How are Superior Foot Supports orthotics made?
Our orthotics are custom made to order, based on a detailed biomechanical evaluation and your unique foot impressions taken by our highly experienced staff.

Does my medical insurance cover Superior Foot Supports orthotics?

Unlike most other companies products, our orthotics are not pre-made and pulled off of a shelf. They are custom made based on your unique foot impressions that we take at your initial appointment, and then require expert fabrication by our orthotics manufacturing lab based on your unique detailed specifications.
