Custom orthotics are simply the best way to correct subtle imbalances in the foot and ankle that can lead to running injuries. A custom orthotic is not just an arch support or a custom foot bed with extra cushioning.  A custom running orthotic is a completely custom made medical device designed to control abnormal motion, correct for alignment problems and correct faulty biomechanics that can lead to running-related injury. 

When a sports medicine specialist performs your biomechanical exam, the sports medicine doctor takes numerous measurements of of the positions and angles of the feet, ankle and legs. Based on all of this information, the podiatrist makes a plaster mold of the feet and writes a prescription for the orthotic fabrication. The orthotic lab uses all of this to create an exact replica of your feet and then custom forms the orthotics device that will correct any problems in alignment.  This can help to increase your running efficiency and decrease the risk of running injury.
