The Hazards of Price Shopping For Custom Foot Orthotics

Price Shopping for Custom Foot Orthotics

So, someone just told you custom foot orthotics could help your foot problem.

You run to your computer and start searching for the cheapest custom foot orthotic possible.

WRONG!

If you take this approach and begin your search for the right fit custom foot orthotic based on price alone you are sure to continue suffering.

Here’s why:

All Custom Foot Orthotics are NOT Created Equal!™

As you will quickly learn, there are literally hundreds of custom foot orthotics on the market.

You can buy them on-line, from local retailers and from licensed physicians.

Most of what you will find on-line and from local retailers is pre-made which means NOT truly custom. 

Pre-made, but touted custom fit, on the label of products like those from Dr. Scholl’s.

Pre-made, but touted custom fit, by local retailers like Good Feet & Foot Solutions.

If a store has an inventory, it’s not custom!

Here are the 2 most important considerations when purchasing a custom foot orthotic.

More important than price?

Only if you care about LONG TERM RESULTS.  

Who cares if you save hundreds of dollars if the product you buy doesn’t work?Yet, billions of “custom” products are sold every year that fail to correct the cause of foot dysfunction.

Important consideration #1.

The actual POSTURE and 3-D impression of each foot.

This must be made non-weight bearing – sitting down!

When you’re standing your foot deforms due to your body weight and gravity.

It’s this deformed position that’s causing your problem, so what we need to do is restore optimal alignment!

Important consideration #2.

Machine calibrated for flexibility.

If your orthotic is not made to flex specific to your body weight, it’s too soft or too hard.

Precision calibration is how you take an ordinary piece of plastic and make it JUST RIGHT specific to only YOU!
