The team at New Age Foot & Ankle Surgery prescribes custom orthotics to accommodate your particular needs.
Because foot orthotics are customizable, they can address a wide range of symptoms. Foot orthotics may be right for you if you experience foot pain or discomfort due to an injury or deformity like hammertoe.
Foot orthotics can correct structural abnormalities and help your foot and ankle function better. They can improve your stride while walking and running and reduce the risk of injuries down the road.
The team at New Age Foot & Ankle Surgery uses foot orthotics as a nonsurgical treatment for many conditions, such as:
Orthotics can also help support proper positioning of your feet and ankles, which can relieve pain and dysfunction in other areas of your body like the back and knees.
Orthotics come in a wide variety of shapes, sizes, and materials. The team at New Age Foot & Ankle Surgery creates a custom orthotic to suit your specific needs. Different types of orthotics include:
Rigid or functional orthotics are usually made of hard materials like carbon fiber or plastic. They treat foot pain due to abnormal motion and injuries like tendonitis and shin splints.
Soft orthotics are accommodative and meant to provide extra cushioning and support. Soft orthotics can relieve pressure from painful conditions like foot ulcers and calluses.
Shoe inserts are orthotics that fit in the bottom of your shoes. They custom mold to your feet and fit perfectly inside your shoes.
