5 Foot Problems Solved by Custom Orthotics

Lionel G. Hausman is committed to top-tier patient care, and sometimes, small steps make all the difference. At our offices, we often recommend custom orthotics for a wide variety of foot and ankle complications. This blog will delve into how orthotics help and cover some of the usual suspects necessitating their use. Read on for fitter feet!

What Are Custom Orthotics?

Unlike generic inserts, which are “one-size-fits-all” and offer limited relief, custom orthotics are crafted to match your unique foot shape and biomechanics. This tailored fit provides:

  • Targeted support to address issues like flat feet, overpronation, or bunions.
  • Long-lasting comfort due to durable materials used in their construction.
  • Improved balance and gait to correct misalignment, which can cause pain in your feet, knees, hips, and even your back!

Custom Orthotics Step in to Support

All of the issues below can be managed and improved via the use of specialized orthotic inserts.

  • Plantar FasciitisThis heel pain is often caused by inflammation of the plantar fascia tissue. Custom orthotics provide arch support and distribute pressure evenly, reducing pain and promoting healing.
  • Bunions and Hammertoes: These bony misalignments can lead to discomfort and difficulty walking. Custom orthotics gently realign the toes and joints, alleviating pain and preventing further progression.
  • Flat Feet and Overpronation: When the arches of your feet collapse inward, orthotics provide arch support and correct overpronation, reducing pain and improving balance.
  • Arthritis Pain: Osteoarthritis in the feet can make everyday activities painful. Custom orthotics cushion joints and absorb shock, easing discomfort and improving mobility.
  • Heel Pain: Whether you’re suffering from a spur, fracture, or stone bruise, custom orthotics can stabilize the heel, reduce inflammation, and promote faster healing.

Clearly, orthotics have a lot to offer. If you’re aching and in need of relief, we hope you’ll trust us to provide inserts that are just as unique as your own two feet!
