Custom foot beds become essential when over-the-counter shoes and/or inserts just aren’t enough to accommodate your feet, knees or hip structure or. In addition, injuries such as plantar fasciitis, achilles tendonitis, various knee and hip pathology need extra attention and always require a thorough mechanical evaluation which helps determine if you can get away with something not custom made. The goal is always to find the right shoe for you and there are plenty of options for different foot types out there. There are even decent inserts that help many people. However, there are times when you need something just for you. The orthotics system I currently use is a 3-D printing company called Phit Insoles. I do a hands-on assessment, functional, standing assessment of your lower quarter, and then have you walk, stand or run on a force plate to gather information. With a push of a button, I send my order into the company. These orthotics are 100% guaranteed for 2 full years free of additional charge.
