It used to be that foot orthotics were mainly available in two places: through a podiatrist’s office on a prescription basis and at the drugstore. With advances in technology and the rise of e-commerce, however, there are now more options than ever before for buying orthotics.
No matter where you buy your orthotics from, the most important thing is to make sure the insoles you’re buying are of a high quality and suited for your lifestyle and needs. By having an understanding of the places you can go to buy orthotics, and what they can offer, you can make the decision of where to buy them on a more informed basis.
Orthotics buying options
There are now a wide variety of outlets where orthotic insoles can be purchased over-the-counter or custom-crafted, including:
- Retail stores — Orthotics can be purchased at most major retail stores, from grocery stores all the way to sporting goods stores. There are also a growing number of specialty retailers that focus on selling orthotic insoles, orthopedic shoes and other products designed to promote musculoskeletal health.
- Doctor’s offices — Custom orthotics can be fitted and crafted at the office of a podiatrist or other qualified medical professional. The downsides are that it can be time consuming and expensive to go through this process.
- Online stores — Like nearly any other product in the modern marketplace, orthotics can be purchased through websites that can streamline the shopping experience and pass the savings directly to the consumer. It is even possible to sell custom-fitted orthotics online with the help of do-it-yourself impression kits that capture all the data needed to craft a high quality insole.
