DIY Custom Foot Orthotics

DIY Custom Foot Orthotics

Arizona Orthotics answers the phone: “Good Morning, Arizona Orthotics.”

Customer: “Can you send me the DIY instructions so I can make my own foot impressions?”

Arizona Orthotics: “No. You’re not qualified to make your own foot impressions.”

Customer: “But when I Google DIY custom foot orthotics, there are more than 80,000 results!”

Arizona Orthotics: “Yes, but here’s the problem. All of these DIY products are a complete waste of money.”

Customer: “Why’s that?”

Arizona Orthotics: “Because the way the 3D impression of your feet is made is incredibly important. It’s not as simple as sticking your foot into some foam and sending this back to the lab. Sadly, most DIY products tell you to stand in the soft foam which means you’re making an impression of your deformed foot.”

Customer: “Deformed foot?”

Arizona Orthotics: “Yes. Your deformed foot. When you standing, gravity plus your body weight force your arch down and flatten your foot; this is the problem position of your foot. Making an impression of this foot alignment means the DIY custom foot orthotic will support your deformed foot; pointless.”

Customer: “Okay, but I saw one that instructs me to sit when I make the impression. What’s wrong with that one?”

Arizona Orthotics: “That’s better, but it’s not good enough. The impression of each foot must be made in a specific sequence which requires training. Think about this for a moment… If you needed a crown for a decayed tooth, would you even consider making your own impression for the crown instead of going to the dentist?

Customer: “Of course not!”

Arizona Orthotics: “This same expertise is required to make an accurate 3D impression of your feet and you’re simply not trained to make this impression.”

Customer: “So how would you make the impressions if I came into your office?”

Arizona Orthotics: “Great question. It’s called MASS Position; the arch-up alignment of each foot is captured by a unique sequence of semi-weight-bearing impressions that replicate healthy stance-phase gait. In other words, the impression is designed to capture your foot in the position that allows force to travel through it with ease while you’re walking.”

Customer: “Whoa, that’s a lot.”

Arizona Orthotics: It’s not as simple as they want you to believe. Are you near a computer?”

Customer: “Yes.”

Arizona Orthotics: “Watch this video and you’ll quickly see exactly how WE do it and understand why YOU can’t do this yourself, https://youtu.be/_8Xo46tacLI?t=32s

– After a minute of silence, the customer returned to the phone –

Customer: “Interesting. So why do they even sell these DIY custom foot orthotics?”

Arizona Orthotics: “Because most people believe All Orthotics Are Created Equal which is a lie and the fact that they make money. They don’t care if you get the best product or even care if you get better!”

Customer: “Thanks. I actually just booked an appointment for Thursday right from your site .”

Arizona Orthotics: “Look forward to meeting with you. Goodbye.”
