Custom fit orthotics are medical devices that are inserted into footwear which can reduce foot, ankle, leg and knee pain and even correct problems in the back and hips by changing the biomechanics (aka the way we move and walk).

Custom orthotics are comprised of different materials with varying degrees of firmness and flexibility and are tailored to the person’s activity level, occupation, footwear and gender. For this reason, it is important that the orthotic is custom fit to each person to provide the maximal benefit as every person has different requirements.

**The majority of extended health plans offer coverage for custom orthotics – check requirements and coverage as each insurance plan is slightly different.
