Custom foot orthotics are specifically designed to help with issues you have in regards to walking and foot alignment. Foot orthotics are custom fit and fit perfectly in your shoe to the bones in your feet and your ankles. The orthotics provide stress relief on your feet provide extra support since your feet are responsible for balancing 98% of your body to relieve stress from the rest of your body. Y

The benefits to foot orthotics include support for your arches, even weight distribution, and cushion for your feet. If your feet are in constant pain after walking or physical activity, our doctors at Mercer-Ocean Podiatry encourages you to get custom foot orthotics.

While you can get basic shoe orthotics from your local sporting goods stores, they are not as effective and don’t fit perfectly for your feet. We advise all of our patients to only use custom orthotics made to fit your shoe and your feet perfectly.
