Why should I be using custom orthotics? Orthotics are a quality-of-life improvement for anyone, young, old, athletic or otherwise. They improve posture, balance and physical performance in all aspects of life, including sports, stand-up work environments and outdoor activities. They are used to prevent foot-related symptoms as much as they’re used to treat them. They can help prevent or treat low back pain, hip pain, knee pain and neck pain, and are one of the best ways to deal with foot conditions such as bunions, heel spurs and plantar fasciitis.
Why shouldn’t I use over-the-counter orthotics?
Over-the-counter orthotics are designed to be acceptable to as many people as possible using materials believed to be the most comfortable and visually appealing—super soft, fancy blue gel, etc.—but that are not necessarily the most beneficial. When it comes to your health, though, we believe that nothing short of custom-made will do. We want to protect your health so that you can enjoy what makes you happy, pain-free. We craft custom-made orthotics based on scans made by a high-tech 3D scanner with pinpoint accuracy to protect you, not the masses, using materials especially selected to suit your needs.
How do I start using Foot Levelers?
It’s really simple! If you’re a patient, just start by finding a healthcare professional, and then tell your new doctor that you want to get started using Foot Levelers orthotics. Once you have scheduled and fulfilled an appointment, all you have to do is wait for your orthotics to arrive in the mail.
What process is used to capture information about my feet?
Our experienced technicians craft your orthotics based on industry-standard foam impressions or scans that produce high resolution, 3D images. These images are produced using the our imaging device, which uses the laser triangulation technique, one of the most accurate measurement techniques available. These high-end techniques ensure your orthotics fit perfectly to your feet.
