Fall is here. With a new season, we encourage you to check in on your footwear. Are you receiving the support that you need? If you’re still walking in pain, you may want to consider speaking with our office about custom orthotics, which are also known as prescription orthotics. The doctors at Westfield Foot and Ankle, LLC want to help patients learn more about the value of custom orthotics and how they can help reduce foot, ankle or heel pain.

If you’re looking for a solution over the counter, we encourage you to first visit a podiatrist.

What’s the big difference between custom orthotics and over-the-counter orthotics?

A custom orthotic is created just for you. This means that a podiatrist takes individual measurements, including an analysis of how you move, to create a device that specifically addresses your individual foot needs. Orthotics help to reduce pressure, provide comfort, and reduce pain.

How are orthotics made at your practice?

Here at Westfield Foot and Ankle, LLC, we use 3D scanning technology to create orthotics.

This includes the complete evaluation of your feet, ankles, and legs.

What are some conditions that can be treated with orthotics?

While over-the-counter orthotics may be a quick stop to your local store, it’s worth the time — and money to invest in custom orthotics. Visit a podiatrist. They can take an in-depth look at what’s causing your foot, heel or ankle pain. The measurements that they gather are used to create orthotics that will help you take steps with less pain or no pain at all.

If you need help weighing the options, we’re here to answer your questions about prescription orthotics. Remember, we’re focused on helping you take steps with ease. Our office serves patients who live in Westfield, IN, or the Hamilton County area. Dr. David Sullivan and his team look forward to meeting with you.
