Why Do My Feet Hurt?

Your feet are made of 26 bones connected by a tissue network of ligaments, muscles, and tendons. If you have a normal arch, you're likely a normal pronator, meaning you'll do best in a stability shoe that offers moderate pronation control.

However, the slightest malalignment of foot bones causes the foot structure to break down, or overpronate.

Overpronation can cause:

  • tired flat feet
  • weak ankles
  • crooked toes
  • bunions
  • corns
  • calluses
  • arch strain
  • heel pain
  • low back pressure
  • neck pain

Malalignment can also cause underpronation.

Can Pronation Be Controlled? Yes, with Prescription Orthotics.

Prescription orthotics are medically engineered shoe inserts that gently keep foot bones and tissues properly aligned.

Prescription orthotics hold the foot in its most neutral position to control overpronation and prevent the foot's structure from breaking down.

Why Prescription? Why Not Over-The-Counter?

Some sports shops and pharmacies sell shoe inserts that are not medically designed and individually made for you.
Prescription foot orthotics are custom made for your feet only!
Your doctor thoroughly examines your special foot problems. He or she then takes casts, or impressions of your feet.
Technicians use your impressions and your doctor's prescription to custom craft your orthotics.
