23 Oct Custom Orthotics and Foot Conditions
Custom orthotics can help with a variety of foot conditions that cause discomfort or pain.
Orthotics refers to molded pieces of rubber, metal, plastic or other materials that are inserted into shoes to balance the foot better or to provide support to the foot. Orthotics redistribute weight and relieve pressure on the foot in case of structural or biomechanical issues. They also cushion and protect sensitive areas in the foot from excessive weight and pressure while walking or running.
While orthotics shoe inserts are available at pharmacies over-the-counter, but correcting foot biomechanical issues will take more than a one-size-fits-all product. Custom orthotics are more efficient at resolving your foot issue. Custom orthotics are custom-created specifically for your foot conditions and symptoms.
