Custom orthotics are medical shoe inserts that support and gently reposition the heel, arch, muscles, ligaments, tendons, and bones in the feet. Orthotics enable the structures in the foot to work together as nature intended, making each step pain-free.
Unlike over-the-counter shoe inserts, custom orthotics are created from your own unique foot impression and are designed to meet your specific needs. They are made with comfortable materials that very durable and can be designed to fit in any type of shoe.
Custom-made orthotics have been shown to help alleviate and relieve pain caused by the following common foot conditions:
- Plantar fasciitis
- Arch pain
- Diabetes-related pain
- Hammer toe
- Corns & calluses
How Do Custom Orthotics Work?
The root cause of most foot problems can be attributed to poor foot structure–even the smallest misalignment in the foot can cause significant pain or discomfort. Misalignment in the foot usually causes foot conditions like bunions, corns, hammer toe, etc. If you suffer from these conditions, custom orthotics may be recommended to pad and protect the foot. Custom orthotics not only support the arch, but also realign the structures of the foot and help prevent bone misalignment, as well as tendon and ligament fatigue.
Custom orthotics are usually prescribed by podiatrist according to the requirement, lifestyle, or shape of the foot.
