Benefits of Orthotics

Have you ever wondered about the benefits of orthotics? The doctors at the New Jersey Podiatric Physicians & Surgeons Group use these prescriptive devices to treat foot pain. Orthotics also improve the way patients walk by correcting alignment issues within the foot. Custom orthotics are created for each patient and are unique to individual foot needs.  

What makes custom orthotics valuable?

Before a patient receives their custom orthotics, a podiatrist takes detailed measurements and notes of their feet and ankles, including their gait — or the way a patient walks. Custom orthotics match the special contours of the feet to create a one-of-a-kind pair of supportive devices.

How can orthotics help? 

Custom orthotics can help patients find relief from pain and correct alignment issues. With each step a patient takes, they are walking towards improvement. Common conditions that can benefit from this treatment option include heel pain, hammertoes, bunions, flat feet, foot ulcers, corns, calluses, and more.

Are shoe inserts similar?

Shoe inserts can be found at your local grocery store or pharmacy. One big difference is that shoe inserts are nonprescription options for patients. If you have specific foot conditions, getting a detailed exam from a podiatrist will help you get the right treatment plan the first time.
