How orthotics from your podiatrist can help you
Do your feet hurt when you stand or walk? Do you feel like you need more support for your feet? If this sounds like you, it’s time to discover custom orthotics! They can help take the stress off your feet and your body.
Dr. Gary Rogers at Wilmette Foot and Ankle Clinic in Wilmette, IL, provides a wide range of foot care services, including orthotics. He proudly serves residents of Wilmette, North Shore, Skokie, and Evanston, IL.
Not all orthotics are created equal. If you buy a pair of over-the-counter orthotics, they are a one-size-fits-all purchase. When you go to your podiatrist and choose custom orthotics, they are created just for you and your unique feet.
Custom orthotics can help ease the burden of tired, aching feet, providing comfort and stability to your feet and your lower body.
Custom orthotics may be just the answer you need if you suffer from:
- Plantar fasciitis
- Flat feet
Let’s look at different types of custom orthotics. You can choose from:
Rigid orthotics, made entirely from hard plastic materials. They provide great support for your feet. They can help take pressure off your feet, legs, and your lower back, relieving joint and tendon stress.
Semi-rigid orthotics, made from a combination of soft and rigid materials. They are a great choice if you play sports with a heavy amount of foot pressure, like running, basketball, and tennis.
Soft orthotics, made entirely soft materials. These orthotics are an excellent option to cushion feet that are suffering from arthritis, diabetes, or bone issues. Soft orthotics can help relieve foot pain, so you can stay active comfortably.
