Orthotics are orthopedic devices designed to treat or adjust various biomechanical foot disorders and conditions. At Advanced Physicians, we believe that custom-fitting foot orthotics for our patients provide the best results to reduce foot pain and increase biomechanical function. The custom-fitting process can be performed in each clinic and requires us to create a custom impression of each foot. These custom impressions are then sent out to specialists in an orthotic laboratory to create a foot cast or mold. Once this cast is produced, modifications can be made to correct any misalignments with various durable materials and stabilization techniques. Depending on the patient’s gender, activity level, and specific area of pain, the foot orthotic may have padding to absorb the forces created in the foot during weight-bearing. The finished custom foot orthotic is then placed in the patient’s shoe and helps keep the foot in proper alignment.
