Custom orthotics are made to fit your individual foot situation, that the contours of your feet, and to provide you with relief from a particular foot pain or to keep your foot from developing a serious foot problem. Orthotics are lightweight devices that are made to custom fit your feet, and will be made to correct your irregular or abnormal walking gait. When you have these problems, the foot will not be able to bear weight properly, causing undue stress to be put on certain parts of your feet. Foot orthotics can be used for many different reasons, including, to keep a bunion from becoming worse, or to help ease heel pain. When you suffer with an irregular walking gait, you can develop bone, tendon, and soft tissue problems. Bunions and hammertoes can also develop or become worse due to your walking gait. Our custom-made orthotics come in different shapes, sizes, and materials, depending on the foot problem that is being addressed, by the function the foot orthotic needs to provide. Our foot doctor will be able to choose the right type of orthotic to fit your individual foot needs. Orthotics can be rigid, semi-rigid, or soft, depending on the foot care that is needed. If you often develop a corn in a specific place on your foot, custom orthotics can help with this problem, as well as of many others.
