Custom foot orthotics are designed to align the foot and ankle into the most anatomically efficient position. They look similar to insoles, but are biomedical appliances that are custom made to correct your specific foot imbalance. The plastic body of the custom orthotic helps to re-align the foot while you walk. We understand that everyone is different, which is why custom foot orthotics are made just for you.
Surgical Corrections of Foot Disorders
In most cases, invasive methods are not necessary to correct many foot disorders. Though in more extreme conditions, surgery may be required. The need for surgery will depend on the severity of the condition, the amount of pain the patient is experiencing, and the patient’s past response to various treatments.
Diabetic Shoe Program
While many people know that diabetes affects blood sugar, some may not know that one of the complications of long term issues with high blood sugar happens in the feet. Those with diabetes are especially prone to nerve damage in the foot, as well as infections, ulcers, fungal infections, and, at worst - amputation. Diabetic shoes are one way to help ease the discomfort and reduce the likelihood that these conditions will develop or worsen.
A doctor must prescribe diabetic shoes, and an orthotist or therapeutic shoe fitter must fit them individually. At Fine Foot Care Center, we are proud to offer these services to our patients. Sometimes diabetic shoes also entail inserts, arch supports, wedges, and customized heels. The combination of these deep, cushioned, tailored shoes and any additional supporting structures help to prevent discomfort, increase circulation, and help those with diabetes stay mobile and active - two things integral to a healthy lifestyle.
