  Q: What is foot orthotics?

  A: updated (13/02/2012)

Orthotics is a medical field which deals with building a device to support or improve the posture of human limbs. When it comes to back or leg problems, orthotic devices can be elaborate and complex mechanical devices; however, when it comes to feet, the devices are somewhat simpler, usually restricted to the shoe insert. There is a specific name given to medical practitioners of foot orthotics, which is pedorthics. When it comes to the professional diagnosing of foot problems, and suggesting solutions to the issue, then you should be looking for a Pedorthist. Pedorthist primarily deal with feet, but they also deal with the limbs which effect the foot, and generally, the lower limbs.
