BAY AREA FOOT & LASER PODIATRY GROUP
Why Choose Us for Custom Orthotics
Did you know that not all custom orthotics are alike? In fact, different orthotics for different purposes can be made especially for you. Getting the best prescription orthotic doesn’t stop after a mold of your feet has been made. Bay Area Foot & Laser Podiatry Group not only takes your diagnosis into consideration, but also the structure and condition of your feet, along with how you spend your time on them, before we order the most fitting orthotics for you.
Why Custom Orthotics
The way you walk is as unique as your footprints. Foot and ankle problems may arise because the structure of your feet, the gait of your walk, or even the shoes you wear aren’t quite right. Orthotics can alleviate your symptoms by changing the pressure on certain areas of your feet. And, while over-the-counter products might help, they can only take you so far. So if being up on your feet is getting you down in your everyday life, then high quality custom orthotics combined with good footwear just might be the answer you’ve been looking for.
