Orthotics are special inserts placed inside the shoes to correct a variety of foot problems, as well as alleviate the pain or discomfort orthoticsassociated with those conditions. Some types of orthotics are available over-the-counter, but they only treat minor symptoms. Custom orthotics are available through your podiatrist and can treat a wider range of foot problems, as well as provide superior results versus over-the-counter products. At Advanced Pace Foot and Ankle Center, Dr. Angelo Pace is your Alexandria, VA, foot doctor for custom orthotics.

What Are Custom Orthotics?

Custom orthotics are special shoe inserts customized to your feet for correcting a specific foot condition or problem. Some custom orthotics provide cushioning to protect your feet from the impact of such activities as running, walking, or exercising. Other types of custom orthotics provide additional support in the arch of the foot for patients with insufficient natural arches. Custom orthotics correct foot positioning and alleviate foot strain. Incorrect foot positioning puts a strain on the feet and leads to pain and discomfort.

Your Alexandria foot doctor can recommend the appropriate type of custom orthotic for you. Custom orthotics are available in three main types:

  • Rigid Orthotics — Correct and control foot positioning when walking and alleviate pain and discomfort in the legs and lower back.
  • Semi-Rigid Orthotics — Correct foot positioning and improve foot balance while participating in athletic activities. Also helpful for treating children with flat feet.
  • Soft Orthotics — Provide cushioned support, absorb shock, and alleviate pressure on sensitive areas, such as the balls of the feet. An effective option for patients with diabetes, arthritis in the feet, or foot deformities.

Custom orthotics are right for you if you suffer from any type of foot condition that is putting a strain on your feet and causing pain and discomfort. Custom orthotics are perfectly tailored to your feet and can be used to treat a variety of foot conditions. To learn more about how custom orthotics can help you, schedule a consultation with Dr. Pace, your Alexandria, VA, foot doctor, by calling Advanced Pace Foot and Ankle Center at (703) 971-7100.
