Orthotic Shoe Inserts Can Help with Many Foot & Ankle Problems

Custom orthotic shoe inserts are made specially from a mold of your foot, so they fit your precise foot shape’s unique contours. It makes them the perfect choice for treating your foot and ankle problems and for helping to prevent future problems (like knee, hip, and back issues) from developing in the first place.

Some of the many problems easily treated and even prevented with the proper placement of custom orthotic shoe inserts include the following:

  • Arch problems and pronation issues

    Your foot doctor will perform a computerized gait analysis to determine your foot type and how orthotics can help.

  • Ulcer treatment and other problems related to diabetic foot care

    Patients who have diabetes can hugely benefit from custom footwear that has extra space for braces and orthotic inserts.

  • Plantar fasciitis

  • Bunions, hammertoes, and other toe problems

    Properly placed metatarsal lifts and cushions can isolate pressure areas on bunions.

  • Ankle sprains and strains

  • Nerve disorders including neuropathy and neuroma

  • Heel pain

  • Sports injuries and fracture treatment

The muscle-weakening experienced by diabetic patients often affects the feet and ankles and leads to increased falls and injuries. Custom-made orthotic braces are used to increase stability and help prevent falls.
