Stop Foot and Ankle Pain with Custom Orthotic Inserts

Stop Foot and Ankle Pain

As folks are emerging from lockdown and getting involved in socially distanced athletic and exercise activities, it’s a good time to make sure you have properly fitted footwear and orthotic inserts. Custom orthotic shoe inserts are molded to your exact foot shape and are used to treat many foot and ankle problems. They can even heighten athletic performance while also decreasing the chances of an injury.

Proper formation and placement of orthotics will correct faulty gait mechanics which can alleviate back, knee, and hip pain too.

Some of the many conditions that can be treated with custom orthotic shoe inserts include the following:

By using a computerized gait analysis your foot doctor can custom design orthotics that will address flat feet and other arch problems. Specially placed orthotic pads and cushions can be used to provide heel and metatarsal lifting and isolation of problem areas.
