Did you know custom orthotics can improve your quality of life? Standard over the counter shoe inserts are not custom-designed for your feet and can end up causing more pain instead of relieving it.
Custom orthotics are designed to support the problem areas in your feet and to fully address foot issues that are specific to you, such as Plantar Fasciitis, Flat Foot, and foot pain.
Dr. Kane will screen your feet for structural irregularities like high or low arches. This screening will also identify any instabilities or gait problems caused by structural issues in your foot that can lead to ankle, knee, hip, and even lower back pain.
It’s important to understand that custom orthotics are far superior to any over-the-counter shoe inserts you can buy at the store. These shoe inserts can’t relieve the variety of symptoms that custom orthotics can, and often end up causing more pain instead of relieving it.
Custom foot orthotics can improve your quality of life!
Although there could be other underlying conditions that contribute to the conditions below, custom orthotics are typically effective for:
Dr. Kane will conduct a complete evaluation of your feet and ankles and determine if custom orthotics are a good fit for you.
If orthotics are needed, we perform a scan and/or molding of your feet to create a set of custom orthotics that will improve your foot movement and lead to more comfort and mobility.
It typically takes around 2 weeks for orthotics to be manufactured and ready for you to return to the office and be fitted.
Custom orthotics are specially crafted to match the contours of your feet precisely to help treat various conditions:
Functional orthotics are usually crafted of a semi-flexible to rigid material such as polypropylene orgraphite. They may be used to treat foot pain caused by abnormal motion; they can also be used to treat injuries such as shin splints or tendinitis.
Accommodative orthotics are softer and meant to provide additional cushioning and support. They can be used to treat diabetic foot ulcers, painful calluses on the bottom of the foot, and other uncomfortable conditions.
We are looking forward to helping you with all your foot and ankle needs!
