What Are Orthotics?

The term "Orthotic or Orthoses" can refer to almost any device which is worn inside a shoe.

Items called 'orthotics' are available from physicians and other medical professionals, in shoe shops, in newspapers and retail shops.

Broadly speaking there are three different types available in the UK: Custom Made Orthotics, Customised Orthotics and Off-The-Shelf (OTS) Orthotics.
