Orthotics

Why Orthotics
The word Orthotics is fast becoming a household name.  Previously, orthotics was thought to be only for the elderly or for those with deformed feet or problems caused by an accident.

This has changed over the years.  The reason for the growing popularity of Orthotics is two-fold.  First of all, Solemate’s Shoemate Orthotic can improve your body mechanics so you can enjoy activities with the least amount of discomfort or no discomfort at all.

Thanks to all the different materials available today, Solemate’s Shoemate Orthotic is able to be lightweight, accurate and comfortable at the same time.  It will fit in all comfortable sensible shoes, without a need for a change in your shoe size most of the time.

Orthotics is no longer just a medical device used when needed.  Solemate’s Shoemate Orthotic can be used as a preventive measure.

The second major reason why more and more people are turning to orthotics is, quite simply, nothing else works.

Some people who suffer from foot, leg, knee, hip or back pain might have been misdiagnosed and given painkillers, physical therapy or surgery.  After going through all that, the pain still remains.  Solemate’s Shoemate Orthotic offers you a much simpler solution.
