What is an Orthotic Insole?

An orthotic insole or orthotic device is a special custom insole designed to adjust abnormal or irregular walking pattern. Orthotics are not truly or solely “arch supports”, as sometimes they are being described, and their purpose perhaps can be best understood with this in mind. Orthotics perform functions that make standing, walking and running more comfortable and efficient, by alternating the angles at which foot strikes a surface. Orthotics fall into tree categories: primary – to change foot function, protective, and combinations of functional control and protection.

Orthotic Insoles are prescribes as concervative approach to many foot problems, and their use is highly successful, practical treatment form. They are fabricated, after thorough biomechaninal and gait assessment, from various materials to improve foot function and minimize stress forces that could cause foot deformity and pain.
