Foot Conditons
Benefits:
In addition to providing relief for painful foot problems or an injury, those who may benefit from orthotics include people who must walk or stand excessively on the job. For those who are active insports, orthotics will often increase endurance, performance and strength. For overweight individuals, orthotics can help to counteract the extra stress on the feet, as minor problems are often magnified due to the increased weight.
 
Orthotics are particularly effective in relieving foot fatigue and discomfort experienced by older adults, who may have developed arthritis in their feet. Orthotics may also be prescribed for children who have a foot deformity.
 
In athletic individuals, sports activities result in a great deal of movement and pressure on the foot. Slight imbalances in the foot that are not harmful or even detectable under usual circumstances may make one more vulnerable to injury with the extra stress of sports activity. By eliminating the need for one's muscles to compensate for imperceptible imbalances. Orthotics can reduce fatigue and promote efficient muscle function to enhance performance.
 
Most orthotists make a plaster mold of the patient's foot and sent it to a laboratory with a prescription. At the lab, technicians pour plaster into the mold, and when it hardens: it exactly reproduces the bottom of the individual's foot, although it is common for labs to "cast correct" by partially filling in the arch. This decreases the arch height of the orthotic and is done for comfort reasons. Once a reproduction of the individual's foot is made, the technicians then use the orthotist's prescription to custom-make a device to meet the patient's specific needs.
