ORTHOTICS

What are Orthotics? 
Orthotics are devices that are worn to correct foot and ankle problems non-surgically. They include foot pads and shoe inserts. Foot pads are placed on the sole of the shoe. They are used to treat conditions that include metatarsal and sesamoid pain. Shoe inserts are also placed in the shoe. These devices are used to treat a wide variety of problems that include foot arthritis and flat feet. There are many different kinds of inserts, from ones that are soft to ones that are quite rigid. Some come in predetermined sizes or contours, while others need to be custom molded to an individual’s specific foot shape. Prescription Orthotics are divided into two categories:
  • Functional Orthotics are designed to control abnormal motion. They may be used to treat foot pain caused by abnormal motion; they can also be used to treat injuries such as shin splints or tendinitis. Functional orthotics are usually crafted of a semi-rigid material such as plastic or graphite. 
  • Accommodative Orthotics are softer and meat to provide additional cushioning and support. They can be used to treat diabetic foot ulcers, painful calluses on the bottom of the foot, and other uncomfortable conditions. 
Podiatrists use orthotics to treat foot problems such as plantar fasciitis, bursitis, tendinitis, diabetic foot ulcers and heel pain. Clinical research studies have shown that podiatrist-prescribed foot orthotics decrease foot pain and improve function. 

Orthotics typically cost more than shoe inserts purchased in a retail store, but the additional cost is usually well worth it. Unlike shoe inserts, orthotics are molded to fit each individual foot, so you can be sure that your orthotics fit and do what they're supposed to do. Prescription orthotics are also made of top-notch material and last many years when are for properly. Insurance often helps pay for prescription orthotics.
