What are the benefits of orthotics?

From pain relief to biomechanical corrections, there are many benefits of orthotics for those with foot problems. An orthotic device slipped into your shoe can redistribute weight and reduce pressure in bothersome areas. This helps to alleviate pain and discomfort caused by conditions like plantar fasciitis, for example.


Orthotics also provide additional support for arches and ankles, increasing stability and possibly even preventing falls in older people. Podiatrists can even make custom orthotics that mold to your unique feet and address your specific problems. Although they will eventually provide additional comfort, orthotics shoe inserts do take some getting used to. There will be a period of “breaking-in” time, but once you get used to them, you’ll be amazed at the difference they make.

Learn more about the benefits of orthotics from Dr. Craig H. Thomajan DPM, FACFAS and Dr. Shine John DPM, FACFAS. Call Austin Foot and Ankle Specialists at (512) 328-8900 or visit our Austin, TX, location.
