Feel the Power of Orthotics


Orthotics are very useful and helpful foot support devices that can bring about lasting relief to a variety of foot conditions you may be experiencing. Orthotics can be generic or custom-made, tailored to the exact proportions of your feet. Orthotics can alter the burden placed on specific areas of your feet and help to reduce discomfort caused by a variety of foot and ankle conditions. They can also support mobility and counteract foot issues such as tendonitis or plantar fasciitis. Orthotics can alleviate pain for those with arthritis, tendinitis and other foot or ankle pain. Additionally, orthotics can provide alignment, relieve pain, halt deformities, permit greater mobility and deliver steadiness in your feet. An extensive choice of orthotics is offered for diverse foot complications. The relief they can bring is well worth the time and money they may cost. Providing relief from foot pain can bring about needed peace in your daily routine.

The Benefits of Orthotics:

  • Orthotics can help to avoid surgery.

  • Similarly, if surgery is absolutely required, orthotics can also reduce pain during recovery. Orthotics can help swollen or injured areas of the foot stay clear of troublesome friction that may cause further irritation.

  • Orthotics can be used to alleviate everyday foot pain caused by a variety of reasons.

  • Diabetics can use orthotics to stop further irritation to their feet from causing serious problems.

Orthotics can play a very important and beneficial role in your long-term foot and ankle health. The support that they can provide to your feet will be transferred to the rest of your body through the support that your feet will give. By preventing pain radiating from your feet upwards, your health can benefit immensely. Here at Performance Foot & Ankle Specialists, LLC, our podiatrist, Joel S.
