Orthotics Q & A

What are orthotics?

Orthotics are custom insoles that fit into the bottom of your shoes. They provide your feet with better support by aligning perfectly with the natural curvature of your feet. Wearing them can help relieve pain from a variety of foot conditions and injuries and can stop the pain and other symptoms from getting worse. 

You can get insoles from any drug store or supermarket, but they aren’t the same as the custom orthotics available at Professional Podiatry Services of New York. The team designs your orthotics after an extensive evaluation of your health, the condition affecting your feet, and your symptoms. They also consider your weight, height, your physical activity levels, and other factors affecting the way you walk. 

What can orthotics treat?

Custom orthotics can be a valuable component in treatment for conditions causing foot pain. In some cases, they can help ease pain in other areas of your body like your back or your legs. The team at Professional Podiatry Services of New York might suggest adding custom orthotics to your treatment plan for:

  • Arthritis
  • Bunions
  • Flat feet
  • Heel spurs
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Hammertoes
  • Diabetic foot pain


Orthotics are especially helpful for treating fallen arches. They simulate an arch to balance pressure across your feet when you stand or walk.

Before designing and making your orthotics, the team at Professional Podiatry Services of New York might recommend trying more supportive shoes. If your pain persists, orthotics can provide your feet with even better support. 

How are my orthotics made?

After evaluating your condition and asking about your symptoms, the team at Professional Podiatry Services of New York can start designing your orthotics. They decide which level of rigidity you need in your orthotics and take 3D scans of the shapes of your feet. Using the scans, they can computer generate orthotics that fit the contours of your feet perfectly.
