Relieve Foot Pain With Prescription Orthotics


Get A Pair Of Custom Made Orthotics


Foot pain is extremely irritating but as a foot doctor, I want to help you both why you are having understand foot pain and how to find relief.  Now, a little foot pain here or there is normal.  For instance, if you begin a new exercise routine or you are on your feet for long periods, you may experience some foot pain.  


It is like working out your feet.  A little inflammation will occur as a result and your feet can even be sore the next day.  For this, icing your feet is extremely helpful to decrease inflammation.  


At the same time, if you are having foot pain and you can’t seem to get rid of it, then it is time to see a podiatrist at the American Foot and Ankle Specialists to find out why.  We will provide you treatment, care, and advice to make your feet as comfortable as possible throughout the day. 


There are many reasons why your feet could be paining you and if you continue to let it hurt without seeking podiatry treatment, this pain can develop into a more serious condition such as plantar fasciitis, heel pain, or bunions.  We can treat these problems as well but it important to solve these issues as quickly as possible before they progress further.  


How To Change Your Footwear


The first step to solving foot pain is using the right footwear.  Like a fingerprint, everyone’s foot shape is slightly different.  Some people have flat feet, others have high-arched feet, and still others have a normal arch that may lean toward one or the other.  If you have flat feet or high-arched feet, you definitely need prescription orthotics. 


Also, you need to understand which shoes to buy in the store.  You may not know this but different shoes are for different foot shapes and without knowing this, you could be wearing a shoe that is made for flat feet when you have high-arched feet.  This improper shoe can than cause sufficient harm to your feet and be the reason why you are experiencing significant foot pain. 

This is why you should come to see us at either our Sun City podiatry or Scottsdale podiatry office.  We can determine your foot type and advise you on the type of shoes you should be wearing to support your feet not harm them.  At the same time, we will create a custom pair of prescription orthotics for you made specifically for your feet and made by one of our podiatrists.


A prescription orthotic is custom molded specifically to your feet to match your foot shape and walking pattern and as such, provide the maximum amount of support for your feet while walking.  It will decrease the inflammation you experience on a daily basis, which may be tremendously instigating the pain that you are feeling.  


If you are experiencing consistent foot pain, it is time to see a podiatrist at the American Foot and Ankle Specialists.  You don’t need to live a life with foot pain and we can help.
