Foot and Ankle Center of Arizona is a leader in foot orthotic therapy in Arizona. Foot orthotics are custom made shoe inserts that are medically proven to eliminate pain and discomfort. Many common complaints such as heel pain, knee pain and lower back pain are caused by poor foot biomechanics. There is much more to a custom foot orthotic than what appears and a significant difference as compared to an arch support. Orthotics realign the structure of the foot and leg to prevent bone mal-alignment as well as muscle, tendon and ligament fatigue.
Not all shoe inserts are identical, there are well made orthotics customized to correct your problem and there are poorly made inserts you may purchase at many retail establishment.
Here are three important components to ensure you receive the best possible orthotic device:
- An accurate cast of your foot is a very critical process as your foot must be placed in a precise position to ensure the best clinical result.
- Your prescription should specifically address your problem, your activities and your shoes.
- A high quality orthotic Laboratory should be selected to manufacture the quality you are looking for. We use a laboratory that is considered by many to be the highest quality laboratory in the nation.
