Custom prescription orthotics are divided into two categories:
Usually crafted of a semi-rigid material like plastic or graphite, functional orthotics treat foot pain caused by abnormal motion. They are also often used to treat conditions such as shin splints or tendonitis.
These are softer and provide additional support and cushioning to the feet. They are often used to treat diabetic foot ulcers, painful calluses on the bottom of the foot, and other uncomfortable foot conditions.
How to Ensure You're Getting Orthotics That Will Benefit Your Feet
Don't be fooled into purchasing overpriced non-custom orthotics from a retail store like Good Feet. These are pulled off the shelf and are sold by sizing, just like shoes. In contrast, the orthotics at Rocky Mountain Foot & Ankle are prescribed by a licensed and certified foot doctor using the latest in advanced technology. Your podiatrist will customize a pair of orthotics specifically made to fit your feet by scanning and measuring your feet. These will not fit anyone else's feet.
Here's a quick comparison of Rocky Mountain Foot & Ankle custom orthotics vs. retailers:
- Depending on the patient's needs, our orthotics can cost as little as half the retail cost.
- Some insurance companies will pay for our prescription custom orthotics, but not theirs.
- Medicaid may pay for our prescription custom orthotics, but not theirs.
- Our orthotics take about two weeks to make because they are made only for your feet.
