Custom shoe inserts can help relieve your back, leg or foot pain.
Custom-fit orthotics are shoe inserts that control how your foot and lower body align. They can relieve foot, leg and lower back pain in many patients whose bodies are not aligned properly. Orthotics also act as shock absorbers for your feet.
If your doctor feels you could benefit from orthotics, a casting of your foot will be taken and a custom device will be fabricated to fit your needs. An Affinity doctor will fit your orthotics when they arrive. Orthotics are available to work with most types of footwear.
Doctors recommend orthotics to patients with many conditions, including:
- foot malalignment
- plantar fascitis – heel pain
- bunions (hallux valgus)
- stiff big toe (hallux rigidus)
- heel bursitis
- hip bursitis
- Achilles tendonitis
