What is Orthotics?
Made specifically for you, orthotics is a shoe or special heel to treat foot, leg, and even back problems and pain. They are used for various symptoms and treatments, such as to correct foot deformities and help the ankle and foot function better. It is also common to use a heel pad or shoe to give the heel more support and reduce the risk of injuries.
