Orthotics Q & A

What are custom orthotics?

Custom orthotics are prescription shoe inserts that correct foot, ankle, and lower leg problems and symptoms. Custom orthotics can help relieve: 

  • Flat feet
  • Heel pain
  • Pain in the ball of your foot
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Neuromas
  • Arthritis
  • Bunions
  • Corns
  • Calluses
  • Hammertoe
  • Diabetic feet issues

Orthotics can also help with many other conditions affecting your feet, ankles, and lower legs. Valley Foot & Ankle can design orthotics for any type of shoe, including athletic, dress, and casual footwear.

How do custom orthotics work?

Custom orthotics keep your foot in a neutral position, which leads to more efficient function and normal range of motion. 

With custom orthotics, you can move your feet in the correct range of motion and prevent abnormal or unnecessary motions. Custom orthotics also offer the following benefits: 

Support

Orthotics can give you the support your shoes may lack. For example, an orthotic can improve your foot arch or give you extra support in an area where your foot is weak.

Shock absorption

Your feet absorb a considerable amount of shock because they support your body weight. Custom orthotics give you extra shock absorption to minimize this damage.

Protection

Orthotics can shield delicate areas of your foot to prevent damage. For example, a custom orthotic can relieve excessive pressure that might otherwise lead to skin breakdown and foot ulcers. 

Ultimately, every orthotic works a little differently because it's made for your specific foot.

Why are custom orthotics better than ordinary shoe inserts?

You can buy one-size-fits-all or even customizable shoe inserts at local drugstores or online, but they're very different than the custom orthotics you can get at Valley Foot & Ankle. 

Generic orthotics don't fit your feet properly and can actually exacerbate issues instead of helping. In fact, over-the-counter orthotics can even put you at risk for slipping or other types of injury due to imperfect fit and improper weight distribution.

Your podiatric care team considers many things when determining what kind of orthotic you need, including:

  • Your foot type
  • Your symptoms and foot problems
  • The type of shoes you normally wear
  • Your regular activities

All this information helps the team select the right materials, ranging from very firm to very springy and lightweight, for your needs. The team uses an advanced laser scanning system to measure your foot perfectly. 

All of these factors combine to give you the most well-fitted, comfortable, and high-functioning custom orthotic that exists.
