Suffering from foot or ankle pain? Your ARC Podiatrist may suggest orthotics. Orthotics are medical aids used to improve foot and ankle issues. Certain orthotics, such as foot inserts and customized insoles, may be purchased over the counter, though first consult your ARC foot doctor/podiatrist to learn more about foot deformities and heel, arch, ankle, foot, and ankle pain. A one size fits all solution is not always ideal and may even cause more harm than good, especially if you have diabetes.

Talk to your ARC podiatrist before deciding which orthotics option is best for your needs.

Orthotics prescribed by a foot specialist are best because they are completely customized based on your individual needs. ARC also offers over-the-counter orthotic options.

Orthotics should not be worn for more than a few hours a day until you feel fully comfortable wearing them. The majority of orthotics have a lifespan between five to 10 years. A new set of prescribed orthotics will be necessary if you outgrow them by either 1½ shoe sizes, undergo foot surgery, have arthritis in your feet, or experience any other developments in your foot health.
