Custom Orthotics Q & A
What are custom orthotics?
Custom orthotics are specialized foot products, such as medical shoe inserts, designed specifically to support your foot health.
Custom orthotics pad and protect your feet structures, gently supporting and repositioning your arches, heels, tendons, ligaments, muscles, and bones.
Custom orthotics are an excellent choice if you struggle with chronic foot issues or are attempting to heal after a foot injury or medical problem.
How can custom orthotics improve my life?
Foot pain can be debilitating, and custom orthotics offer a noninvasive, drug-free way for you to experience less pain and inflammation caused by problems like:
- Arch pain
- Heel pain (plantar fasciitis)
- Corns and bunions
- Diabetes-related pain
Not only can custom orthotics relieve foot pain, but they also correct the functioning of your body’s lower extremities, namely your feet, ankles, legs, knees, thighs, and hips.
Custom orthotics can relieve ligament fatigue and correct and prevent bone misalignment. In doing so, custom orthotics afford you more control over your movements, protecting you from avoidable injuries and complications.
How do you make custom orthotics?
Before making your custom orthotics, Eastside Podiatry PLLC assesses your condition by performing a thorough physical exam and going over your health history and activity level.
Based on this exam, the practice diagnoses your condition and gathers a clear picture of the type of orthotics you need. Details like your height, weight, and activity level play a big part in deciding what levels of material rigidity or flexibility will most benefit you.
Next, the practice performs digital imaging and measures your feet, so they can design orthotics that not only fit perfectly but provide support in all the right places.
Finally, Eastside Podiatry PLLC custom molds your orthotics. When they arrive, you’ll come in for another appointment, during which your doctors make sure your orthotics are a perfect fit.
Custom orthotics are durable and comfortable and can alter your outlook on life. To make a positive change for yourself, reach out to Eastside Podiatry PLLC by calling the office or using the online booking tool.
