Custom orthotics can reduce pain and keep the foot in an ideal position when walking or performing other types of activities, such as running, pivoting or jumping. By placing a custom-designed orthotic underfoot, a patient has a more correct stride, helping to alleviate a myriad of potential problems that can occur to feet, ankles and legs due to biomechanical deficiencies.
Busy New Yorkers, as well as walkers, runners, dancers and athletes of all kinds, place a tremendous amount of stress on the intricate bones, tendons, ligaments and muscles in the foot and ankle each day. Improper gait can result in heel pain, plantar fasciitis, ankle injuries and shin splints, among other conditions.
The good news is that a custom orthotic, made precisely to fit your foot and to keep it in an ideal and balanced position, can keep your foot moving the way it was meant to move and can help to prevent foot and ankle pain, injuries and other ailments. We offer fully custom orthotics in NYC, designed from an actual cast of your feet so the orthotics can precisely correct the exact abnormalities of your feet. This is much different than a mass-marketed insole or arch support, which cannot completely match the intricacies of how your foot is structured or aligned and offers an entirely different level of support.
If you suffer from pain, are susceptible to injury, or feel that your stride is less than ideal and that this fact results in poor performance or discomfort, then speak to Dr. Sanford Green, D.P.M. to find out more about whether a custom orthotic can provide you with the support, control and pain relief you seek.
