Orthotics Q & A

What are the benefits of orthotics? 

Every person’s feet are different; even each of your own two feet are unique. But the problem is that shoes are designed in a one-size-fits-all format. Your shoes are designed for every single person who has the same size feet as you. Needless to say, proper support is unlikely.

Custom orthotics fit seamlessly into your shoes and are carefully fabricated to cushion and support every inch of your feet. They’re highly beneficial for correcting any of the following issues:

  • Arthritis
  • Bursitis 
  • Heel pain 
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Achilles tendinitis
  • Flat feet or high arches
  • Knee, hip, or lower back pain

Custom orthotics can even help prevent diabetic foot ulcers and can help you heal if you already have an ulcer by offloading pressure from the wound. 

Which type of orthotics do I need?

Clarksville Chiropractic Center tailors your set of custom orthotics to your unique needs after your provider performs a comprehensive foot and ankle exam and evaluates your personal medical history. In general, custom orthotics fit into one of the two categories below:

Functional orthotics

Functional orthotics correct issues causing abnormal motion by supporting your feet with a semirigid foundation, such as graphite or plastic. Generally, these are the orthotics providers recommend if you have an injury or chronic pain, or to prevent injuries if you play sports. 

Accommodative orthotics 

Typically recommended for diabetics, accommodative orthotics are carefully crafted out of durable cushioning materials. These orthotics relieve pressure off certain areas, so wounds, calluses, corns, and other issues can heal. 

How are custom orthotics designed?

Clarksville Chiropractic Center is home to state-of-the-art digital technology to precisely fabricate orthotics for your changing foot needs. During your fitting, you place your bare foot into the scanning brace to capture a neutral foot position.

This process creates a digital mold of your foot, which your provider can visually see on the computer monitor. Your practitioner takes several digital images and measurements of each of your feet.

Once your session is complete, Clarksville Chiropractic Center sends your digital foot molds off to the lab for custom orthotic fabrication. It takes about 2-3 weeks to receive your orthotics. 

Clarksville Chiropractic Center provides custom orthotics designed with digital technology. Book your orthotics appointment through the website or call to schedule by phone today.
