Orthotics are shoe implants that aid in the support of the foot and back. They’re designed to correct imbalances in walking or gait of the wearer. These can range from partial covering of the foot such as the toe or arch, to a full covering which supports all parts of the foot. Orthotics can be purchased over the counter or can be customized with the patient’s specific foot in mind. While more supportive, custom orthotics are typically more expensive than the over the counter version. Quality Chiropractic offers custom orthotics specifically crafted for the individual patient.

Once corrected by orthotics, these affected areas are able to function normally and pain is reduced. Orthotics are beneficial for many conditions including:
