Orthotics are devices used to alter or modify foot function. Some orthotics are simple, commercially-made devices, such as cushioned heel cups or insoles, that are sold over the counter in drug stores or other retail establishments. Custom-made orthotics are designed to treat, adjust, and support various bio-mechanical foot disorders such as plantar fasciitis, bunions, neuroma, etc. Thus, the most effective orthotics are custom-made devices, as they are crafted to meet the specific needs of a particular individual. At Sharp Shapes Health, we create custom-made orthotics using an impression of the foot called a cast, which duplicates any misalignments in foot structure. Using the cast and computer technology, our mechnicians design a custom device that balances any deformities and corrects misalignments.
