Adam F. Resnikoff, DPM is a renowned foot and ankle specialist who has helped countless patients overcome a range of foot and ankle conditions. One of the key services that Dr. Resnikoff offers is custom orthotics. In this article, we will take a closer look at what custom orthotics are, why they are important, and how Dr. Resnikoff can help you get the right orthotics for your needs.
What are custom orthotics?
Custom orthotics are specialized shoe inserts that are designed to provide support and cushioning to the feet. Unlike off-the-shelf inserts that are mass-produced, custom orthotics are made to fit the unique shape and contours of an individual’s foot. They are prescribed by a podiatrist or foot and ankle specialist like Dr. Resnikoff to help alleviate foot and ankle pain, correct gait issues, and prevent future injuries.
Why are custom orthotics important?
Our feet are the foundation of our body, and they take a lot of wear and tear throughout our lives. Over time, this wear and tear can lead to a range of foot and ankle conditions, including plantar fasciitis, flat feet, and bunions. Custom orthotics help to alleviate these conditions by providing additional support and cushioning to the feet. They can also help to correct gait issues, such as overpronation or supination, which can lead to pain and injury if left unaddressed.
Custom orthotics can treat a variety of conditions and improve the functionality of your feet. Some conditions that can be treated with orthotics include:
- Aching feet
- Ankle pain
- Arch pain
- Chronic foot pain
- Diabetic related pain
- Flat feet
- Foot injuries
- Heel pain
- High arches
- Knee pain
- Lower back pain
- Plantar fasciitis
