Orthotics are shoe inserts that are custom made to fit each patient’s specific needs and to treat painful conditions such as flat feet, heel spurs, plantar fasciitis and neuromas. Orthotics are intended to correct an abnormal or irregular walking pattern, by slightly altering the angles at which the foot strikes a walking or running surface. Prescription Newark orthotics are crafted for you and no one else. They match the contours of your feet precisely and are designed for the way you move. Prescription orthotics are divided into two categories, functional and accommodative orthotics. Functional orthotics are designed to control abnormal motion. They may be used to treat foot pain caused by abnormal motion; they can also be used to treat injuries such as shin splints or tendinitis. Functional orthotics are usually crafted of a semi-rigid material such as plastic or graphite. Accommodative orthotics are softer and meant to provide additional cushioning and support. They can be used to treat diabetic foot ulcers, painful calluses on the bottom of the foot, and other uncomfortable conditions.
Newark orthotics are designed to treat foot problems such as plantar fasciitis, bursitis, tendonitis, diabetic foot ulcers, and foot, ankle, and heel pain. Clinical research studies have shown that prescribed foot orthotics decrease foot pain and improve function.
