Our podiatrists use orthotics to help thousands of patients every year with problems and pains in their feet, legs, knees, hips and back. So, if you’ve ever wondered how these prescription insoles work on a large variety of problems for people of all ages and activity levels, or if you may need them, this is for you.
How can orthotics help treat so many different problems?
Orthotics can help so many pains and problems for the same reason that glasses from your optometrist can help almost anyone see clearly, regardless of their sight variations. Custom orthotics are prescribed by your qualified podiatrist, specifically for your problem, foot type, the results of your assessment, and what you need to achieve the best results for your feet. This means that no pair of orthotics are the same, even if they look similar – just like glasses.
