  • Not everybody requires orthotic devices. If a person's feet are functioning correctly, there is no need to do anything. Proper footwear advice given by a Chiropodist is sometimes sufficient to optimize foot function. An orthotic device will never change the way an adult foot is structured. For example, a person with "flat feet" will not miraculously obtain an arch. Improved muscle function over time, may alter the foot shape slightly. Prescription orthotics are much like prescription eyeglasses in that generally, they correct the problem only when they are worn.
