Why orthotics from your podiatrist in the North Shore, IL, area can make your feet feel great

Do your feet hurt? Are you experiencing foot fatigue? If so, it’s time for you to discover what orthotics can do for you. Orthotics can make your feet feel wonderful by eliminating foot stress and pain. Dr. Gary Rogers at Wilmette Foot and Ankle Clinic in Wilmette, Illinois can help your feet feel well again!

The Advantages of Orthotics

Everyday stress, being on your feet for extended periods, walking on hard surfaces, aging, gaining weight, and many other factors can all work against your feet and make them feel swollen and painful. Orthotics can provide the cushion you need for your feet to feel supported and comfortable!

Your podiatrist is an expert at custom-made orthotics and deciding which orthotics are best for you and your feet. Custom-made orthotics aren’t like the store-bought one-size-fits-all type of shoe insert; they are individually crafted to help your individual feet and your individual foot issues.

Custom-made orthotics come in several types. Consider:

  • Soft orthotics, if you want help with balance and to relieve the pressure and stress on your feet; soft orthotics are a great choice for foot problems associated with diabetes, arthritis, or bone deformities.
  • Semi-rigid orthotics, if you want added support for playing sports, jogging, or walking; the layers of cushioned and rigid materials are combined into one orthotic.
  • Rigid orthotics, if you want to help with stabilization of your joints or tendons; these orthotics are helpful to relieve strained tendons and muscles. The hard plastic used in rigid orthotics provide strong support for your feet, legs, and lower back.

You and your feet deserve to be relaxed, comfortable, and supported, and orthotics can help with that!. Don’t settle for old school, grocery store orthotics when you can have orthotics that are custom-made for you and your feet.
