Orthotics are orthopedic devices made of lightweight materials that range in complexity from simple shoe inserts bought over-the-counter to custom-made devices that require impressions, casting, and computer technology to create.
The two should not be confused, however, since there is a great difference is quality and effectiveness.
Mass-produced, “one-size-fits-all” orthotics cost less, but do not always properly correct the problem in the buyer’s foot, and they sometimes do more harm than good. Still, the purpose of all orthotics is to permit the healing of various foot conditions such as Achilles tendonitis, bunions, plantar fasciitis, and tarsal tunnel syndrome, among others.
Why did the custom orthotics I receive not help and may seem to have made it worse?
Custom orthotics are made by first taking a mold of your foot. Then various modifications are made to the mold to offset the pressure which is causing the pain. Unfortunately, many patients go to doctors and therapists and receive ONLY a mold of their foot without modifications. They believe they received a custom orthotic……they did not. They simply received a mold of their foot. For years I have been taking ineffective or uncomfortable molds other doctors have made and modifying them for the patient making them both comfortable and effective.
