Custom Orthotics: A Simple Solution to Multiple Foot Problems

Custom Orthotics: A Simple Solution to Multiple Foot Problems

Foot pain is a widespread issue. Most people will suffer from foot pain at some point in their life. Your feet take a lot of stress and pressure in daily use, and this can result in foot problems and symptoms of foot pain.

Instead of suffering through foot pain, find relief with the team of podiatry experts at Annapolis Foot and Ankle Center, located in Annapolis, Stevensville, and Glen Burnie, Maryland. Among other treatments for acute and chronic foot pain, we offer custom orthotics designed with your symptoms, foot shape, and other factors in mind.

If you’re suffering from foot pain or a foot dysfunction, custom orthotics may help. Here’s what you need to know about the benefits of custom orthotics.

Creating custom orthotics

You might see shoe inserts for sale at your local drugstore or available for purchase online. The team at Annapolis Foot and Ankle Center creates prescription custom orthotics that improve on generic shoe inserts in several ways. What you get from us when you opt for custom orthotics is nothing like what you can buy over the counter!

Some providers may use flimsy materials to create an insert of a typical foot shape and common pressure points. However, we make your custom orthotics out of durable, sturdy materials like rubber, leather, or plastic, which effectively and comfortably relieve pain and other foot problems.

We create our custom orthotics individually, using state-of-the-art techniques for orthotics design and production. And before we start work on your orthotics, we study your foot shape, measurements, gait mechanics, or how you walk to ensure that your orthotics work for you.

We can design orthotics for most shoe types, including athletic and dress shoes, so you won’t have to give up on lifestyle and footwear preferences to find foot pain relief.

Therapeutic uses of custom orthotics

You might be surprised how custom orthotics can effectively address foot-related problems. The team at Annapolis Foot and Ankle Center may recommend orthotics if you have podiatry conditions, including:

If you’re living with any of these conditions, foot pain problems can intrude into your daily life. 

Instead of trying to ignore your foot pain, seek treatment today. In addition to being distracting and uncomfortable, foot pain can limit your ability to enjoy daily life and activities. And, without treatment, your foot pain problems can worsen or lead to complications affecting your back, spine, knees, or hips.

Early treatment is the best way to resolve foot pain problems. Contact Annapolis Foot and Ankle Center today for interventions that can help with your foot pain, including custom orthotics.
