Are custom orthotics worth it?

Biocorrect, LLC


People dealing with foot pain and other related problems will often begin to consider custom orthotics when other options, such as over-the-counter insoles, are not providing the relief necessary for a healthy and active lifestyle. 

Unfortunately, foot pain sufferers will often quickly run right into sticker shock when they start to research the price of custom orthotics. With the cost often running as much as $600 or even higher, it’s very easy to wonder if the potential benefits of custom-fitted orthotics are worth the steep price. The good news is that technological advances in this field, combined with the rise of e-commerce, have made it possible to offer a fully custom orthotic at a lower price point than prescription insoles. 

Benefits of ordering custom orthotics online

In the past, custom orthotics had to be made using a plaster casting. Plaster can be difficult to work with and requires a trained professional to get the most accurate impression of the foot possible. With the development of medical-grade moldable foam, it is easier than ever to create an accurate impression of the foot. In fact, making a foot impression is so easy with foam that it’s possible for a person to do it his- or herself with minimal assistance. 

At Biocorrect, we’re happy to provide our customers the option of having an at-home moldable foam impression kit shipped right to them when they order our custom orthotics. This streamlined process includes the following steps: 

  • Complete the included health history form.
  • Have a friend or family member assist you in creating an impression of your feet.
  • Follow instructions for taking digital photographs.

From there, our experts can use this data to create an accurate 3D model that allows us to make fully custom orthotics that match your unique foot structure and biomechanics.
