Orthotics are specially-made shoe inserts used to treat many foot and ankle problems and also to help increase athletic performance. Since achieving optimum weight distribution is essential to the proper functioning of your feet and ankles, you should have a computerized gait analysis performed by your foot doctor to see if your feet and ankles are functioning properly. Correcting problems with pronation can also have great beneficial effects on your knees, hips, and back as well.

For patients who have diabetes, orthotic inserts can be combined with special shoes to improve balance and help prevent falls. They can also isolate foot ulcers to improve healing.

Some of the conditions treated with orthotic inserts include the following:

Your foot doctor can use a computerized gait analysis to see how you walk in real time and then formulate the precise orthotic inserts that will correct alignment problems. Additionally, orthotic pads and cushions can be used for heel lifting and isolation.

In patients who have diabetes, muscle weakening often affects the extremities. Orthotic braces can be used with diabetic footwear to improve balance and stability.
