A Personalized Solution for Foot Pain

Does it hurt whenever you walk? Your foot or ankle might have been injured in some way, and that can make getting from place to place daily a grueling task. Your first thought might be to get extra support for your foot. This is likely the right idea, but instead of turning to store-bought solutions, you should set up an appointment with Dr. Rozenberg at the Spine and Disc Center so that she can prescribe custom orthotics that are perfectly suited for your foot’s unique imbalances.

What are Custom Orthotics?

An orthotic device is a foot pad or heel insert worn inside the shoe to provide comfort and support the foot’s movement. Orthotics can be bought over the counter at the pharmacy or certain retail stores, but such products are typically made out of cheap material that will only provide a few days of relief. Custom orthotics are prescribed medical devices made specifically for your unique feet; they last much longer, and they’re designed to address your specific problem.

How are Custom Orthotics Made?

Here at Spinatomy, Dr. Rozenberg uses the Foot Levelers Kiosk to help diagnose foot problems and begin designing custom orthotics. The Kiosk is a special scanner; you simply stand on it while it captures the shape and alignment of your foot and ankle. It can detect imbalances in the foot and show you how they affect your ability to stand and walk comfortably. Custom orthotics can then be developed based on the information gathered by the scanner.

Benefits of Custom Orthotics

Custom orthotics can be made for specific medical conditions, and unlike prefabricated orthotics at the store, they can be made to accommodate the unique specifications of your own foot. Wearing a custom orthotic doesn’t just relieve current pain; it can also help prevent injury in the future. And in the case of high arches and other structural problems, custom orthotics can make the corrections necessary to restore the overall balance of the foot so that the problem doesn’t get any worse.

What Conditions Can Custom Orthotics Treat?

We might prescribe custom orthotics for a variety of reasons. Common medical conditions where you might benefit from additional support include:

  • Back Pain: Sometimes, a problem with the foot can cause a misalignment with the ankle that ultimately changes the way you walk, causing your spine to hurt.
  • Flat Feet: Also known as fallen arches, having flat feet means there’s no gap beneath the inner part of the foot when you stand up, affecting your body’s ability to properly distribute its weight across the feet and legs.
  • Hammer Toes: One or more of your toes may be bent at the joint, becoming hammer-shaped and leading to foot pain.
  • High Arches: If the arch of your foot is unusually high, it can lead to numerous issues, including recurring foot pain.
  • Bunions: A bunion is a bony bump on the joint of the big toe, which limits its movement and can cause ongoing discomfort.

Don’t Suffer in Silence

If you suffer from chronic pain in your feet and ankles, you may have already tried various pain medications and treatments. Perhaps you’ve resolved to simply “tough it out.” But the longer you delay treatment, the worse your pain will become until you can’t even perform simple activities anymore.

You don’t have to suffer in silence — contact Dr. Rozenberg today for a diagnosis and personalized treatment plan to find your way back to a pain-free life.
