What is different with Betterforms (Shenandoah Podiatry’s over the counter insert) and custom orthotics than the one’s I can get made on the machine at Walmart?

The over-the-counter inserts you purchase in stores such as Walmart are prefabricated based on shoe size only, the scanner at Walmart will check if you have a high arch, flat foot, etc. but still is just prefabricated and not custom made to your feet. Our OTC inserts are also prefabricated but have a better arch support and heel cup to help keep your foot stable and is a great alternative for those with insurance policies that won’t cover custom orthotics or cannot afford them. Custom orthotics are the best option if you want an insert designed to support your foot and correct any malalignment you may have.
