What to Bring / What to Expect
What to Bring
For Gait Orthotics (Walking, Running, Hiking etc.):
It is important to bring several pairs of your most commonly worn shoes. We evaluate the wear patterns and evaluate the cross compatibility for using the orthotic in different shoes. If you have old orthotics or the original footbeds they are also good to bring.
For Fixed Foot Orthotics (Ski Boot, Mountaineering Boot, Cycling shoe etc.):
It is important to bring any existing orthotics or footbeds and the socks you will be wearing.
What to Expect
Each appointment is for two hours. During that time we will do a complete foot evaluation and gait analysis, and also take a ground reaction print of your feet before discussing with you the options for orthotics or custom insoles. After doing the molding process, we fabricate the orthotics in the office and do the initial adjustments on the spot. You leave with the orthotics with break-in instructions and exercises.
