Your feet directly impact the rest of your body and support you with each step. The average person takes 8,000 to 10,000 steps per day, which is approximately 115,000 miles (>4x the earth’s circumference) in a lifetime! Running increases the pressure on your feet to 3-4x your body weight. Ankle, knee, hip, and back pain can all result from abnormal foot function or ill-fitting shoes! More than 75% of people will experience foot problems at some point in their life.
Orthotics are biomechanical appliances custom made for your specific foot imbalance(s). They fit inside your shoe as a comfortable insole and are designed to properly align your feet, thereby reducing strain on the remainder of your body.
They can be designed in a variety of styles to fit your lifestyle needs, whether for dress shoes, casual office wear, athletics, or safety shoes!
The Orthotic Group also offers several lines of quality brand name footwear to complement your orthotics. View their online catalogue here: TOG Footwear Catologue
