Custom foot orthotics are custom made inserts that fit in your shoes. These inserts are medically proven to help eliminate pain and improve alignment. Following a thorough biomechanical evaluation, measurements of your foot and leg are taken and a cast is made of your foot. From the measurements and cast, a custom orthotic is made. This orthotic shoe insert will mold directly to your foot. You will also have a special fitting of the orthotic once it is constructed by the lab, and future modifications are provided if needed. Edge Physical Therapy & Rehabilitation also provides expertise and education in the selection of proper footwear, as well as over the counter orthotic devices.
Benefits of foot orthotics:
- Decrease pain and foot pressure
- Improve support and stability
- Accommodate foot deformities
- Improve posture and balance
- Injury prevention
- Enhance comfort
Orthotics can help a variety of issues, from foot pain due to plantarfasciitis or neuroma, while also helping to relieve pain at the knee and back that may be aggravated by alignment issues from the foot and lower leg.
Custom Orthotics are available as a cash pay service but are often covered by your medical insurance. Please contact us if you wish for us to look into this coverage for you.
