At Dallas Podiatry Works, our Dallas orthotics specialist can help with custom-made shoe inserts. These orthotics are used as a treatment method to relieve foot or ankle pain and to restore normal foot function. Orthotics offer benefits comparable to what eyeglasses do for your eyes, in that they relieve the pain associated with foot deformities and restore proper function of the foot. Even people experiencing minimal foot discomfort without a significant foot deformity can find relief in custom orthotics.
Foot disorders are commonly caused by a deformity in the structure of your foot, but they can also be caused by wearing shoes that are too small or narrow. In choosing the best type of orthotic for you, our Dallas orthotics specialist will consider many possible factors contributing to your foot condition.
There are multiple types of orthotics available today. Here are some common types that we may consider when our Dallas orthotics specialist evaluates your feet and ankles:
After our Dallas podiatrist evaluates you, we will determine and prescribe the most effective type of orthotic for your condition. Electronically-scanned images or physical impressions of your foot will then be used to fabricate your custom-made orthotic.
Most insurance companies cover the cost of orthotics and, as a service to you, our team at Dallas Podiatry Works will take care of insurance claims and processing for you.
Upon receiving your orthotics, our Dallas orthotics specialist will provide necessary wearing instruction, and schedule a follow-up appointment to evaluate your treatment progress. At that time, your doctor can make any necessary changes or adjustments to the orthotics in an effort to increase your level of comfort.
