Orthotics are removable devices like shoe inserts and braces that align, support, and stabilize your feet and ankles.
Types of orthotics include:
Soft orthotics are made of soft, compressible materials that help absorb the shock of your movements, relieve pressure on your feet and toes, and support your balance.
Semi-rigid orthotics are made of softer materials reinforced with rigid materials. This type of orthotic supports your joints, tendons, and muscles during physical activity.
Rigid orthotics are made of firm plastics or carbon fiber. These support devices control the motion in your foot joints to keep your feet and ankles in alignment.
Capital Foot & Ankle provide custom-fitted orthotics to treat many conditions that affect your mobility and cause uncomfortable symptoms.
You need custom orthotics if you suffer from persistent pain or difficulty walking caused by:
The Capital Foot & Ankle team does comprehensive foot and ankle evaluations to identify what’s triggering your symptoms.
They might use orthotics as an initial treatment to see if your symptoms get better. They might also recommend ongoing use of orthotics with medication and other therapies to prevent foot and ankle pain.
If you need foot and ankle surgery, orthotics can support your body during recovery and lower your risk of post-surgical complications.
While over-the-counter orthotics are available at many retail stores, you’ll almost certainly get more benefits from using the custom-fitted orthotics available at Capital Foot & Ankle.
The practice’s experienced podiatrists may use advanced scanning technology to accurately measure your foot and ankle. They send your scan results to a medical lab that creates your custom-fitted orthotics.
Wearing orthotics before you have foot and ankle problems reduces your risk of pain and other symptoms later. The team will recommend which orthotics are right for you based on your overall health, lifestyle, and the physical activities you regularly engage in.
