How do I go about getting orthotics?

Studies have shown that foot orthotics made by Pedorthists and Orthotists are the most effective in affecting foot alignment and improving specific foot problems as well as feeling the most comfortable.

Pedorthists and Orthotists approach foot problems and maintaining foot alignment in much the same way which, as a general rule is a different approach than others that provide foot orthotics
