Who Can Benefit From Custom Orthotics?

Custom orthotics are particularly recommended for individuals with flat feet, poor foot and ankle stability, specific foot and ankle conditions, knee pain, or hip pain. Each pair of custom orthotics is uniquely designed and made after a comprehensive biomechanical assessment. This process includes an interview to understand your symptoms and a physical test of foot and limb flexibility, strength, and mobility. In addition, a gait analysis is conducted and a specialized imprint of your foot is made. Custom orthotics are effective in treating conditions such as plantar fasciitis, flat feet, bunions, shin splints, metatarsalgia, and Morton's neuroma. If you seek relief from foot pain and discomfort, it is suggested that you make an appointment with a podiatrist to discuss whether you are a good candidate for custom foot orthotics.
