Foot Orthotics

Foot orthotics are shoe inserts that can be custom-made to medical specifications or purchased at the local store. Custom-made orthotics are usually considered more effective and higher quality than pre-made orthotics.

Custom-made orthotics help with:

  • Correct abnormal walk or gait
  • Reduce pain
  • Prevent and protect foot deformity’s
  • Better positioning (foot alignment)
  • Take away pressure on the foot
  • Improve mechanics of the foot

Whether from an injury, disease, or condition, the cause of the foot pain is what lets the doctor know what type of orthotic to design. The removable inserts are made by taking an impression of the foot/feet with a 3-D laser scan along with any adjustments.

If you are suffering from foot pain, which can lead to leg, hip, and spine problems, then orthotics can be an answer. By starting from the bottom up foot orthotics can prevent any aforementioned problems and relieve any pain or discomfort. It is an option to be considered and should be discussed with your physician.
