Do you have pain in your feet? Have you ever tried an orthotic to treat this pain? Many people have bought orthotics or shoe inserts from a sporting goods store or drug store to try and treat their foot pain and for many people these temporary generic orthotics do provide some relief. But for others this does not meet their pain relief expectations. For these people a custom made orthotic from a foot and ankle specialist may be indicated.
Custom orthotics from a foot and ankle specialist can be used to treat a plethora of foot and ankle ailments. Some of these indications include but are not limited to plantar fasciitis (heel or arch pain), Achilles tendon pain, bunions, hammertoes, neuroma, athletic injuries, calluses, and corns to name a few. Custom orthotics place your foot in an ideal position for your body to function in and can relieve pain throughout your body.
Not all “custom” orthotics are the same. Only a medical professional specializing in foot and ankle pathology, such as a podiatrist, can truly analyze your feet for subtle biomechanical abnormalities and design the correct custom orthotic for you.
