“My Feet are the foundation to my success. When I had foot pain and leg trouble I ran to OPT Physical Therapy.” Shalane F.
“I think I had too many cooks in the kitchen (in Portland) telling me I needed to change things. In the end I am still wearing your original orthos that you made”. Shalane Flanagan

“We take professional shoe fitting personally…”
Our strong background in biomechanics helps you stay in the game whether it be running, walking, or playing your favorite sport. Our knowledge of foot from the Biomechanical Seminars and the GIFT Fellowship, allows us to properly fit you with over the counter inserts, custom orthotics, or performance footwear correctly every time.
The Benefit to You: Save Money + Comfort
- Professional shoe fitting by our Certified Pedorthist or D.P.T.
- Foot/ankle Biomechanical Exams by our Physical Therapists
- Gait analysis and Hip flexibility screening
- Over the counter foot inserts modified for your exact foot type
- Custom foot orthotics using the AmFit Computerized Digital scan, the most specific and precise device for measuring foot orthotics
- Orthotic adjustments and small repairs immediately
- Avoiding wasting money on a closetful of useless, wrong shoes.
We use the AmFit Digitizer, the most precise measuring device for foot orthotics available.
The cost is $325 + tax, all additional inserts cost $162.50.00 + tax.
Have your foot digitally scanned, to allow for a full contact, full weight bearing custom orthotic that lets your foot be “successful and comfortable.”
“It’s unbelieveable…I was out of work for six weeks. I couldn’t walk. I put in the inserts on a Tuesday and I felt so good I went for a run on Thursday. Thanks for the help. I need two more pairs”. Shane V., Newport Fireman
OPTOGAIT Digital Running Analysis
Are you a good runner? Want to find out for sure? The OptoGait Digital gait and Running Analysis system is the most precise method available for measuring Running Asymmetry. Just a brief running test on our treadmill will provide information that is otherwise a mystery to the runner or coach. Asymmetries can be uncovered which cost the athlete efficiency and economy of running.
-Measure Step length, contact times, stride angle, and more.
-Easily compare different running shoes to see if they match your feet/efficiency.
-Prove if your orthotics are working well.
-Compare biomechanical factors such as leg length, tightness/inflexibility or residual problems from a prior injury
-Receive a one-on-one evaluation of your test results

CASEY SMITH: TeamPUMA VOLVO AROUND the WORLD OCEAN RACE
I was suffering intense pain in my right arch for more than a year, after being fitted for a set of off the shelf Orthotics from you the pain is gone after one week.
I am looking forward to using the custom ones you have made for my sea boots on the bow of Puma’s Mar Mostro in the Volvo Ocean Race.
