What Are Custom Orthotics?
Custom or prescription orthotics are generally one of two types, functional orthotics or accommodative orthotics. Functional orthotics are created to treat biomechanical foot issues, or injuries like shin splints and tendinitis, and are generally rigid plastic or carbon fiber. Accommodative or soft orthotics are designed to provide cushioning and support, often as treatments for diabetic foot ulcers or painful calluses.
Unlike the shoe inserts that are sold in drugstores, custom orthotics are specially made for the contours of your feet and designed for the way that you move.
