Custom Foot Orthotics
How do I know if I’ll benefit from custom foot orthotics?
- Look at the bottom of your shoes to see if they are worn evenly across the toe or heel area. Even wear-and-tear indicates your gait is normal, but if they wear out too quickly or unevenly, then you may benefit from orthotics.
- Do your feet hurt after being active? How about your ankles, knees, hips, or back?
- Do you have unusually high arches?
- Do you have flat feet?
- Do you have tendonitis, shin splints, hammer toes?
- Are your legs consistently tired or aching?
- Do you have diabetic foot problems or a neuroma?
Only a podiatrist can tell if custom made orthotics are right for your feet, but most patients notice an immediate difference in comfort and stability, and their pain is sharply reduced or eliminated.
