Foot pain relief from an orthotic lab that values your time


How long are you waiting for custom foot orthotics? Six weeks? Eight weeks? Ten weeks? Longer?

The truth of the matter is that it shouldn’t take ten, eight, six or even four weeks to make a pair of custom orthotics.

Fast orthotic lab

At Northwest Podiatric Laboratory, our standard in-lab turnaround time is only five business days. Outside of extraordinary circumstances (e.g. peak COVID in spring 2020), we’ve been receiving, crafting and shipping orders for custom foot orthotics in five business days FOR DECADES. (NOTE: Standard in-lab turnaround time for polypropylene custom orthotics is 10 business days. Standard in-lab turnaround time for Superglass®, NCV® and Prescription Comfort® is five business days).

As one of North America’s most respected custom orthotic labs for nearly 60 years, NWPL doesn’t resort to utilizing inferior techniques/materials, passing off generic insoles as custom, outsourcing important processes or putting profits before people to save time (or cost). Further, for the duration of the COVID-19 pandemic (and into the present), we kept every employee on the payroll at full wages. Our longtime employees are still here, leveraging hundreds of years of combined experience to painstakingly craft industry-leading custom foot orthotics.

In the world of custom orthotics, faster doesn’t mean worse and slower doesn’t mean better. Faster AND better is possible when you partner with the right orthotic lab.
