Orthotic Inserts for Flat Feet and Plantar Fasciitis
There are shoe inserts and prescribed custom orthotics for flat feet, plantar fasciitis and other maladies that affect one’s feet. To be clear there is a difference between the two: inserts you can buy over the counter, custom orthotics is by prescription from a doctor. In many circumstances, they can both accomplish the same thing; both inserts and custom orthotics work for a variety of issues, but not all.
Whether it is a custom orthotic or an insert, they work well when done right. Feet are much like the foundation of a house. If the foundation is misaligned, the rest of the house above is going to have some problems: knees, hips, back and even the neck. Both devices can be just as effective when partnered with stretching, physical therapy, or even some modifications in an exercise routine.
Only a podiatrist experienced in complex foot and ankle injuries can accurately diagnose the need for a medical device – inserts and orthotics are not a panacea for every issue. We match either an insert or an orthotic to what your specific problem is.
