What & Why Custom Orthotics?
Prescription, custom orthotics are custom to you, like glasses that fit in your shoes, and are recommended because they re-align the poor mechanics of the foot which is often the cause of pain on the bottom of the heel.
They also outperform simple over the counter shoe inserts. Studies prove prescription orthotics are better in the long run, and help you stay more active.
When you should
If you've had heel pain for more than 2 months, it has started impacting your daily life, and you've tried the conservative options then this is a sign you should seek a Board Certified Podiatrist who can give you a full examination, including x-rays and ultrasound of your foot.
