3 Arch Advantage –
Functional Orthotics vs. ‘Custom’ Orthotics
To ensure that your feet stay in good form, orthotics are often recommended. However, it’s important to note that not all orthotics are made the same. Most orthotics, especially over-the-counter varieties, are designed to only assist a single arch on each foot. Such generic products often overcorrect one arch, causing more harm than
good and shifting pain and discomfort from one area of the body to another. Furthermore, over-the-counter products may not be very durable, and may result in more costs due to frequent replacement.
Foot Levelers recognizes there are three arches that form the plantar vault, and all three need orthotic reinforcement to properly support your body. With the 3 Arch Advantage you get maximum support in all three arches, providing a solid foundation for your body, your kinetic chain.
This is why Footlevelers offers individually designed Functional Orthotics based on digital images or impressions of your feet. This ensures that the product is tailored to your specific functional needs for longer-term symptom relief.
