Custom Orthotics To Treat Foot And Ankle Pain

Many people who suffer from foot and ankle pain may benefit from a custom orthotic. Improper alignment of the foot and ankle, heel pain, and tendinitis are common reasons you may not be able to participate in activities you enjoy. Custom orthotics are designed to place your foot in proper alignment, offload painful areas, and provide structural support. They are uniquely molded to your feet which allows more comfort and control vs Over the Counter type (OTC) inserts.

Quality OTC inserts may be beneficial to help alleviate pain in certain instances, though if these options fail custom orthotics may be a better option.

Examples of conditions that orthotics can help treat include:

  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • Achilles Tendinitis
  • Posterior Tibial Tendinitis
  • Flat Feet
  • Midfoot arthritis

At Salt Lake City Foot and Ankle Clinic Dr. Christiaan Goebel and Dr. Weston Packard will provide a comprehensive exam of your feet and discuss if Custom Orthotics are right for you. Utilizing 3D scanning technology, your feet are placed in proper position and scanned to capture your individual foot alignment. After the orthotics are made you will have an appointment to ensure proper fit, adjustments can also be made as needed. We will continue to work with you until you are back to the activities you enjoy.
