End Foot Pain With Custom Made Orthotics 


Heel pain is derived often when the feet are receiving proper protection.  Often, heel pain is either from a heel spur or plantar fasciitis.  Protecting one’s feet is the most thing one can do to avoid foot pain. 

Everyone’s feet has a different shape.  Some have an average foot shape, some have flat feet, and some have high-arches.  Unfortunately, the in-soles in store-bought shoes are all shaped for the generic foot.  This actively harms high-arched and flat feet by providing them little support where needed when the person is walking. 


At the same time, different shoes are made for different foot types and it is very difficult to figure out which is which in the store unless one knows what to look for.  One have a certain foot shape and be wearing shoes for the opposite foot shape, which actively harms a person’s feet leading to a range of foot conditions such as plantar fasciitis, bunions, achilles tendinitis, and heel spurs. 


How you fix this problem is quite simple?  First, come in for an appointment at the American Foot and Ankle Specialists and see one of our podiatrists.  They will determine your foot shape and discuss it with you so you understand what you need to protect your feet and alleviate foot pain.  


Our podiatrists will also create for you a custom made orthotics that provides you the maximum amount of support while walking.  Each orthotic fits your foot shape and walking pattern in order to give you the support you need during every step.  In this way, instead of having in soles that actively harm your feet, they will now be protecting them.  


Our podiatrists will also help you make the correct decision on shoes to wear and what you need to look for.  We will show you what to research in order to find the shoes you need for every activity you wish to include in your life.
