Orthotics Q & A

Why do I need custom orthotics?

Many men and women who have foot or ankle pain try finding relief through over-the-counter shoe inserts or supports. In some cases, these one-size-fits-all orthotics provide temporary relief. Other times, the inserts can worsen your condition since you get too much or too little support.

Custom orthotics are designed specifically for your feet. They give you a precise level of support and are effective for improving all kinds of ailments. Custom orthotics can help with:

  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Flat feet or high arches
  • Bunions or hammertoes
  • Calluses or corns
  • Ankle instability

Because custom orthotics help put your entire body into proper alignment, you might even experience relief from other issues, like lower back pain.

How are custom orthotics made?

New York Foot Center is home to one of the leading custom orthotic design machines. Dr. Robertson has you stand on the machine’s platform to evaluate your alignment issues. Once he gathers your measurements and checks your alignment, he sends your details to a specialized lab that will make your orthotics.

Your custom orthotics usually arrive in the office in about a week or two. Dr. Robertson has you in for a follow-up visit wearing your typical pair of shoes. That way he can have you try on the inserts and ensure they fit you properly.

When will I feel relief with custom orthotics?

The benefit of custom orthotics is that you should feel relief from your condition right away. As soon as you slip into your shoes and start walking around, you’re likely going to notice an improvement.

If you have raw skin, such as over a bunion or hammertoe, you might need to let that area heal for a few days before noticing optimal results from your orthotics. Dr. Robertson can help you apply temporary padding or tape to improve your healing process so you get the most out of your custom orthotics.
