Custom Orthotic Inserts

THE KEY TO BETTER HEALTH COULD BE RIGHT UNDER YOUR TOES

What do my feet have to do with it?

Your feet have a direct impact on the rest of your body. Like the foundation of a house, your feet support the weight of everything above them. When a small problem develops in your feet, a subtle change in the way you walk will cause a chain reaction in your posture. These changes can put stress on joints higher up in your body that may lead to secondary problems.

A custom orthotic from The Orthotic Group (TOG) will help reduce pain and discomfort by enhancing your body's natural movements. In close partnership with your health care practitioner, TOG designs custom orthotics that are made for your unique needs and add to your general well-being.

WHAT ARE CUSTOM ORTHOTICS?
