Orthotics Q & A

How can orthotics help me?

Your podiatrist may recommend getting fitted for prescription custom orthotics if you have a chronic condition of your lower extremities or if you experienced an injury or trauma.

Since custom orthotics are perfectly fabricated to support every contour of your feet, they’re beneficial for helping with:

  • Arthritis
  • Flat feet
  • Heel spurs
  • Shin splints
  • Sport injuries
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Achilles tendonitis
  • Corns and calluses
  • Hammertoes or bunions
  • Heel, foot, leg, hip, or back pain

Your podiatrist might also encourage you to get a pair of prescription custom orthotics if you have diabetes. Personalized orthotics help prevent diabetic foot wounds and off-load pressure if you have an ulcer that needs to heal.

What is the process of getting orthotics?

The podiatrists at Apple Podiatry Group use state-of-the-art technology to scan each of your feet for the most precise measurements. After gathering digital molds of your feet and talking with you about your diagnosis, your podiatrist sends your information to a podiatric lab.

Because your orthotic molds are digital, it speeds up the design process for faster turnaround time. This way, you can slip in your new custom orthotics within a few days to get the pain relief you need.

Do I need to wear orthotics every day?

Ideally, yes. Your podiatrist recommended orthotics because you have pain, inflammation, aching, or swelling, and you need to heal.

Wearing your custom orthotics daily ensures your feet get the support they need to promote healing, take pressure off your feet, and properly realign your entire skeleton.

If you’re worried that your orthotics won’t fit into each of the shoes you wear, talk with your podiatrist at Apple Podiatry Group.

They may suggest shoe inserts, like arch supports or heel liners, for those times when you’re in dress shoes or other footwear that can’t accommodate orthotics.

You may also need different pairs of orthotics, such as one set for your gym shoes and another set for the shoes you wear at the office. In any case, you have plenty of options available for orthotic inserts at Apple Podiatry Group.
