The Versatility of Custom Orthotics

Custom orthotics, often associated with runners or athletes, offer benefits beyond the realm of sports. These specialized shoe inserts are designed to address imbalances in foot structure, which can significantly impact posture and overall body alignment. Even a minor imbalance can lead to problems throughout the body. Orthotics may be beneficial if you notice uneven wear on the soles of your shoes or have frequent ankle sprains. Chronic pain in the heels, misaligned toes, or abnormal foot positioning during walking are other reasons that orthotics may be needed. By providing support and stability, orthotics help distribute weight more evenly across the foot, reducing strain on muscles and joints. They can correct biomechanical issues, improve gait efficiency, and alleviate discomfort associated with various conditions. Whether you are an athlete or someone seeking relief from everyday discomfort, custom orthotics offer a simple yet effective solution to enhance foot function and promote overall well-being. If you are interested in learning more about how custom-made orthotics can help you, it is suggested that you consult a podiatrist.

If you are having discomfort in your feet and would like to try orthotics, contact one of our podiatrists from Comprehensive Foot & Ankle Center of South Jersey. Our doctors can provide the care you need to keep you pain-free and on your feet.

What Are Orthotics?

Orthotics are inserts you can place into your shoes to help with a variety of foot problems such as flat feet or foot pain. Orthotics provide relief and comfort for minor foot and heel pain but can’t correct serious biomechanical problems in your feet.

Over-the-Counter Inserts

Orthotics come in a wide variety of over-the-counter inserts that are used to treat foot pain, heel pain, and minor problems. For example, arch supports can be inserted into your shoes to help correct overarched or flat feet, while gel insoles are often used because they provide comfort and relief from foot and heel pain by alleviating pressure.

Prescription Orthotics

If over-the-counter inserts don’t work for you or if you have a more severe foot concern, it is possible to have your podiatrist prescribe custom orthotics. These high-quality inserts are designed to treat problems such as abnormal motion, plantar fasciitis, and severe forms of heel pain. They can even be used to help patients suffering from diabetes by treating foot ulcers and painful calluses and are usually molded to your feet individually, which allows them to provide full support and comfort.

If you are experiencing minor to severe foot or heel pain, it’s recommended to speak with your podiatrist about the possibilities of using orthotics. A podiatrist can determine which type of orthotic is right for you and allow you to take the first steps towards being pain-free.
