Prescription Orthotics
from a Board-Certified Podiatrist

New Tread Podiatry PLLC

in Chattanooga, TN.
Dr Andrew Alward DPM


Our feet are unique.

So why trust a "one-size-fits-all" approach when you're in pain?


Short answer? You cant.

Foot pain is the sign of a medical problem.

Often getting a medical diagnosis is expensive, even with insurance.

Our diagnoses by a board-certified podiatrist are completely free.

4 Reasons to Consider 
Prescription Orthotics:

  • Non-Invasive

  • Avoid pain medications, injections, and / or surgery.

  • They work for many common foot problems.

  • Save time & money getting what's right for your foot the first time.


What is a "Prescription Orthotic?"

An "orthotic" refers to a shoe orthosis. An "orthosis" is defined by Merriam-Webster as "an external medical device for supporting, immobilizing, or treating muscles, joints, or skeletal parts which are weak, ineffective, deformed, or injured."


What foot problems can be treated with prescription orthotics?

Custom orthotics have been studied, and proven to be effective for:

  • Achilles Tendinitis (back of heel pain)

  • Calcaneal Apophysitis - aka Sever's Disease (Common Pediatric Heel Pain)

  • Big Toe Arthritis (Hallux Limitus/ Rigidus)

  • Pediatric In toeing ("pigeon toed")

  • Peroneal Tendinitis (Lateral Ankle Instability)

  • Metatarsalgia (Ball of foot pain)

  • Neuroma (Nerve pain ball of foot)

  • Flatfeet

  • Painful High Arches

  • Plantar Fasciitis (heel pain)

  • Posterior Tibial Tendon Dysfunction (Adult flatfoot)

  • Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome

  • Shin Splints

  • and even Knee Pain!

Stop wasting money, and time on "over-the-counter" inserts.

Over-the-counter inserts often fail to address the specific reason for your foot pain. They fail to completely control the poor mechanics of your foot which causes the foot pain, and this is why your pain should be diagnosed by a podiatrist because everyone, and every foot is different.

Here is a great testimonial from one of my patients who had orthotics, and laser therapy to treat heel pain.
