Regarding Orthotics

 

What are orthotics?

In most cases, podiatrists prescribe and construct foot orthotics. These are specially-designed devices that are worn inside the shoe to control abnormal foot function and/or accommodate painful areas of the foot. Properly-designed foot orthotics may compensate for impaired foot function by controlling abnormal motion across the joints of the foot. This is likely to cause a dramatic improvement in foot symptoms.

Orthotic inserts are usually made from rigid materials, especially plastics and carbon-fiber composites. They are constructed upon a plaster impression of the feet, and modified based on the podiatrist’s evaluation of your problem. They are normally quite comfortable, and do not feel hard or uncomfortable in the shoe. Rigid orthotics normally last for years, but additions such as top covers and extensions may require periodic replacement.  Some patients, for example the very elderly, may not tolerate rigid functional orthotics. Under these circumstances, the podiatrist will prescribe an orthotic made from softer materials with special accommodations for painful areas. Many different materials can be utilized, such as rubber, cork, leather, and soft synthetic plastics. The podiatrist is in the unique position of being able to evaluate, diagnose, and treat your foot or leg problems. If orthotics are indicated, he or she can utilize the most advanced methods of construction to create the perfect orthotic inserts for your feet!

Orthotics that are prescribed by the podiatrist and custom made for your feet, should not be confused with over the counter arch supports. These may help the occasional patient with minor arch discomfort, but they frequently fail because they do not properly control foot function and/or do not properly fit the patient’s feet.  The consumer should beware of individuals with little or no training who hold themselves out as experts on foot problems and orthotics. Only a podiatrist, medical doctor or specially-trained chiropractor can diagnose foot problems and offer alternative treatment plans such as orthotics.  If complications develop, the podiatrist is there to evaluate and treat those.  He or she can offer the patient alternative treatments, be they medical, orthopedic, or surgical.
