Action Wear Orthotics Opportunity

Action Wear Orthotics will be attending the MDAO Clinic this Saturday and will be conducting an evaluation and foot scan free for any official that is interested. The foot scan can be turned into a custom foot orthotic.

Orthotics can help eliminate knee, hip, foot, and back pain, along with, shin splints while reducing wear and tear on your feet, ankles, knees, and back.

They will take orders for the orthotics and can deliver them as soon as within a week. Any order placed Saturday will receive $150 OFF. If you are interested in getting a pair of orthotics, AWO asks that you bring the shoes you will be wearing with the orthotics. 

We encourage you to go to their website for more information or reach out to them at 248-378-1333.
