Foot orthotics are custom-made devices that are worn in your shoes. Our 1Foot 2Foot podiatrists will either take a mold of your feet with plaster or use a computerized digital scanner to obtain “impressions” (identical pictures) of your feet. We then send the molds/scan to an orthotic laboratory for fabrication. Orthotics are more than arch support and are used for a variety of reasons. The orthotic devices control your foot and help realign the structures of your foot. Orthotics have influence on the spine, hip, knee, ankle, and foot. Orthotic devices are useful in treating a myriad of disorders that cause pain or dysfunction of the lower extremities.
