Custom biomechanical foot orthotics create a more normal, functional coexistence of the foot and leg. This is done by maintaining the proper anatomical angular relationships between different segments of the foot and leg by controlling abnormal or excessive motion. Foot orthotics are worn inside the shoe. The goal of foot orthotic therapy is to position the foot in an optimum position, control excessive motion, reduce pressure areas on the bottom of the foot caused by faulty mechanics, and/or accommodate fixed deformities or at-risk areas.
