Dr. Sayer and Dr. Wright are both licensed extremity doctors and custom foot orthotic practitioners.
Orthotics are a great way to help with issues related to walking and alignment. Some of these include but are not limited to knee, foot and lower back pain. The need for orthotics is often related to an issue with the natural functioning of the foot. Once the lower extremity joints are in proper alignment (through extremity adjustments of the joints), Orthotics will often help to stabilize and therefore take pressure of other parts of the body such as the back, neck, shoulders and hips. In addition, orthotics will help with distributing your weight properly and take further pressure off of toes, bunions and other parts of the foot.
Orthotics are really for anyone with an issue or discomfort relating to walking or imbalances in the body that are known to cause related pain. The great benefit of orthotics is that they can be worn on a daily basis and be utilized during most activities to take further stress of the body.

What are Orthotics?
Orthotics are shoe inserts that help better position the foot inside a shoe. They can correct irregular walking patterns, prevent or help with foot deformity, and improve overall posture and foot function.
Since orthotics act like shock absorbers and help to stabilize the foot, they take the pressure off other parts of the body that are taking extra strain because of improper foot function. For this reason, orthotics can relieve pain in your back, neck, hips, knees, and ankles.
Orthotics also take the pressure off parts of the foot, such as toes or bunions, because they help to distribute the weight on your feet properly. Orthotics are often preceded by extremity adjustments of the joints, such as the hips, ankles, feet, and toes.
The Difference Between Custom and Premade Foot Orthotics
Premade or off-the-shelf orthotics are widely available. You can choose premade orthotics based on your shoe size and foot problem, such as Plantar Fasciitis or Achilles Tendinitis. This type of orthotic is less expensive but you need to replace them often. Also, they may not fit properly or correct your specific foot problems.
Custom foot orthotics, on the other hand, are molded according to the unique shape of your foot. The practitioner will also design the custom foot orthotics with your specific needs in mind. Although custom foot orthotics are more expensive, they last much longer than premade orthotics and they also deliver better results.
