Why Invest in Custom Orthotics?
When patients visit Abramov’s Comprehensive Foot Care with chronic or persistent foot pain, Dr. Boris Abramov and Dr. Tatyana Abramova begin with a thorough and accurate examination to determine the specific source of the discomfort and arrive at an accurate diagnosis. They then work with the patient to determine an effective and individualized plan for treatment and ongoing care.
Depending on the reason for your foot pain, the doctor may prescribe custom orthotics. These are custom insoles, designed and produced by our office just for you. They are worn inside your shoes to provide cushioning and/or support. Depending on your insurance, orthotics can require an out-of-pocket investment. With over-the-counter insoles available at every pharmacy and big box store, you might wonder if custom orthotics are worth the investment. In a word: yes!
Custom orthotics are often used to resolve the discomfort associated with conditions including but not limited to:
ulcers and other complications of diabetes
Those pads that you can pick up with a bottle of aspirin and a gallon of milk will take a one-size-fits-all approach to resolving your issue. When your board-certified podiatrist prescribes and provides custom orthotic inserts for you, she or he will not only examine your feet but will also complete a thorough analysis of your posture and gait. This may involve a cast or digital scan of your feet. Your new orthotics cost more than drug store insoles, but they will be made to specifically target your issue and provide cushioning and support right where you need it. They are as unique as you are!
If you are living with foot pain, or if you have any other concerns about your foot health, it’s time to see a podiatrist. With years of specialized training and experience, your podiatrist is the best-qualified medical professional to care for this part of your body.
