Foot Orthotics FAQ

Frequently Asked questions about… Foot Orthotics

Do you suffer from lower back pain, leg fatigue, heel pain, plantar fasciitis, pain at the balls of your foot, knee or hip pain, hammertoes, calluses or bunions?

If so, then custom foot orthotics may be the perfect solution for you!

What is a custom foot orthotics?

Custom-made foot orthotics are shoe inserts manufactured from a computerized impression of your feet by your chiropractor and worn inside your shoes (athletic, casual, or dress) . Custom orthotics help your feet function in their optimal neutral position and eliminate the need for your body to compensate for misalignment anywhere in your lower extremity (feet, ankles, knees, hips, and back).

What conditions can they help?

In my experience 9 out of 10 people gave arch problems that is correlating to a problem somewhere else in their body. Custom orthotics can help those with back pain, knee pain, heel pain, hip pain, sciatica, or bunions.

Who can benefit from custom- made foot orthotics?

Due to the fact that most people suffer from some form of misalignment, just about anyone will benefit from wearing custom-made orthotics. There are many different styles to meet a variety of needs. Your provider will help determine what style is best suited for your individual needs.

How do custom made orthotics help reduce or eliminate pain?

A custom-made foot orthotic helps bring the ground up to the foot at pre-determined angles so that the foot is supported in its optimal neutral position. By realigning the foot with the body, the rest of the joints and muscles can work more efficiently, thus helping to reduce or eliminate pain.

How will custom-made foot orthotics fit into my regular shoes?

There are different styles of orthotics available that are designed to fit a wide variety of shoe gear. The sole in the shoe or sneaker is removed and the orthotics is inserted in its place. They will typically last 4-5 years.

What is the difference between off-the-shelf-store-bought orthotic insoles and custom-made orthotics?

Store-bought prefabricated orthotics are not customized to your feet and therefore will have little effect on the biomechanics of your feet and help your body function better. The majority of people who need orthotics function far better with custom-made orthotics that are made specifically from cast of their feet and are designed to meet individual needs, activities and footwear.
