Kyle is also the founder owner of Footworks Orthotics, a Milwaukee based company specializing in pedorthic services for active individuals of all ages and abilities. All orthotics created at Footworks Orthotics are hand-crafted from semi-rigid materials which provide individuals with superior fit and function while walking, running, or participating in sports activities. Semi-rigid orthotics are preferable to those made of hard, rigid plastic because the material is more forgiving, adjusts more easily to weight-bearing forces, and takes the pressure off uncomfortable sore spots. Many over-the-counter shoe inserts do not provide one with the arch support or biomechanical correction one may need. In fact, in many cases, they may aggravate the condition .Mass-produced products are not designed to suit individual foot care needs. National laboratories are also unable to adjust the fit of one’s orthotics because they never see the patient, personally.
