What Are Orthotics?

Orthotics are medical devices that fit into your shoes to provide added support and corrective readjustment of the muscles, bones and tendons in your feet and ankles. Insoles, heel cups and arch supports are among the most common types of orthotics. Custom orthotics generally fall into two categories:

Functional orthotics

Functional orthotics are designed to prevent certain ranges of motion and to support the foot to correct issues with gait or stance. These devices use hard plastic or other semi-rigid materials to provide adequate support and correction.

Accommodative orthotics

Accommodative orthotics are softer than their functional counterparts. These devices offer real relief for pain and discomfort by creating a soft cushion between feet and footwear.

Our team will provide you with the right solution for your needs and your feet and ankles. The professionals at Ideal Foot & Ankle Group are committed to help you

Over-the-counter vs. Custom Orthotics

The custom and prescription orthotics we offer through Ideal Foot & Ankle Group are designed specifically to fit your foot. This distinguishes them from over-the-counter orthotics that are advertised to fit almost everyone and rarely fit any individual properly. Because the foot orthotics we provide are fitted specifically to you, they can provide the necessary support and added comfort needed to help you walk more easily and in a pain-free way. This can allow the greatest degree of correction by your functional orthotics and the most painless experience from accommodative orthotics devices from our office.

Using Your Custom Foot Orthotics

You should wear your orthotics devices every day to achieve the best results. Custom orthotics are considered to be prescription medical devices. This means that they are therapeutically necessary to help you walk and even run without pain. Your health insurance will typically cover some of the cost of these devices, especially if they are intended to relieve pain or to improve mobility. The experts at Ideal Foot & Ankle Group will work with you to make sure your care is as affordable and effective as possible.
