Flat Feet / Custom Orthotics
Custom orthotics come in all shapes and sizes and are designed to better support the feet. Some conditions that orthotics can help with are flat feet, high arches, shin splints, tendonitis, and more.
What are orthotics?
You probably spend a lot of your day on your feet, which have to bear the weight of your entire body. Although supportive shoes can help, your feet are unique, slightly different in size and shape from everyone else’s feet. When you buy shoes from any store, they aren’t made to perfectly fit and support your exact feet.
Orthotics are custom-made insoles that perfectly support your feet. They are a noninvasive, nonsurgical way to improve the function of your feet and relieve any discomfort you’re experiencing.
What are flat feet?
Flat feet is a condition in which the soles of your feet don’t have a significant curve to them, allowing the entire surface of your foot to touch the ground when you’re standing. Most commonly caused by improper development during childhood, flat feet can also be the result of an injury, obesity, diabetes, or aging.
Custom orthotics can help flat feet by providing the exact support your feet need in order to prevent knee or ankle pain that is being caused by your flat feet.
We create custom orthotics to:
- Prevent injury if you walk or stand excessively
- Increase strength and performance if you’re an athlete
- Prevent diabetic foot issues such as ulcers
No two people have the same feet, and therefore no two people should use the same orthotic. We have the expertise to correctly diagnose your foot problem and ensure that your orthotic is right for you.
