Custom Foot Orthotics

Lower back pain? Leg fatigue? Pain at the ball of your foot? Ankle instability? Many are surprised to learn that imbalances of the foot and ankle often lead to chronic pain and a host of musculoskeletal conditions.

What are custom foot orthotics?

Custom-made foot orthotics are specially-designed removable inserts fitted from a heat-molded impression of your foot. Worn inside your shoes, custom orthotics work to eliminate the need for your body to compensate for the misalignment of your feet, ankles, knees, hips or back.

How do custom orthotics reduce or eliminate pain?

Because most individuals suffer from some form of misalignment, most everyone could benefit from custom-made orthotics. Talk with your HMG primary care provider to determine if custom orthotics might be right for you.

Why custom-made orthotics when I can buy store-bought orthotic insoles?

Store-bought orthotics are made for a wide-variety of feet and are not specially designed to meet your individual biomedical needs. Following a bio-mechanical analysis of your gait pattern, your foot function and your foot structure, measurements are taken for a heat-molded, custom-fabricated orthotic.

Will custom-made orthotics fit into my regular shoes?

Most often, yes. There are a variety of styles available, ranging from athletic shoes to men’s and women’s dress shoes, even pediatric and diabetic shoes.

Who should wear custom-made orthotics?

Because most individuals suffer from some form of misalignment, most everyone could benefit from custom-made orthotics. Talk with your HMG primary care provider to determine if custom orthotics might be right for you.
