Can custom foot orthotics cause hip pain?

No. Generally speaking, a properly made custom foot orthotic should not cause hip pain because the force traveling up into the hip joint is handled by the custom foot orthotic at the foundation – the foot.

However, when custom foot orthotics are not made to properly match your corrected arch-up foot shape and calibrated to flex, you have no way to control foot function. In this case, the shock-wave of force as each foot hits the ground travels up into the hip. Over time this wear-and-tear stress does have the potential to cause hip pain.
