Foot Orthotics – Arch Supports

arch support for foot painThese are called orthotics or orthoses and fit into your shoes and support your foot. An orthotic can either be a custom device (most people opt for these) or an off the shelf device. A custom device can last many years whilst an off the shelf will usually last about a year.

A custom orthotic is made by casting your feet in plaster. The casts are sent to an orthotic laboratory to be made off site.

An orthotic can change the way your foot works and improve your gait and posture. Orthotics have been shown to change not only your foot and ankle function, but also your knee and lower back alignment. Therefore, orthotics can treat foot, ankle, knee and lower back pain. An orthotic can be comfortable immediately although sometimes it can take up to a week to get thoroughly used to them.
