Prescription devices for your shoes make for happy feet

Foot orthoses, or shoe inserts, have helped a multitude of people live happier, healthier lives. These devices - usually prescribed and customized - help your foot and lower leg muscles and joints function properly. In turn, this improves your gait and relieves unpleasant stress in the rest of the body. If you’ve been suffering from foot pain, an appointment with an orthotist may be in order. Or you may find relief from a non-prescribed, pre-made device or insert (although buying the wrong thing can make problems worse).

Populations that may benefit from orthotics cover a broad spectrum of the population, from seniors wrestling with arthritis, to athletes looking to improve the mechanics of their gait or jumps, to children suffering from deformities. These devices are often constructed of some kind of plastic - hard or soft - but may also incorporate metal or even leather.

Orthotists, or orthotic technicians, work in tandem with podiatrists . A podiatrist will take casts of the patient’s feet, which will then be forwarded to the lab where the technician works. S/he will design the prescription orthotics based on the patient’s foot size and shape, following the instructions of the podiatrist.

Rigid devices guide foot movement, forcing it to follow a healthier path. Proprioceptive devices exist to help you “feel” the correct way to use your feet, while semi-rigid devices are well-suited to many athletes, who may need a combination of cushion, support and guidance in a package that still allows for dynamic movement.

As with all medical care, expense can be a factor. Your insurance may or may not cover the services of podiatrists or orthotists. One approach is to start small and build up until you get to the level of car...
