Myths about Feet: Comfort is Expensive

Updated: Dec 31, 2019

Surprisingly, there are a lot of reasons why people choose to live with painful feet rather than happy ones. Over 20 years as a therapist, I've heard them all. One of the most common complaints is, “But orthotics are so expensive!”

We all place value on different things in life. Some will go out to eat and spend over $200 a month doing so, but would never consider spending that amount on their feet for orthotics or footwear.

The reality is that most people end up paying between $0-80 for orthotics once their insurance company reimburses them. The other unlucky people end up paying over $100 for them; rarely does anyone pay the full amount. At the end of the day it comes down to this: How much is your comfort and ability to be active worth to you?

Anyone who gets comfortable with good footwear or orthotics never goes without again. Our customers and patients tell us comfort is essential from that point on!
