I am able to build custom orthotics that you can take home that day. These orthotics are made to support proper alignment in your feet. I have found that if your feet stay well adjusted, the rest of your spine tends to stay well adjusted longer. If you choose to get a pair of orthotics, extra time may need to be scheduled on a future visit.
I will first check your shoes. I have found that orthotics are only as good as the shoes they are in. I will test your shoes to determine if they have supportive soles and if they bend where they should, or at the base of your toes rather than in the middle of your arch. If you need new shoes, I will show you how to test shoes so you can check them before you leave the store. Once we have determined that you have a good pair of shoes, I will adjust your feet. Then, I will form the orthotics to your feet inside your shoes. You will take a short 5-7 minute walk while the orthotics set. Finally, I will check to make sure you held the adjustment well. If not, the orthotics will be remade before you leave.
