CUSTOM MOLDED ORTHOTICS
What Are Ankle/Foot Orthotics?
Ankle/foot orthotics are devices that are inserted into the shoes to protect the foot from a wide range of foot problems. Orthotics are available as prefabricated over-the-counter and through a prescription for custom-made orthotics tailored to the individual. Although custom-made orthotics are generally more expensive, they may be more efficient in correcting certain foot and ankle ailments. Typically inserts can be made out of pieces of rubber, leather, plastic, or any other type of synthetic material.
Orthotic devices may be used to:
Support the foot or ankle
Align the foot or ankle
Correct/prevent foot deformities
Improve function of the lower extremity
