What can orthotics do for me?

Foot orthotics are insoles for your feet that are typically associated with people who need arch assistance; yet there are many others who can benefit. The properties within orthotics, either over-the-counter or custom made, have the purpose of ensuring the bones in your feet and ankles are generally positioned correctly. Benefits differ among different people, because individual amounts of walking, pace and stamina are not identical.

People who suffer from foot, knee and back pain are encouraged to wear orthotics regardless of your degree of pain, because it can relieve your suffering. They can also lower muscular fatigue and promote more efficient muscle performance.

Athletes may seek orthotics, because it can help increase endurance, strength and your performance. Overweight individuals can relieve the stress weight puts on the ligaments in their feet. Individuals who have diabetes or arthritis can enhance their mobility and reduce strain on parts of their body.

Ask your podiatrist whether orthotics can make you feel more comfortable, at ease and balanced one step at a time.
