Foot Orthotics – Custom and Pre-molded
So you have aching feet? If you’ve already figured out that store bought orthotics are quite simply, NOT orthotics, then you’re smarter than your neighbor and really ready to remedy your pain!
There are many factors to explore when considering custom orthotics or pre-molded orthotics and perhaps questions about both should be examined.
It comes as no surprise that custom orthotics would probably be the favored choice for foot pain. After all, what could be better than “custom”? These are orthotics made especially for and from your individual feet – orthotics that are distinct, personal and of course, one-of-a-kind. With this vantage comes a stiffer expense. So, if cost isn’t an issue, custom orthotics can be an exceptional corrective.
For a cost effective solution pre-molded orthotics can also be a successful resolution for foot pain. Here at Ortho-Dynamics, we have a comprehensive line of pre-molded (non-prescription) orthotics that bridges-the-gap between expensive custom (prescription) orthotics and flimsy (non-therapeutic) store bought insoles. Our pre-molded devices are true (bio-mechanical) orthotics, providing therapeutic support, control and stability as well as shock absorption, comfort and protection.
Our pre-molded orthotics are manufactured at the same facility and from the same materials used to fabricate our custom (prescription) devices. They utilize hi-tech polymer or graphite composite shells for arch support, biomechanical control and stability and are covered with cellular cushioning material and felt top covers, which provide excellent shock absorption, comfort and protection.
The use of pre-molded orthotics are influenced by but not limited to the following:
Where precisely is and to what extent is the foot pain?
How long have you had the pain?
How irregular or deformed is the structure of the foot?
How active are you?
Do you have any shoe limitations?
Age and weight.
(Pre-molded orthotics can be used as a primary orthotic for acute problems in young patients.)
