"Orthotics" are prescription arch supports that do MUCH MORE than just support the arch of your feet. They support the back, middle and front parts of your feet and lead to better function while reducing your chances of foot/leg/back pain and lower extremity injuries.
If you are experiencing difficulty walking or if you want to prevent many lower extremity and back problems, Doc Rick's Orthotics are an economical and simple way to help. I have personally designed these orthotics with my lab and have used them successfully in my practice for many years.
MATERIALS USED: A soft yet firm cushioned material is used in the "Regular" model. A softer cushioned material is used in the "Sensitive Foot" model
WHEN SHOULD I USE THEM? Use them at home, at work, when shopping and while "exercising".
HOW LONG WILL THEY LAST? Usually 3-5 years depending on the wear and tear, person's weight, person's foot type

Take out the shoe's inner sole and place the orthotic inside. For the first week, just wear them around the house to acclimate to them. After 1 week, you can use them out of the house and when exercising. (Not swimming!)
If they get dirty: Use a baby wipe to clean them. Do not place them in the dishwasher or washing machine.
If they get wet: Immediately take them out of your shoe and use a hair dryer or place them in the sun or garage to dry.
If they are squeaky sounding: Apply corn starch (not talcum powder) to the bottom cover.
If you do not have appropriate shoe gear: Take your new orthotics to a store (not online!) and remove the inner sole (unless it is glued into the shoe) and place them inside. Make sure the shoe is deep enough, long enough, and not too tight. If the shoe is roomy, you can place the orthotics on top of the existing inner sole.
The "Doc Rick's Orthotics" are for the majority of people including those with flat feet, rigid feet, and mild lower back issues.
The "Doc Rick's Sensitive Foot Orthotic" is for people who have "sensitive feet". That includes such things as moderate-severe lower back issues (like herniated disc/ spinal stenosis), fibromyalgia, and
moderate-severe neuropathy (numbness, tingling, burning) that can come with pre-diabetes/diabetes, history of chronic alcoholism, and history of chemotherapy/radiation.
