Orthotics improve foot functionality by correcting misalignments. There are three categories of orthotics:
RIGID ORTHOTICS - by controlling foot motion, these orthotics are very useful when there is poor support in the center of the shoe
1. Dress Shoes with low sides
2. Sore feet that area relieved with arch support
3. In skates and golf shoes.
4. In loose fitting boots such as work boots, hiking boots and rubber boots.
SEMI-RIGID ORTHOTICS - also control foot motion, but provide cushioning
1. Pressure issues such as callouses
2. Weak ankles, flat feet, shin splints, hip, knee and back pain
3. People working long hours on hard surfaces such as nurses and factory workers.
SOFT ORTHOTICS - absorbs shock, increases balance and relieves pressure in painful areas
1. People who have suffered from trauma.
4. Foot Deformity
