Why Wear Custom Prescription Orthotics?
Sometimes we use over-the-counter shoe inserts designed to alleviate temporary or unimportant foot problems. If you are suffering from foot pain, the foot doctors at Advanas Foot & Ankle Specialists can prescribe, design and fabricate orthotic devices designed specifically for your foot condition. These perfectly match the contours of your feet, taking your individual body movements into account. We only fabricate the orthotics after conducting a complete evaluation of your medical conditions, legs, ankles and feet – that way, they serve your unique pathology and foot structure.
Custom orthotics can be used for a wide variety of foot conditions and situations. Whether you’re trying to protect your feet, increase support, or correct an existing problem, custom orthotics are created specifically for your feet and your condition. Custom orthotics can often help correct structural issues in your feet, legs, and ankles, oftentimes making them an easy and highly valuable treatment option.
If you come in to Advanas Foot & Ankle Specialists and we recommend you get custom orthotics, it may be due to one of the following things:
Just like you, your feet are unique. That means that the same orthotic that works for someone else may not work for you, which is why we offer custom orthotics, specifically tailored to your feet and condition. In order to do this, it’s important that our podiatrist first properly diagnoses the root cause of the problem you’re experiencing. Only our expert podiatrist with experience in creating custom orthotics can ensure that you get the proper orthotics for your condition. We utilize various state-of-the-art techniques such as digital gait analysis, as well as negative impression molds to make sure the orthotics are specific to you and your specific foot or ankle issue.
We pride ourselves on working with you on an individual basis for your unique needs and condition. If you’re considering custom orthotics to help with your foot or ankle condition, please allow us to properly diagnose your condition and work with you to find your best treatment option.
Frequently, insurance will pay for prescription orthotics. You may find that they cost somewhat more than over-the-counter inserts, but it’s like comparing apples and oranges. You would never consider buying eye glasses (other than reading glasses) over-the-counter. The same applies with prescription orthotics. They may cost more but in the end, you should look at them as an investment in your health.
