Orthotics can play an important role in managing foot problems associated with diabetes, which can include neuropathy, poor circulation, and foot deformities. Custom orthotics provide essential support and cushioning, reducing pressure on sensitive areas of the foot and preventing the formation of ulcers. They help distribute weight evenly, alleviating hotspots that can lead to skin breakdown and infection. Additionally, orthotics can correct biomechanical abnormalities and promote proper foot alignment, reducing the risk of foot deformities and improving overall stability. For diabetic individuals, orthotics are often designed with materials that offer extra padding and shock absorption to minimize friction and protect vulnerable areas. If you are a diabetic and experiencing foot problems, it is strongly suggested that you make an appointment with a podiatrist for an evaluation and a discussion of custom-made foot orthotics as part of your treatment. Regular monitoring and adjustments by a podiatrist are needed so that orthotics remain effective and accommodate any changes in foot structure or condition.

What are Custom Orthotics?

Custom orthotics refer to custom inserts designed for placement in different shoe types, including athletic and formal footwear, with the purpose of alleviating a spectrum of foot-related problems such as flat feet, heel pain, and overall foot discomfort. These inserts are instrumental in providing relief and comfort for a diverse range of foot conditions, including heel pain, and can also act as a proactive approach to injury prevention. 

Medical Grade Shoe Inserts: 

A diverse array of shoe inserts is available for addressing foot pain, heel discomfort, and minor issues. For instance, you can place arch supports in your shoes to rectify overarched or flat feet, and gel and cushioned insoles are frequently chosen for the comfort and relief they provide from foot and heel pain by reducing pressure.
