If you're experiencing chronic foot pain that gets in the way of your life, you may have begun to wonder if you need foot surgery in order to find relief. While surgery is sometimes the right answer, there's another option you may want to consider: Custom orthotics.
At Greater Austin Podiatry Associates, we specialize in providing custom-made orthotics to effectively treat a variety of foot and ankle ailments, including flat feet treatment. Using the latest technology available to create inserts that are unique to your individual feet, we can provide the support and flexibility needed to reduce pain and improve function.
If you're ready to find relief from your pain and discomfort with Austin's favorite foot doctor, then custom orthotics may be the right choice for you. Request your first appointment at Greater Austin Podiatry Associates today, and we'll evaluate your feet in order to determine if custom orthotics are the best option for you.
Custom orthotics are inserts that fit inside your shoe, designed specifically for the shape and structure of your foot. They support the arches of the foot, providing cushioning and stability. Orthotics can also help reduce pronation (instability due to excessive inward rolling of the foot). This can help relieve pain related to plantar fasciitis or flat feet.
At Greater Austin Podiatry Associates, we use a sophisticated 3D scanning system to create your custom orthotics. This system captures all the contours, curves and angles of your foot in order to create inserts that will fit perfectly inside your shoe./p>
You'll also have the choice between two different types of orthotics: soft or rigid. Soft orthotics are designed for those who need more cushioning, while rigid ones provide more stability and support. Your podiatrist will help you decide which type of orthotic is best for your particular situation.
In addition to providing you with the perfect inserts, we can also offer advice on how to care for your custom orthotics. Proper maintenance and cleaning techniques can keep them in top working condition for years to come.
The most common symptoms of flat feet and other deformities include:
If these symptoms sound familiar to you, it's important to consult with a podiatrist about custom orthotics as soon as possible.
Store-bought inserts are designed to be one-size-fits-all, but they don't provide the same level of precision as custom orthotics. Plus, you won't get the personalized advice and fitting that a podiatrist can provide. Custom orthotics take into account the unique shape and structure of your feet in order to provide the best support and cushioning possible.
