What are custom-made orthotics?

Custom orthotics are shoe insoles that are specially made for your feet.  The shells are made from a 3-dimensional cast of your feet. Each order comes with a pair of custom orthotics (one for each foot). The top coat adds cushioning and covers various additions and modifications that are needed for your specific feet. Dr. Horowitz decides on how to design the orthotics after she conducts a  comprehensive foot examination, which leads to a diagnosis. 

How do Custom Orthotics Work? 

Our feet take quite a beating each day. We depend on our feet to take us everywhere and they are the foundation of most of our skeletal integrity. Most of us take our feet for granted every day. 

Unfortunately, many people walk (and hobble) around in pain or discomfort unnecessarily. They don’t realize that there is so much that can be done to help them. The impact of having uncomfortable footwear and improper arch support is great. 

The ability to walk in a pain-free manner is invaluable. 

Some people are born either with certain foot structures that make walking on hard surfaces such as cement and other hard, man-made surfaces, much more uncomfortable. Conditions such as Hallux Valgus, Bunions, Over-Pronation due to Flattened arches or Over-Supination, related to High arches, are examples where biomechanical strain to the feet and joints can lead to pain. 

Foot and associated body pain is often acquired as well. This is common in those whose jobs involve standing for prolonged periods of time, injuries, Osteoarthritis and loss of fat pad under the heel as we age. 

Without a doubt, a high-quality supportive shoe is indeed the most essential element for your feet. In some countries, people walk on sand or earth. These are much softer surfaces and more “forgiving” surfaces to the feet and body, than are concrete and other man-made materials. 

Store-bought shoes come with insoles that are not custom-made for your feet.  If you look at the quality of shoes that many women wear, most fall short of adequate support for healthy biomechanics. As a result, people often need to look for additional support. 

Once Dr. Horowitz diagnoses your condition and agrees to work with you, she may recommend treatment. She provides natural, drug-free hands-on treatments, using the most up-to-date technologies.

When required, she prescribes and dispenses Custom Orthotics that are comfortable to wear and that can be transferred between different shoes. Dr. Horowitz will let you know if you do not require custom orthotics as well.  In addition, Dr. Horowitz is a custom fitter for medical-grade compression socks and stockings, helping you to choose the correct size and products for your unique needs and preferences.
