Foot disorders can cause major pain and suffering.  Those who are afflicted with these disorders sometimes look desperately for relief.  In order to permanently solve the problem, you must change the way your feet function on the ground. The only way to do that is to use a true custom, biomechanical orthotic: Sole Supports.

Sole Supports are custom foot orthotics, which allow for your foot to remain in constant contact with your orthotic. This allows Sole Supports to provide total support, including full support to your arch, which in turn will correct your posture.
