Clinical Biomechanics is the study of human motion. Biomechanical issues can cause bunions, hammertoes, neuromas, arch & heel pain, shin splints and aggravate knee, hip, and back symptoms. A functional orthotic (F.O.) is a transferable shoe insert which accurately supports the foot. Functional Orthotics must be made from non-weight bearing impressions while the foot is held in the correct position, ideally from a plaster cast.

That is why weight bearing impressions, especially computer scanners, cannot make an orthotic properly, except for people who don't need them!

Do you notice people are mumbling?

A functional orthotic must be rigid enough to counteract the force of gravity, which is why soft arch supports cannot stabilize the foot properly.
