CUSTOM FOOT ORTHOTICS
For starters, Foot orthotics are shoe inserts designed to support, align, or improve the function of the foot. These are meant to fit comfortably inside your shoes. Since orthotics are prescription devices, they are custom-made specifically for you, to suit your individual needs and biomechanics (the way your body moves). Orthotics are prescribed by your podiatrist when you are experiencing a particular foot problem after a complete examination. The podiatrist should take into account the way you move, the type of footwear you wear, your occupation, and other lifestyle factors.
A personalized approach comes into play because your podiatrist will come up with a care plan for you. This will include the type of prescription for your orthotics, the manufacturing of your custom orthotics, proper fitting and follow-up with your orthotics to make sure everything is designed correctly according to your care plan. Orthotics provide you with a long-term solution for the treatment of many foot problems, including but not limited to, corns, callouses, tendonitis, plantar fasciitis, recurrent ankle sprains, and stress fractures.
Ultimately, if you are experiencing any type of foot problem and over-the-counter orthotics are not properly working, we recommend receiving custom orthotics. They may be expensive if your insurance does not cover the orthotics, but the custom inserts could potentially last you 10+ years. Plus if the orthotics align, support and/or improve the function of your feet and life, there should be no cost that is too high!
