Custom Orthotics for Runners

custom orthoticsCustom orthotics are simply the best way to correct subtle imbalances in the foot and ankle that can lead to running injuries. A custom orthotic is not just an arch support or a custom foot bed with extra cushioning. A custom running orthotic is a completely custom made medical device designed to control abnormal motion, correct for alignment problems and correct faulty biomechanics that can lead to running-related injury.

When a sports medicine specialist performs your biomechanical exam, the sports medicine doctor takes numerous measurements of the positions and angles of the feet, ankle and legs. Based on all of this information, the podiatrist makes a plaster mold of the feet and writes a prescription for the orthotic fabrication. The orthotic lab uses all of this to create an exact replica of your feet and then custom forms the orthotics device that will correct any problems in alignment. This can help to increase your running efficiency and decrease the risk of running injury.

The biggest problem for many runners in San Francisco is that there isn’t a lot of time to waste. Because our sports medicine podiatrist is an active Ironman triathlete, marathon runner, father and busy professional, he sympathizes with the common plight of the busy Bay Area athlete. For this reason his practice is dedicated exclusively to house calls for runners in San Francisco, Marin and the East Bay.

If you need custom orthotics, he will come right to your home or office to perform your biomechanical exam and cast you for your custom running orthotics. He will even personally deliver the orthotics to you. That way you won’t have to skip a business luncheon or afternoon run just to see an expert. Let the expert come to you!

No Risk 365-Day Money-back Guarantee!

Doc On the Run Custom orthotics are so good we can guarantee the following:

1. You will run your fastest marathon ever.

2. Your friends will accuse you of doping our somehow otherwise cheating.

3. You can run in your custom orthotics for a full year. If you’re not 100% satisfied after using them for 365 days you can return the custom orthotics and get a full refund for the cost of the orthotics.

How can Dr. Segler possibly offer such an outlandish guarantee? Simple. Doc On The Run is a nationally recognized expert in running biomechanics. If you don’t need custom orthotics, he won’t make them for you. But if you do need custom orthotics, these running orthotics will help.

In over 10 years, we have only had one pair returned (from a teenage girl who would only wear flip-flops.) We have NEVER yet had a request for a refund from a runner!

Ultra Marathon Runner Custom Orthotics Experience

Custom orthotics aren’t for everyone…in fact most runners don’t need them at all. But for Lauren, custom orthotics were the difference between DNF and successfully running 100 mile trail races. Here’s what she has to say about the experience of getting injures and then getting back to running with the help of custom orthotics from Doc On The Run. (Disclaimer: Results not typical. Individual outcomes may vary. Never start a new exercise program without consulting your doctor. Never try to run 100 miles or compete with Lauren, without talking to your doctor first.)
