Custom Orthotics Q&A

What are custom orthotics?

Custom orthotics available at West Beverly Podiatry Group are shoe inserts personalized to your unique needs. Such foot pads or heel inserts mold perfectly to the shape and size of your foot. They treat common conditions that negatively affect your feet and ankles and may even reduce back, hip, or knee pain. 

The West Beverly Podiatry Group specialists have many years of experience in creating custom orthotics and offer highly effective solutions.

Who benefits from custom orthotics?

The West Beverly Podiatry Group team may recommend custom orthotics if you struggle with:

  • Foot pain
  • Heel pain
  • Ankle discomfort
  • Bunions
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Achilles tendonitis
  • Flat feet
  • High arches
  • Abnormal gait
  • Ongoing foot stress

  • Arthritis 
  • Bone spurs
  • Lower limb length discrepancy
  • Corns
  • Calluses
  • Morton’s neuroma

Orthotics can better align and properly support your feet and ankles, preventing or correcting common irregularities. They also improve the overall function of your lower extremities and reduce the stress placed on your ankle and heel during physical activity.

Are custom orthotics right for me?

The West Beverly Podiatry Group team reviews your symptoms, lifestyle, and medical history to determine if you’re a candidate for custom orthotics. They examine your feet and ankles, gait, and lower extremities’ overall structure and function.

You might need blood testing, nerve tests, X-rays, or other imaging procedures that allow your podiatrist to diagnose your condition and treat it properly.

What happens when being fitted for orthotics?

The West Beverly Podiatry Group team uses cutting-edge technologies and methods to fit your feet for custom orthotics. They send the information to a lab to create your new orthotics. When they’re ready, you can begin wearing the custom-made shoe inserts.

How often should I wear my new orthotics?

Your podiatrist ensures the custom orthotics fit properly, and they show you how to insert and adequately wear your new orthotics. It’s essential to follow the instructions and wear your orthotics as directed. You might wear them all day or only during certain activities. 

It’s important to follow up with your specialist periodically for evaluations. Don’t hesitate to call the office with questions or concerns at any time.
