Trust Dynamic Prosthetics & Orthotics with Your Custom Orthotics
When it comes to choosing the right orthotics to address an injury or condition, you have two basic choices: prefabricated orthotics or custom orthotics. Prefab designs tend to be a little less expensive and are good for situations where you need to brace an injury or limit motion. A knee brace, for instance, is a type of orthotic device that you can typically purchase prefab or over-the-counter.
The Importance of Custom Orthotics
In other cases, though, you may require a custom-made orthotics. Especially for the treatment of foot conditions or congenital issues, custom orthotics may be your best bet for achieving effective pain relief, comfort and function. Here are a few reasons why.
- Custom-made orthotics support your foot in the ideal fashion: Prefabricated orthotics can do a lot of things, but what they can’t do is fit your foot perfectly. Feet are complex, which means everyone’s foot is a bit different. Using a custom orthotic to address a foot injury or foot condition can give your foot the support it needs in all the right places, encouraging faster healing, more effective pain relief, improved function and more.
- They can limit or eliminate pressure on your foot: Foot pain or other problems are often caused by unwanted pressure that footwear is placing on different parts of the feet. Especially for diabetes patients, this pressure can lead to foot ulcers, which can in turn heighten amputation risk. By reducing pressure, a custom orthotic device can improve comfort and help prevent future foot health concerns.
- They can encourage you to be more active: By offering pain relief and helping improve the function of your foot, ankle and leg, the right custom orthotic design can encourage you to be more active—always a good thing for your health.
