What is a plantar orthosis?
An plantar orthosis is a device which, when inserted into a good quality shoe, relieves the pain connected to foot problems due to pathologies, congenital deformations and injuries from overwork or other causes.

Why is it better to wear custom made orthoses?
Contrary to readily available inner soles, custom made ortheses are medical devices which support and gradually correct the position of the foot, the muscles, the ligaments, the tendons and the bones of the foot, so that the whole works as it should to allow you to walk without pain.

Do ortheses hurt when one begins to wear them?
No. Plantar ortheses should not cause pain or aggravate existing pain. However, it often takes a little bit of time to get used to a new thing or situation and it is possible that wearing ortheses feels a bit strange in the beginning. But if you experience any pain, it is important that you get in touch with your specialist.
