Can I benefit from Orthotics? Phoenix, Arizona – May, 2018 – Orthotics is the term used to refer to corrective inserts designed to be used in shoes. Orthotics devices offer a host of advantages to the wearer –  Comfort  Stability  additional support and cushioning Orthotics can be prescribed by a foot doctor or podiatrist to –  correct certain foot abnormalities, such as high arches or flat feet  support foot structures that may be a particular shape due to a predisposed inherited gene Orthotics devices that are prescribed by a podiatrist are generally designed for the specific foot issue, such as a high arch or a specific heel injury. Your foot doctor may also prescribe orthotics devices if you suffer from acute or chronic foot and ankle pain. In such cases, orthotics devices provide relief and comfort for pain, but can’t correct serious biomechanical problems in your feet. A podiatrist is the best person to determine if orthotics devices are needed for your foot condition. Orthotics devices are available over the counter at major pharmacies and shoe stores while prescription orthotics are designed specifically for your foot condition or injury once your foot doctor has prescribed them for you. Over-the-Counter Inserts Orthotics devices are available as over-the-counter inserts that are used to treat foot pain, heel pain, and other minor foot problems. For example, gel insoles can reduce pressure to provide comfort and relief from foot and heel pain. Prescription Orthotics Over-the-counter inserts may not work for you because they are not made to measure or designed specifically for your foot. Also, if you have a more severe foot concern, your podiatrist will prescribe custom orthotics devices. Custom or prescription orthotics are high-quality devices, designed to treat your specific foot problem such as abnormal gait, plantar fasciitis, and severe forms of heel pain. Custom orthotics can help diabetes patients by treating and preventing foot ulcers and painful calluses. They are typically molded to your feet and this is why they are able to provide full support and comfort. If you are experiencing any foot or heel pain, ask your podiatrist about the benefits of using orthotics. S/he can determine whether an orthotic is right for you and which type would be the most suitable for your condition or need.
