Superior Orthotics 

Did you ever stop and think about the beating your feet take every day? (Well, if you're reading this in a practitioner's office, you probably have!)

Feet Don't Fail Me Now!
The average person, the American Podiatric Medical Association estimates, takes between 8,000 and 10,000(!) steps every day. In a lifetime, that adds up to about 115,000 miles. With each step, the pressure on your feet can exceed your body weight; when you're running, the pressure soars to three or four times your weight. The foot is a complicated machine. Each foot contains 26 bones and 33 joints held together by 107 ligaments, 19 muscles and scores of tendons. That's a lot of moving parts! Thousands of times each day, every day of your life, your feet are buffeted and jarred! Even simple everyday activities like shopping, chasing after active kids or walking the dog take a toll on your feet. And if you're into athletics - biking, skiing, hiking, running, training for a marathon or contact sports - your feet take an even worse beating as those bones, joints, ligaments, muscles and tendons battle against gravity to control the force and weight of your body's contact with the ground. And medical conditions like diabetes, or lingering injuries can make matters worse.

Orthotics -- the Scientific Answer to Foot Woes
Why Orthotics?

Orthotics Therapy is the science of employing mechanical devices to proactively support your foot or to help treat weakened or injured limbs - in this case, your feet. Orthotics are the tested, proven way to stabilize your feet, relieve pressure and get the biomechanical function of your feet back in alignment.

With the PedAlign system, practitioner-prescribed, carefully crafted, precision orthotics compensate for the ravages of weight and gravity. They can put the spring back into your step and the swagger back into your walk - regardless if used for proactive intervention or a foot discomfort' caused by work, play or a medical condition.

Too important to be Left to a Shoe Salesmen
