The simple answer to that is NO! If your feet are not perfect (like most people) then odds are there is an imbalance with your gait (how you walk), which most likely means you have pain in your feet, knees, hips, or back. One of the many benefits of wearing foot orthotics is to improve function, which in turn makes the muscles, tendons, and ligaments function properly and can actually make them stronger, not weaker!
