What Are Orthotics?
Orthotics are shoe inserts used to treat many foot and ankle problems. They are very helpful in providing foot pain relief. Orthotics can alleviate foot pain while running or walking. They may also help improve your posture and alignment by correcting walking problems.
Our experts recommend orthotics when tendons, ligaments, muscles, bones, or joints cannot function optimally and cause fatigue, discomfort, and pain. A variety of materials are used to create foot orthotics, including rigid, semiflexible, semi-rigid, or accommodative. The flexibility of the material is dependent on your specific diagnosis and needs.
Types of Orthotics Based on Source
These are orthotics that you can purchase over the counter at stores to help treat minor problems, foot pain, and heel pain.
Our team of experts can prescribe custom orthotics if over-the-counter inserts are not providing foot pain relief. They are high quality and are specifically made and customized to treat issues like plantar fasciitis, abnormal motion, and extreme heel pain. Custom orthotics can also be used to help people with improperly shaped feet, since they provide comfort and support.
Types of Orthotics Based on Material
Rigid orthotics are designed to control function. They are made with firm materials, including carbon fiber or plastic, and work to relieve aches and pains in the feet or lower back.
These orthotics help improve balance, absorb shock, and relieve pressure on sore spots. Soft orthotics are just as the name suggests: soft and cozy. Arthritic, diabetic, and deformed feet patients can use soft orthotics to improve their conditions.
If you need foot balance while walking or performing a sport-related activity, semi-rigid orthotics are the best choice. A normal semi-rigid orthotic has many soft material layers that are strengthened with firmer materials.
