Do you ever find yourself wanting your shoes to be more comfortable? Maybe if they had a little more padding on this part of the shoe, you would be able to wear them for a bit longer. If only there was more arch support, you wouldn’t suffer from chronic plantar fasciitis. Is there a way to find comfort without buying new shoes altogether?

orthotics

Yes! Orthotics to the rescue!

Sometimes, finding comfort and extra support can be as simple as adding over-the-counter orthotic inserts. If your shoes are in good condition, other than making your feet tired, you may just need some arch pads, ball of feet pads, or heel cups to stabilize your feet. Shoes like high heels, flats, and some sandals need some orthotic inserts to reduce foot pain for a long day of standing or walking.

For other issues, like foot deformities (e.g. bunions or hammertoes), you may need custom-made orthotics. They might be inserts or whole shoes that are custom-formed for your specific needs. For example, your feet may not fit into typical shoe shapes if you have a severe bunion deformity. The orthotic shoe can help prevent worsening symptoms and allow for foot comfort from chronic pain and other symptoms.

Additionally, some people may need temporary orthotic support when rehabilitating from an injury. Foot or ankle braces can ensure that bones and soft tissues heal properly. It can also support the ankle joints so they may continue to function while the healing tissues are gaining strength.  

Furthermore, children who might have developmental issues or injuries can also benefit from orthotics. Using orthotics can help correct problems like pigeon-toeing, overpronation, or Sever’s Disease.

There is a broad range of orthotics that can help with many different situations for your family’s feet and ankles. If you think that you or a family member can benefit from orthotics, make an appointment today at Clark Podiatry Center. Our board-certified podiatrist, Dr. Brandon Macy will assess your feet to find the best treatments or solutions for your feet.
