Foot Orthotics (also called orthoses or insoles) are medical devices that are used to help support, align, correct or protect the feet. Foot orthotics are used for treatment of many different maladies including rheumatoid arthritis, plantar fasciitis, diabetic neuropathy, patellofemoral syndrome and metatarsalgia.
Custom Made foot orthotics are made according to the specific medical requirements of the individual. Custom made foot orthotics can be made soft to accommodate for deformities and to protect and cushion or more rigid for people who need more control for excessive or abnormal movement of the feet. They are made from plaster casts (impressions) of the feet. Various materials are used to create the foot orthotics with corrections built in to reduce destructive forces, to protect the foot or control the foot position.
