Frequently Asked Questions
A. The process to make custom orthotics starts with taking an accurate 3D impression of your foot while it’s in proper alignment and position. The impression is then sent to a lab where the orthotic is molded from thermoplastic and other materials. At Premier Spine and Sport Rehabilitation & Wellness we send our impressions locally, to one of the largest labs in North America. The custom orthotics are then received back within 1-2 weeks, at which point we will have a fitting appointment. During this appointment we make sure that the orthotic fits your shoes and any fine-tuning adjustments will be done to make sure that it is comfortable. Several weeks afterwards we will follow up with you to ensure that the orthotic is comfortable and managing your condition well.
