Many painful foot problems are the result of a weak or imbalanced foot structure. These problems include plantar fasciitis (heel pain) and arch pain, neuroma (pinched nerve in the ball of the foot), joint pain, arthritis as well as generalized sore feet especially during or after walking or exercising. Prescription foot orthotics are often necessary to treat these painful foot problems. Similar to prescription eye glasses to correct for weak eyes, prescription foot orthotics correct for a weak or imbalanced foot structure. In order for orthotics to work properly, they need to be tailor made for your feet and your particular foot problem.
To get the proper prescription foot orthotic you need a thorough foot evaluation as well as an analysis of how you walk. Impressions are then taken of your feet while they are held in the proper, corrected position. A prescription is then sent to an orthotic lab with the impressions to get the perfect fitting and properly balancing orthotics for you.
