Custom-Molded Orthotics in Wappingers Falls, NY
Say ‘Yes’ to Pain Relief Customized for Your Foot Condition
Our podiatrist and team at Hollowbrook Foot Specialists, P.C. have the expertise to correctly diagnose your foot problem and then create custom-molded orthotics in Wappingers Falls, NY. Foot disorders are commonly caused by a deformity in the structure of your foot, but they can also be caused by wearing shoes that are too small or narrow. In choosing the best type of orthotic for you, our specialist will consider many possible factors contributing to your foot condition.
Patients with flat feet, plantar fasciitis, high arches, shin splints, tendinitis, and other painful conditions can find relief with custom orthotics. If you suffer from any of these conditions, we are here to help you eliminate your foot pain—and find relief.
Different Feet Have Different Needs
No two people have the same feet, so no two people should wear the same orthotics. Depending on your personal condition and unique needs, our board-certified podiatrist can custom-mold your orthotics for you so that you can walk, run, and stand without being in pain. Our custom-molded orthotics can:
- Increase strength and performance if you’re an athlete
- Prevent injury if you walk or stand excessively
- Prevent diabetic foot issues such as ulcers
Types of Custom-Molded Orthotics
Accommodating Orthotics – Among the most popular type, these orthotics accommodate a specific area of your foot to relieve pressure by using padding to protect the foot.
Functional Orthotics – Functional orthotics use biomechanical applications to alter the forces acting on the foot and influence the motion of the foot.
Functional-Hybrid Orthotics – If a blend of both accommodating and functional orthotics is necessary, podiatrists turn to functional-hybrid orthotics.
Functional-hybrid orthotics can be prescribed to alleviate pain caused by standing for long periods or playing sports.
After an evaluation by our podiatrist, we’ll determine and prescribe the most effective type of orthotic for your condition. Electronically-scanned images or physical impressions of your foot will then be used to fabricate your custom-made orthotic.
When you receive your orthotics, we’ll provide you with wearing instructions and schedule a follow-up appointment to evaluate your progress. During this time, your doctor can make any necessary changes or adjustments to the orthotics in an effort to increase your level of comfort.
