Custom Orthotics Q & A

Associated Podiatrists, P.C.

What are custom orthotics?

Custom orthotics can gently reposition and support the arch, heel, ligaments, muscles, tendons, and bones in your feet. Custom orthotics are medical shoe inserts and specialized products created from molds or imaging of your feet.

The experts at Associated Podiatrists, P.C. offer custom orthotics to support your foot, relieve pain, and allow the structures of your foot to work harmoniously and painlessly together as nature intended. 

Custom orthotics work to:

  • Support your arch
  • Realign the structures of your foot
  • Correct the functioning of the lower extremity: foot, ankle, leg, knee, thigh, and hip
  • Help prevent bone misalignment and tendon and ligament fatigue

When your foot hits the ground and you’re wearing custom orthotics, the orthotics gently guide your foot into the correct position to decrease pain and stop inflammation.

Why are custom orthotics recommended?

Your podiatrist might recommend custom orthotics to treat a range of conditions, including:

  • Hammertoe
  • Bunions
  • Corns and calluses
  • Arch pain
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Diabetes-related pain

At Associated Podiatrists, P.C., your doctor takes the time to work with you and determine the right custom orthotics for your individual needs.

How are custom orthotics made?

If your podiatrist recommends custom orthotics as part of your treatment plan, you undergo a physical exam so your podiatrist can gain a clear picture and accurate diagnosis of your condition.

The doctors at Associated Podiatrists, P.C. perform digital measurements and imaging to create your custom-molded orthotics, meet your individual needs, and alleviate your foot complications.

What are the benefits of custom orthotics?

Custom orthotics offer protection and padding for your feet. They’re comfortable, durable, and most are designed to fit into any type of shoe. Custom orthotics can also prevent and treat injuries caused by excessive movements and prevent complications like hammertoes and bunions.

Custom orthotics can also:

  • Reduce pain and inflammation
  • Improve the functioning, control, and alignment of your foot
  • Allow your foot to heal following an injury or medical problem
  • Improve comfort and functionality for walking, running, and other activities

Podiatrists receive specialized and extensive training on the forces and movements in the foot and how they relate to and affect the rest of the lower extremity, and the experts at Associated Podiatrists, P.C. can help you to improve your foot health and functioning.
