Custom Orthotics in Midtown

Considered the foundation of the body, our feet carry us throughout the day. If they are in pain or are not functioning as they should, orthotics can help. Considered prescription medical devices, orthotics are ideal for anyone with an issue or discomfort relating to walking or imbalances in the body that are known to cause related pain. The great benefit of orthotics is that they can be worn on a daily basis and be utilized during most activities to take further stress off the body.

How Orthotics Help

Orthotics are an excellent way to help with issues related to walking and alignment. Some of these include but are not limited to knee, foot and lower back pain. The need for orthotics is often related to an issue with the natural functioning of the foot. Orthotics will often help to realign the bones within the foot and ankle and therefore take pressure off other parts of the body such as the back, neck, shoulders and hips. In addition, orthotics will help with distributing your weight properly and take further pressure off of toes, bunions and other parts of the foot.

What Does the Process Involve?

First, Dr. Shire will examine your feet and ask you about the foot concerns you have. He’ll use the information to have custom-created orthotics fabricated for you.
