Q
What's the difference between OTC inserts from the store and custom orthotics?

A

The difference between an over-the-counter insert and a custom molded foot orthotic is very similar to eye glasses. You know that something is wrong with your feet (or eyes) and you try to fix it yourself initially with the drugstore variety support, but when that doesn’t get the job done it’s time to go to the expert and get orthotics (or glasses) that are made specifically for you and your unique features!

Your feet are custom to you and deserve to have individualized attention to help create the sturdiest foundation for your body and help put your best foot forward! If you have any other questions regarding our custom orthotics or other services offered, feel free to call us at (630)834-3668.
