 3-Arch Advantage of Custom Orthotics

There are 3 arches in your foot. Generic over-the-counter insoles, such as PowerStep or UpStep orthotics, are mass produced, don’t address the underlying cause of pain, and support only 1 arch, which can make symptoms worse. Foot Levelers patented design support all 3 arches, offering proper support to help reduce pain and improve performance. No one-size fits all. Foot Levelers are custom made just for you and your specific needs.
