Foot orthotics fit inside your shoe and can be custom-made to medical specifications or purchased at the local store. Custom-made orthotics are far more effective and of higher quality than pre-made orthotics.
Custom orthotics help:
- Correct abnormal walk/gait
- Reduce pain
- Prevent and protect foot deformity’s
- Proper foot alignment
- Reduced pressure on the foot
- Improved mechanics of the foot
Foot pain can present itself through an injury, disease, or condition, but it’s the root cause of the pain that lets the doctor know what type of orthotic to design. The inserts are made by taking an impression of the foot/feet with a 3-D laser scan along with any adjustments.
Foot pain can be detrimental and can lead to leg, hip, and spinal problems. Orthotics can help. By starting with the feet, foot orthotics can prevent future issues and relieve any pain or discomfort. It is an option to be considered and should be discussed with your primary doctor.
