We recognize that many of the standard prefabricated orthotics do not sufficiently address problems of the feet. If you're one of the many people out there that have tried just about every prefabricated orthotic on the market, and still have found little relief, we probably have the solution for you.
Dr. Souther performs a thorough foot and GAIT exam to assess the function of your feet and to identify the cause of your foot problems. Normal function of the feet is achieved through chiropractic adjustments to any of the 26 bones of the foot and once properly aligned, your feet are fitted with custom orthotics in the office while you wait.
Proper alignment combined, custom orthotics and other therapies including Graston and Laser will keep your feet functioning in their optimal state for whatever your lifestyle demands without the need for more invasive treatments such as injections or surgery.

Orthotics are a great way to help with issues related to walking and alignment, including knee, foot, and lower back pain. They can help to realign the bones in the foot and ankle, and take stress off other parts of the body, such as the back, neck, shoulders, and hips. Custom foot orthotics also cushion your feet, provide comfort, support your arches, and evenly distribute your body weight to eliminate pressure on your feet.
How Do Orthotics Work?
Custom foot orthotics are specially-made devices that fit inside most shoes. They match the contours of your feet precisely, and are designed for the way you move.
Orthotics can help anyone with discomfort relating to walking, or imbalances in the body that are known to cause related pain. A tremendous benefit of custom orthotics is that they can be worn on a daily basis and utilized during most activities.
Custom orthotics can be prescribed by your chiropractor, and last well over a year in most cases. While over-the-counter shoe inserts are available at most drugstores, they lack the custom-built precision of a prescription orthotic. These ‘one-size-fits-all’ inserts rarely match your feet well, or provide the customized support you need.
