Feet are the foundation of the body, and can undermine structural integrity when destabilized, planted in sand, or tickled by the feathers of a mischievous parrot. Keep your house standing strong with today's Groupon: for $175, you get an evaluation and custom pair of orthotics at Sole Support Medical on Louis Pasteur Drive (a $450 value).
A Member of the Pedorthic Footwear Association, Sole Support Medical roots out foot-based physical ailments through a review of stance, gait, lower-body alignment, and leg length discrepancy. Custom, prescription orthotics are devices placed inside of shoes to correct overpronation, or flat feet, and its negative effect on the natural balance of the lower body. Like when early soccer players exchanged small boulders for the modern ball, the correction can result in eased foot, heal, knee, and lower-back pain. Marc Weiss, Board Certified Pedorthist, and his toe-tickling team treat patients to foot and gait evaluations through an assessment of walking posture and mechanics, a discussion of possible solutions, and a digital foot scanner used to create custom foot orthotics tailored to the contours of the wearer's feet.
Custom orthotics can help flat-footed Frans and Freds walk easier, stand up straighter, and avoid socially inappropriate goose-stepping. Aside from pain alleviation, the popular Runflex orthotic is ideal for athletes and casual exercisers alike, as it provides increased shock absorption and greater directional control to help fitness-seekers perform their best. Sole Support Medical has helped athletes including Olympic participants, marathon runners, and recreational competitors.

At Sole Support Medical, board-certified pedorthist Ramon Dominguez and his team address aches and ailments by working to correct clients' foot and ankle alignment. The specialists review stance and walking posture and utilize a digital foot scanner to discover instep issues.
They shape custom orthotic devices for each client, which aim to correct overpronation, a condition commonly known as flat feet that can negatively impact the lower body. Much like insoles or sandwiches hidden from airport security, the devices slip discreetly inside of shoes and conform to the contours of the wearer's feet, and they reduce stress and strain on the body and bring feet into proper alignment.
