Over-the-counter orthotics are generally a one-size-fits-all product. Custom prescription orthotics are specially created to the unique structure of your feet. They are designed to match the precise way that you move, cushioning, and supporting with each step. Orthotics are made after a podiatrist has conducted a complete evaluation of your feet, ankles, and legs so that the orthotic can accommodate your unique foot structure and pathology.
Prescription orthotics are divided into two categories:
Podiatrists use orthotics to treat a variety of foot problems. They examine your feet and the way you walk to evaluate how you stand and move. This helps the podiatrist design custom inserts that meet your specific needs. Podiatrist-prescribed foot orthotics decrease foot pain and improve function. Dr. Cunha at Gotham Footcare PC offers custom-made orthotics to help treat foot conditions for both children and adults.
