Got Squeaky Orthotics?

This can be an annoying symptom of having orthotics, but it’s not a sign that they are poorly made or somehow defective.

Frequently we hear complaints about orthotics squeaking and creaking in shoes. This short video demonstrates how loud they can be and how instantly they can be silenced.

This situation illustrates that no matter how stable the shoe design, or how good the orthotic we prescribe, there is still a considerable amount of foot movement within the confines of orthotic and shoe. Especially when dealing with children’s feet or excessively pronated feet for example Post Tib Disfunction cases it can be extremely hard to fully control or limit abnormal movement in the foot.
