Custom is the key when it comes to orthotics. Unlike generic, custom orthotics are tailored specifically for your foot as they provide support to exactly where you need it and are shaped to fit the contours and size of your feet.


A custom orthotic is a prescribed medical device from a doctor. Custom means, a doctor uses casts, impressions, or scans to perfectly fit your foot. A doctor-designed orthotic will control the alignment and function of your foot. These orthotics will treat or prevent abnormal motion, or rolling, of the foot.


To create custom orthotics, your health practitioner will take your detailed health history, and also assess your height, weight, activity level and any medical conditions. Then, the health practitioner will determine whether you can benefit from custom orthotics, and determine what materials to use for your orthotics, as well as the level of rigidity and flexibility you will need. Then, your health practitioner will take a 3D impression mold of your feet to create an orthotic specifically designed for your feet to address any of the underlying biomechanical issues.

Custom orthotics are designed to provide support for the anatomical arches of your feet to give you more stability while you stand and walk. It will specifically help to correct misalignments in your problem areas and provide support all along the surface of your feet and can correct foot abnormalities such as pronation (collapsed arches) and supination (high arches).


Misalignments in foot structure caused by conditions such as flat feet, arthritis and plantar fasciitis can cause significant pain in other parts of the body. With custom orthotics, it can help alleviate the pain due to biomechanical misalignments, and help to promote healing without causing unnecessary strain on other joints and parts of the body.

Custom orthotics can also help you improve your athletic performance. Wearing orthotics specifically designed for your athletic activity can help to reduce the force load of the technical demands of a specific sport, helping you produce more efficient and precise movements.


Improving the balance and alignment of your feet can reduce pressure from other parts of your body and improve your overall health. For instance, if foot, ankle or knee pain is preventing you from being more active or sleeping well at night, custom orthotics can have a positive effect on your whole health.


Because your feet don’t stand still all day, Dr. Leonard Knudson evaluates your stride during a custom orthotics evaluation. This gives him a clearer picture of how your feet function with movement. Every foot is unique, and an insert that’s not a custom fit can end up causing as much pain as it’s supposed to resolve.
