Do you find yourself stepping out of bed in the morning and wincing at the soreness in your feet? Are you less active than you'd like to be, avoiding the activities you used to love because your feet hurt?
Orthotics can help! Whether you are experiencing foot or heel pain, if you have an abnormal foot structure, or if you're simply an active person looking for extra support, orthotics may be right for you.
What Are Orthotics?
Orthotics can refer to over-the-counter insoles or the more sophisticated custom inserts. Custom orthotics are made from a cast of your unique foot structure. This ensures a perfect fit and optimal support. We use orthotics to treat a wide range of ages and a variety of foot conditions. Because we place your foot in the proper positioning when casting, the orthotics train your feet in a sense. Within no time, your feet will adjust to the new positioning, and you'll be back to enjoying your favorite activities.
Conditions Treated With Custom Orthotics
Many foot conditions can be alleviated through the use of custom orthotics. Keep in mind that many people who don't have foot pain opt for orthotics to increase support and avoid foot issues later on.
Some of the more common conditions include the following:
- Plantar Fasciitis
If you have diabetes, custom insoles can help you avoid calluses or even ulcers from forming due to improper foot positioning.
How Much Do Custom Orthotics Cost?
The main reason people choose not to get custom orthotics is the price tag. That being said, custom orthotics are billable to your insurance, unlike over-the-counter insoles. Our knowledgeable office staff can contact your insurance company for you and obtain plan details and coverage information as a courtesy to you.
If you don't have coverage for orthotics or are worried about paying for them, let us know! We accept Care Credit. You can also use an HSA or FSA or set up a payment plan before picking them up.
Custom Orthotics Can Work For You
Our patients have had great success with custom orthotics. We recently had a patient complete a large chunk of the Appalachian Trail while wearing the custom orthotics he received from us! Talk about a testimonial.
