Custom Orthotics versus Over-the-Counter Orthotics
Prescription Custom Foot Orthotics (PCFO) are inserts for your shoes designed specifically to address and correct your foot mechanics to relieve pain, prevent injury and optimize function. On the other hand, over-the-counter (OTC) or non-prescriptive orthotic inserts are generic in nature and designed to remedy non-complex issues of the foot. An OTC orthotic insert that hasn't alleviated your symptoms generally means that a more specific and custom orthotic is needed.
Custom Orthotics are designed as a dynamic device to address specific phases of movement from the moment the heel hits the ground through push-off including cutting and jumping activities. Orthotics are varied in design and materials used and always keeping your specific goals in mind. Your movement goals are always paramount at BodyPro Physical Therapy whether it's hiking, sprinting, jogging, soccer, basketball, football, work related tasks or simply negotiating uneven surfaces.
