What You Need to Know about Custom Orthotics
Custom orthotics cushion and support your feet, which can help alleviate foot, leg, and back pain. Your podiatrist may recommend custom orthotics if you suffer from:
- Flat feet
- Rheumatoid arthritis
- Plantar fasciitis
- Diabetic peripheral neuropathy
- Gait, balance, and posture issues
Our podiatrist may also recommend custom orthotics if you play sports or participate in activities that stress your feet. Custom orthotics are also of major benefit if you have suffered a traumatic injury to your feet.
There are different types of orthotics for you to choose from, including:
Soft orthotics are made entirely of soft materials, which are an excellent choice for balance problems, shock absorption, foot arthritis, or diabetic neuropathy.
Semi-rigid orthotics are made of both soft and rigid materials, which are a superb option for pediatric foot problems, sports injuries, or to relieve foot stress.
Rigid orthotics are made entirely of rigid materials, which are the perfect solution to relieve tendon and muscle pain in your feet and legs.
