In-House Orthotics

OFAC has always offered custom orthotics, but we now have the technology to make orthotics in-house. This allows for more precise accommodations and corrections, as adjustments can be made while the orthotics are being manufactured. In the past it would take 2-3 weeks to receive orthotics, but now, patients can take their new orthotics home with them at the end of their appointment.  Read more about our orthotics.
