Your feet are the foundation for the rest of your body. They do support your entire body weight so taking care of them and making sure they are properly supported is incredibly important to you moving pain-free.
With this in mind, there are a number of reasons why orthotics can be a good idea. The simplest definition of an orthotic is that they provide added support to the foot. They help the foot return to a more normal movement pattern with the ultimate goal of recruiting the right balance of muscles to work in conjunction with each other.
