An orthotic is a custom-made insole used to relieve pain and improve gait efficiency. Unlike the orthotics and insoles found in stores or online, our orthotics are custom, made to address your problems and gait style, and made with the right materials to fit your needs.
Some conditions that will benefit from an orthotic are:
- Plantar fasciitis
- Heel pain
- Flat feet
- Neuroma pain
- Arthritic pain
- Leg length discrepancy
What to expect:
The consultation takes about 45 minutes and includes a discussion on current and past pains and problems, an evaluation of your foot type, flexibility, range of motion and and assessment of the way you move your lower extremity joints while walking/running.
Impressions of your feet are then taken so that a custom orthotic can be made from this, just for you.
Lifetime of orthotics and cost:
A softer, shock absorbing orthotic is $95 and will last about a year, depending on how many miles you put them through.
A supportive, firmer orthotic is $400 and will last about 5 years, sometimes more!
The style of orthotic you get depends on your foot type and your needs. This is discussed during your consultation.
We also offer DIABETIC INSOLES which are specialized orthotics designed to reduce pressure points, reduce risk of ulceration, and provide comfort. These are available for diabetics and non-diabetics alike. A full evaluation of your feet, gait, and needs is included to provide you with the best custom insole for you. One pair is $65, three pair for $150.
