Custom Foot Orthotics
Made of different materials and quality; not all orthotics are created equal. A shoe insert supports the abnormal movement of a foot. Custom Orthotics also serves as an integral part of training for runners and all kinds of athletes.
Those experiencing constant foot pain in the arch or heel need a quality orthotic made to support the foot. Custom Orthotics can be a tool to relieve pain, preserve bone and joint health and function, and even enhances performance.
Although it may provide some short term relief, even the most cushioned insole won’t fix the problem long term.
Why Custom Orthotics Works Better than Generic
Custom Orthotics are tailored specifically for your foot. Custom is the key when it comes to orthotics. Unlike generic, mass-produced shoe inserts are available over the counter or online. Custom Orthotics provides support on exactly where you need it and are shaped to fit the contours and size of your feet.
At Associated Foot Care Clinic, Inc. Dr Leonard Knudson will evaluate your stride during a custom orthotics evaluation. This will give him a clearer picture of how your feet function with movement.
Since every foot is unique, our Podiatrist needs to make sure that the custom insert is correct on your feet because an insert that’s not a custom fit can end up causing as much pain as it’s supposed to resolve.
Wearing Custom Foot Orthotics can also help to relieve foot pain caused by medical conditions including plantar fasciitis, bursitis, diabetes and arthritis.
Benefits of Custom Foot Orthotics
Rather than masking your pain, custom orthotics correct the underlying cause, such as collapsed arches (pronation) or high arches (supination). While discomfort is your symptom, underlying structural abnormalities are often the culprit when it comes to foot pain.
A custom orthotic is a prescribed medical device from Foot Doctor Dr. Leonard Knudson to help alleviate and prevent foot, ankle, and knee pain, and improve your balance and foot function in general, such as:
Alter abnormal foot functioning position to correct many common foot ailments or prevent them from getting worse.
Improves chronic and acute sports injuries.
Support your feet and legs whenever weight bearing to increase confidence and sports performance.
Help your child’s foot grow in more neutral or anatomically aligned position.
Improves your balance.
Eliminates low back pain from leg length inequalities.
Improve weight distribution and posture.
Optimize shoe fit and comfort and absorb shock.
