Getting Started with Orthotics
Orthotics are highly specialized and uniquely fitted inserts made to fit discreetly inside a client's everyday shoes. Their primary purpose is to assist the body in supporting a strong and flexible posture. Contrary to popular belief, orthotics are not a passive "splint." In fact, they are actually a tactile, or touch-sensitive, tool used to stimulate points on the foot so that the body can train itself to function in a more healthy alignment. When the foot posture is ideal and strong, the abdominal core is also better engaged and becomes stronger throughout the day with every step we take.
Orthotics at Alternative View are cast on premises and then specifically manufactured via Sole Supports laboratories. Their special lab uses biomechanical and engineering principles into the design of each client's orthotic so that the finished product more closely replicates the ideal and natural functions of a healthy foot.
Please see our Frequently Asked Questions page for a deeper explanation of orthotic services.
All orthotic services have the option of being supplemented with acupuncture services.
