HOW ORTHOTIC INSERTS HELP YOUR FEET, ANKLES, KNEES, AND BACK

The use of custom orthotic shoe inserts and devices can provide more support and treat abnormalities in foot structure that cause many foot and ankle problems. The improved spinal alignment also helps treat knee, back and hip issues.

 

Basic inserts like generic arch and heel supports can be purchased at shoe stores and pharmacies. These may be adequate in many cases, but the custom orthotics available from your foot doctor will fit your precise foot shape and provide superior performance. Specially-made orthotic braces can be used with properly-fitted shoes to increase ankle support and stability.

Orthotic inserts help in many ways including the following:

They provide proper arch and heel support—Correct arch support is required to optimize your foot performance. Custom orthotic inserts are created with the aid of a computerized gait analysis to detect problems with pronation.
By increasing balance and stability—Orthotics can be used to support weak ankles and increase balance, thereby decreasing the chances of suffering a debilitating fall and injury.
Treating and preventing injuries and infections—Feet that are weakened by diabetic peripheral neuropathy are more susceptible to injuries and wounds that don’t heal properly. Custom orthotics can be used to redirect pressure away from injuries and cuts to help promote healing.
Prevent or delay the need for surgery—Custom-made orthotics are used to treat a wide variety of foot and ankle problems, and in many cases they can greatly delay or avoid the need for any surgery.
A precisely-fitted orthotic insert will provide quick relief and help prevent future problems.
