  1. Thanks for sharing this information and your thoughts. The more useful and knowledgeable information about custom orthotics online the better. In clinical practice I’ve seen great improvements in patients using orthotic inserts for a variety of bio-mechanical conditions. Results speak loudest, in my opinion.
