How do custom made orthotics work?
Off-the-shelf or custom made- is there a difference?
Off the shelf orthotics are mass produced, give general arch support and are good as an introduction. They are not bespoke insoles and will not be customised to your needs. Prescription orthotics are custom made to meet individual needs. They are made of more durable, better quality materials and have a longer life span.
Because they are custom made insoles people notice more of an improvement over the generic, off the shelf orthotics. If you have started out in off the shelf orthotics and have noticed some improvement. You may find upgrading to custom orthotic insoles will give further benefits.
