How Do Athletes Benefit from Custom Orthotics?

Custom Orthotics are custom-made inserts, shaped and contoured to fit inside a shoe and used to correct an irregular walking gait or provide cushioning. Orthotics come in a variety of different forms that are tailored to your feet.

Orthotics allow for the correct positioning of the feet.

Orthotics are often used by athletes including track and field runners, cyclists, professional dancers, ice skaters, and even golfers who benefit a lot from the added support that is needed thus preventing injuries from occurring. Orthotics allow for the correct positioning of the feet and also act as shock absorbers to help keep pressure and stress off the foot and ankle. They can also relieve back pain and hip pain while restoring balance and improving an athlete’s performance.

In only 15 minutes you can get measured for custom orthotics

The way they help alleviate pain is by controlling the movement of both your feet and ankles. They are custom-designed by a podiatrist or orthopedic specialist to help treat foot problems such as flat feet, spurs, arthritis of the ankle or foot, ankle sprains, weakness, and drop foot, a condition in which the patient cannot raise their foot at the ankle joint.

With custom orthotics, a patient will go through a complete examination of the foot and ankle, followed by gait analysis. Depending upon the final result of the tests, the orthotic will be tailored to the needs of the patient. After they have been fitted to the shoes, adjustments can be made to get the perfect fit and fill out the shoe. Evaluations are then usually set up to monitor the patient in the coming weeks to see how they are adjusting.
