How Can Custom Foot Orthotics heal your condition?

Orthotics are usually part of a treatment plan for many feet and ankle conditions. For instance, a doctor prescribes orthotics with treatments such as more supportive shoes and physical therapy exercises.
Doctors can also suggest taking nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) such as Ibuprofen and naproxen sodium to reduce pain and inflammation.

Doctors usually recommend orthotics in conjunction with these treatments as orthotics can improve your feet condition. For instance, if you are having a flat foot, wearing orthotics can help provide additional arch support to try and prevent this.

Orthotics offers additional support and cushioning in critical areas of the feet, like the heel or ball of the foot, as orthotics are custom-made.

Most importantly, orthotics can help you avoid invasive surgical procedures while providing comfort and relief from pain.

Why Custom Foot Orthotics Better

Custom Orthotics, also known as shoe inserts or arch support, are designed to support problem spots in your feet. They can lift an arch, relieve heel pain and help compensate for a toe joint deformity.
Custom is critical in orthotics as, unlike generic, mass-produced shoe inserts, custom foot orthotics are made specifically for your foot. They support exactly where you need it and are shaped to fit the contours and size of your feet.
By evaluating your stride, a doctor can understand how your feet function when in movement. Every foot is unique, and an insert that is not custom-made can do more harm than good, causing pain.

Benefits of Custom Foot Orthotics

  • Relieves Pressure- Custom orthotics offer padding and support as they redistribute the pressure on your feet. This is very helpful if you have arthritis or you stand for long periods in a day. Orthotics also help prevent ulcers and other foot abnormalities related to diabetes.
  • Improves the health of your knees, ankle, and back- The ankle, knees, and back depend on your feet to maintain proper alignment and a healthy range of motion. Foot pain can seriously limit the mobility of your muscles, tendons, and joints, as your stance and stride attempt to compensate for the foot pain.
  • Corrects Foot Abnormalities- Unlike generic insoles, prescription orthotics can correct foot abnormalities such as high or collapsed arches.
  • Improves overall health- Foot abnormalities can significantly hamper your life and your performance in athletic or daily chores. Custom orthotics can help relieve the pain that limits your performance.
  • Betters balance- Foot abnormalities and defects can affect your body balance. This is most common with people experiencing flat foot conditions. Custom orthotics can address this condition.
