Orthotics are special shoe or heel inserts a doctor prescribes that are custom-made specifically for you. A foot specialist or a Podiatrist can diagnose if you require orthotics. These are usually a part of a comprehensive treatment plan if you are experiencing pain in your feet, leg, knees, hips, lower back, and other joints. Feet are the foundation of our bodies and it is absolutely essential for our well-being that they function well and are pain free. Many people unfortunately choose to live with the pain but that is not necessary as there are treatments like custom orthotics that are available.
Why choose custom Orthotics?
Orthotics can be part of the treatment for the following:
- correcting foot deformities
- helping the foot or ankle function better
- providing support to the ankle
- reducing the risks for further injuries
A Podiatrist will do a thorough examination of your feet, looking for areas of pain and any possible deformities. An examination of the gait, or the way a person walks is also done apart from a scan of the feet to get to the root of the problem. After the analysis of the foot, a custom cast is formed which ensures a perfect fit for your foot. We also offer orthotic shoes with the insoles, if required.
