A: Orthotics are devices that are placed inside your shoes, in order to help realign your foot and allow it to function in the most optimal way possible. They are used to treat many painful foot conditions. Orthotics help to redistribute the pressure that is placed on the bottom of your foot, and help to improve the faulty foot mechanics that can lead to things like arthritis and bunion and hammertoe deformities. Think of orthotics as doing for your feet
what your eyeglasses do for your eyes–allow them to function in the best possible manner. You can view the video on our “flat feet” page to learn more about orthotics.
