Orthotics are a special type of shoe or heel insert that is prescribed by a medical expert.
The reasons for getting prescribed orthotics vary, but the most common conditions that require a doctor's recommendation are typically related to foot, leg, and back problems.
Orthotics can also help correct high, rigid arches, redistributing your weight more evenly across your foot and providing more shock absorption. Orthotics are available in a wide variety of forms ranging from soft and accommodative (such as for primarily painful conditions) to rigid orthotics for the foot requiring maximum support.
