Solutions for Foot Pain & Everyday Use

Do I Need Custom Orthotics?
  • Unfortunately, many children, youth and adults are genetically endowed with maladaptive foot structures, such as flat feet or high arches, that often result in painful conditions, such as plantar fasciitis, metatarsalgia, osteoarthritis, etc. At any point in life, these types of feet and the associated pain can become problematic and affect one's work, play and quality of life. Fortunately, custom orthotics are both the proven and prescribed treatment that provides proper arch support to alleviate certain types of foot, ankle, knee and back pain.

  • Both adequate footwear & proper arch support are pivotal to walking through life pain-free. And while supportive shoes are indeed an essential element for your feet, they come stock with insoles that frequently fall short of the adequate support needed for healthy biomechanics.

  • This also applies to off-the-shelf insoles like "Dr. Scholl's", which claim to be "custom" or "custom fit" but are not, as they are not custom-made to fit your unique biomechanical needs. Moreover, some patients have reported that such devices prolonged or even worsened their foot pain over time. Needless to say, this is counterproductive to caring for your feet & legs!

  • For these reasons and many more, our patients, including children, athletes and those whose jobs or lifestyles involve standing for prolonged periods of time, often need to look for additional & actual lab-designed support like the custom orthotics provided by our Certified Pedorthists at Valley Proactive Orthotics®. Please see our wide range of pedorthic services and list of treatable conditions below.
