Orthotic therapy

What is Orthotic therapy?

Orthotic therapy is a type of treatment used by podiatrists to help alleviate pain and discomfort caused by foot and lower limb conditions. Orthotics are specialized shoe inserts that are custom-made to fit each patient’s individual foot shape and provide support and alignment to the feet and legs.

Orthotic therapy is used to treat a wide range of conditions, including plantar fasciitis, flat feet, high arches, and ankle instability. Orthotics can also be used to correct abnormal walking patterns and improve balance and posture.

During an orthotic therapy session, a podiatrist will assess the patient’s foot and lower limb alignment to determine the most appropriate type of orthotic. The podiatrist will take a mold or scan of the patient’s feet to create a custom-made orthotic that is tailored to their unique foot shape and condition.

Orthotics are typically made from materials such as foam, rubber, or plastic and are designed to fit comfortably inside the patient’s shoe. Orthotics can be worn during daily activities such as walking, standing, and running, and can help alleviate pain and discomfort caused by foot and lower limb conditions.

Orthotic therapy is a non-invasive and conservative treatment option that can help patients avoid surgery and other more invasive treatments. Orthotics can also help improve mobility and quality of life for patients with chronic foot and lower limb conditions.

In conclusion, orthotic therapy is a safe and effective treatment option for a wide range of foot and lower limb conditions. If you’re experiencing pain or discomfort in your feet or legs, contact a podiatrist today to see if orthotic therapy is right for you. With the help of a custom-made orthotic, you can improve your mobility, reduce pain, and enjoy a more active and comfortable lifestyle.
