FAQ

What are orthotics?

Prescription orthotics are custom-made shoe inserts that are designed to correct an abnormal or irregular walking pattern and to restore proper foot function and balance. Orthotics control each phase of the walking cycle, from the moment your heel contacts the ground to when your toes push off the surface.
Orthotics can often enhance comfort and prevent additional problems from developing, such as corns and calluses. Podiatrists prescribe orthotics as a conservative approach to many foot problems.
Orthotics fall into three main categories:
1. rigid – used to control function; usually made of a firm material such as plastic or graphite
2. semi-rigid – provides dynamic balance of your foot while walking or participating in sports; helps guide your foot through proper functions, allowing muscles and tendons to perform more efficiently
3. soft – helps to absorb shock and take pressure off uncomfortable or sore spots of your feet.
How often should orthotics be replaced?
Orthotics should be replaced at least every two years.
Healthy feet are an important part of overall good health.
