Your doctor can prescribe for a custom orthotic(s) – custom made insert or footbed fitted into a shoe. Foot orthoses – also known as shoe inserts – are made by following a tracing of the extremity with measurements to assist in creating a well-fitted device. Commonly referred to as “orthotics“, these orthoses provide support for the foot by redistributing ground reaction forces as well as realigning foot joints while standing, walking or running. Our foot doctor will evaluate your foot movement, conduct a complete evaluation of your feet, ankles, and legs to design a biomechanical medical device to aid people with foot problems, accommodate biomechanical deformities and a variety of soft tissue inflammatory conditions, such as plantar fasciitis. Orthotics prescription can also be used in conjunction with properly fitted orthopaedic footwear in the prevention of foot ulcers in the at-risk diabetic foot . Custom orthotics are custom-crafted foot appliances designed and prepared to provide maximum support and ultimate comfort to your feet. The prescribed custom orthotics reduce strain and stress on your whole body by properly aligning your feet. Following the exact imprints of your feet, these custom orthotics fit into your shoes as an insole.
Orthotics prescription is a process of evaluating your feet movement, assessing your feet balance and designing a customized biomechanical medical device for your feet.
