How do custom orthotics keep my heel pain away?

Custom orthotics for Houston heel painTreating the inflammation associated with heel pain is only one part of the puzzle. It is also very important to treat the mechanical causes of heel pain. It is the unstable mechanics that prevents the inflammation from resolving on it's own. A custom orthotic is the best way to stabilize the foot function and address the biomechanical instability.

A custom orthotic is a shoe insert that is made specifically for a patient to allow the foot to work as efficiently as possible. By performing a comprehensive lower extremity biomechanical exam, your Houston podiatrist will be able to identify mechanical instability and will take a neutral mold of your foot. That mold will be modified with a unique prescription based on the examination to have the perfect orthotic made for you.

Identifying the contributing biomechanical factors associated with heel pain will enable the orthotics to prevent a recurrence of plantar fasciitis in the future. Contact Dr. Andrew Schneider at Tanglewood Foot Specialists for a comprehensive evaluation. It is time for your heel pain to stay away once and for all.
