A new pair of shoes is no substitute for orthotics

Orthotics, either the over the counter type (our office recommends Powersteps over any other), semi custom quadrasteps, or by prescription, work to align your feet to avoid injuries and prevent pain from returning after an injury.  Whether it is under or over pronation where your ankles and feet turn inwards, or injury recovery, orthotics correct these imbalances.  Although it is important to replace your shoes every 350-500 miles due to wear and tear of the cushioning and support, there is no substitute for support that is custom for your feet.   For more information on orthotics, click here.  If you want to know if custom orthotics vs over the counter orthotics are for you, make an appointment with one of our doctors.
