The purpose of inserting an orthotic is to align the foot and ankle to assume the most anatomically efficient position for functional use. Unlike over the counter orthotics, a pair of custom orthotics is created to meet specific needs and unique characteristics of one’s anatomical needs. To design a fitted custom foot orthotics, our dedicated staff will take you through the following process:
- Take detailed measurements of your feet in order to allow corrective modifications to be appropriately built into the orthotics at specific landmarks.
- Create plaster molds of your feet which are made to add corrective postings to help with the control and realignment of your foot.
- The plaster molds are then sent to an orthotic fabricator where they will create a pair of custom orthotics.
When should I consider orthotics?
Orthotics can be helpful in alleviating leg fatigue and foot pain that are commonly associated with conditions like Achilles Tendonitis, Plantar Fasciitis, metatarsalgia, neuroma, arch and heel pain and more. By having proper foot alignment, you can also have positive impact on other problems in different body parts such as knees or lower back.
