We have an onsite physician that will work with you to create custom orthotics that you will wear inside your shoes to correct biomechanical foot issues, such as problems with how you walk, stand, or run. They can also help with foot pain caused by medical conditions such as diabetes, plantar fasciitis, bursitis, and arthritis. You do not need a doctor’s referral to for an orthotics appointment. The fitting appointment is included in the cost of the orthotic.
