Do custom foot orthotics help with short legs?

Yes, when made to accommodate for the measured insufficiency.

Only after measuring the unleveling can we best understand how to help.

Ideally we work to correct this with a lift built into the orthotic on the low side – the idea is to level the pelvis and optimize foot function.

However, when the unleveling is beyond 9mm we need to buildup the outside of your shoe as there’s only so much you can put into a shoe and keep the foot inside at the same time.
