Custom foot orthotics help prevent and relieve many different types of foot problems. They can be helpful for children’s feet and even help professional athletes perform better. These prescription shoe inserts take many hours to make and should not to be confused with the so-called “custom orthotics” that you can get at your local superstore.

These symptoms include pain in the lower back, hip pain, knee pain and ankle pain. If you suffer from any of these conditions, visit our award-winning specialists for custom orthotics. With 3 convenient offices in Waxahachie, Corsicana & Ennis, TX, we are here to help get you back to living without foot pain!
Custom Prescription Orthotics vs Store Bought?
Mass-produced store bought inserts can help provide cushioning and mild arch support. This can help with minor foot discomfort but because they are designed to fit everyone, they do not capture your individual foot problem. No two people have the same feet, therefore, no two people should use the same orthotic.
Custom orthotics take time to make. If you walk out of the store with orthotics in a box, they were not custom made to your foot and only your foot. We create custom orthotics to relieve pain, strengthen the feet, and to prevent injury by allowing the foot to function at peak capacity.
Who Can benefit?
Custom orthotics are also used to correct any abnormalities caused by the way you walk, which is referred to as biomechanics. The podiatrists at Family Foot & Ankle Centers will perform a thorough biomechanical exam on your feet to see if you need custom orthotics. You may be a candidate for custom orthotics if you suffer from lower back pain, leg pain, or pain in your foot. Common foot conditions treated with custom orthotics are flat feet, heel pain such as with plantar fasciitis, and bunions and hammertoes.
What Are The Benefits?
- Custom orthotics fit into your shoes and cannot be seen by others
- Superior shock absorption for your feet, knees and lower back
- The orthotics are made specifically for your foot from a plaster mold of your foot, so fit is exact
- Improved balance and stability
What Conditions Can Orthotics Treat?
Apart from treating foot pain, orthotics can be used to treat a variety of other problems such as:
Osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis can lead to pain and discomfort in the feet and poor positioning of the joints and bones. Orthotics can be used to correct the positioning of such joints.
At times, improper positioning of the feet, for example, inward rolled arches or lack of proper mitigation, can cause swelling and pain in back that only orthotics can correct.
Bursitis is the inflammation and formation of fluid-filled sacs in the toes and heels. This condition can cause extreme pain and soreness in the affected region. Using orthotics with arch and heel support can help to reduce pain and discomfort.
Flat feet cause back, ankle, and foot pain. Orthotics are used to provide support to flat feet and offer proper foot placement.
Bunions over the big toe can sometimes lead to the formation of hammertoes. They can cause unbearable pain in the second toe and cultivate deformities over the ball of the foot. Orthotics can give more support to the feet in this condition and try to prevent the disease from becoming worse.
Painful bumps and sacs that may develop at the base of the big toe can lead to pain and deformities in the bones. To manage this condition, doctors prescribe orthotics with a wide toe box to keep the pressure off of the big toe.
The most basic cause of heel pain is plantar fasciitis. To provide additional support to the foot and the heel, orthotics are recommended.
Very high arches can also create a lot of trouble and pain for a person. It can cause stress over the muscles and develop medical conditions like knee pain, shin splints, and plantar fasciitis. In high arches, orthotics can help a person’s feet from rolling extremely outward or inward.
In this condition, excessive bones can grow at the bottom or back of the heel. Orthotics can be used here to reduce inflammation and to support the foot.
Orthotics can also give additional support and cushioning in the ball of the foot and the heel. Because they are prescription made-to-order, your shoes are kept in mind during manufacturing. Ideally, orthotics, along with medicines and therapy, can help a person with foot problems to avoid going through more intensive treatments like surgery.
At Family Foot & Ankle Centers, we have the expertise to correctly diagnose your foot problem and ensure that your orthotic is right for you.
