How can the right shoes or orthotics help my feet?
There are a wide range of foot conditions that can be prevented or improved by wearing shoes that fit well and provide the right amount of support. Specific conditions that can be improved with appropriate footwear include heel pain, ingrown nails, bunions, corns, tendonitis, arch pain, and many others. Pronation can result when bones of the feet do not align properly while you walk. Your podiatrist can help you correct alignment issues by providing orthotic inserts designed to cushion and support your feet. You will be amazed how much a simple thing like arch support can make a big difference in the way your feet feel, allowing you to enjoy a more energized gait all day long.
If I have flat feet, can orthotics fix them?
Unfortunately, flat feet can only be corrected with surgical intervention. However, orthotic supportive inserts can help improve comfort for many different patients, regardless of the shape of their arches or other parts of their feet. Custom-fit orthotic inserts can improve the way your feet feel in your daily life by supporting anatomically appropriate alignment and offering cushioning that can make it easier for you to be on your feet all day. Regardless of the shape of your feet or issues you are dealing with, an appointment with one of our experienced podiatrists can offer you exceptional improvement of your foot discomfort and leg pain.
Can orthotics help me if I have diabetes?
Patients with diabetes can have a greater chance of developing health problems in the feet. Diabetic neuropathy and peripheral vascular disease are both common diseases that may develop in patients with diabetes. When neuropathy makes it difficult for you to feel your feet, it can lead to unattended sores or other conditions that will worsen as they remain untreated. Poor circulation can lead to ulcers or even gangrene if not seen by an experienced doctor. Diabetic shoes or insoles can help prevent ulcers and even improve circulation. By relieving excess pressure, you can help protect your feet from developing sores or blisters that could lead to infection. If you have diabetes, it is especially important for you to find a podiatrist you can trust and who can offer all of the care and attention you need to keep your feet healthy.
