How Orthotic Inserts Support Your Feet


Orthotic devices are customized inserts that are designed according to the size and shape of your feet. Their purpose is to provide support in such a manner that no area of the foot suffers from excess or undue stress caused by your bodyweight.  

These inserts are also extremely beneficial when engaging in sports or athletic activities as they appropriate your weight among different areas of the feet to achieve proper functioning and optimal health levels. 

Orthotic insert devices are known to treat and prevent numerous foot conditions; some of the most common ones are listed below: 

  • Heel pains, especially associated with Plantar Fasciitis

  • Pain caused by flat feet or other arch related problems

  • Bone protrusions or joint deformities like bunions and hammertoes

  • Weakening of the ankle muscles and ankle sprains

  • Injuries, wounds and foot ulcers associated with diabetes

  • Excessive shocks experienced during various sports activities

At Foot and Ankle Associates, LLP, we encourage people to get their feet examined thoroughly so that your podiatrists may diagnose and treat your foot conditions in a timely manner. The examination will reveal your foot type and expose your pressure points; which will enable you to get the right orthotic inserts that best meet your requirements. 

Orthotics provide the stability and strength that is most notably required by your ankle muscles and your feet; especially if you are suffering from diabetes.
