It depends on the therapeutic goal of the devices. If the goal is to compensate for a postural problem, the chiropractic orthotics may work as that is their goal. If you are using orthotics to treat, more specifically, a foot or ankle problem the orthotics made by a C. Ped or podiatrist will probably be more advantageous.
