Absolutely no! Lots ofpatients come in and say they tried orthotics and they didn't work. The first thing I ask is who made them and how? A device from a chiropractor or physcial therapist or even a podiatrist who doesn't specialize in orthotics is nothing like a well made custom functional foot orthotic made by one of the physicians at FAANT. We make hundreds of orthotics using the gold standard - a neutral suspension cast or a three dimentional scan! Demand the best! Your feet deserve it!
