Custom Orthotics

What are Custom Orthotics?

Custom orthotics are specially-made devices designed to support and comfort your feet. Crafted from a mold of your foot, they are tailored to your specific needs and fit your footwear. Unlike over-the-counter insoles, custom orthotics are constructed to correct your specific foot imbalance, providing relief from discomfort, improving gait, and preventing further foot issues. They can be used to treat a wide variety of foot conditions, from flat feet and plantar fasciitis to more complex structural issues.

5 Common Symptoms Indicating the Need for Custom Orthotics:

  • Chronic heel, arch, or ball-of-foot pain
  • Uneven shoe wear patterns
  • Frequent ankle sprains or instability
  • Pain in knees, hips, or lower back related to foot function
  • Abnormal walking patterns, such as overpronation or supination

Most Effective Treatments Involving Custom Orthotics:

Custom orthotics are a cornerstone of non-invasive treatment for various foot and lower limb problems. They work by correcting structural and functional abnormalities to reduce pain, enhance stability, and prevent further injuries.

  • Orthotics for arch support and pain relief
  • Orthotics for correcting overpronation or supination
  • Heel lifts to address leg length discrepancy
  • Cushioning pads for shock absorption
  • Specialized orthotics for sports or specific activities
