Serving Lakewood Ranch, Anna Maria Island, Palmetto, Parrish, FL and Surrounding Areas
At Cortez Foot & Ankle Specialists, our medical staff specializes in customized pain management orthotics. We understand how frustrating and limiting foot pain can be, which is why our orthotics specialists are prepared to restore your full range of motion, your balance, and your stability with a specially tailored orthotics device fitted to your foot.
How Orthotics Can Alleviate Your Pain
Orthotics are separate from shoe inserts available at the drug store. They are specialty arch supports a doctor prescribes and fits to your foot to address your individual conditions. When worn properly, these supports effectively restore the natural movement of your foot without stressing your joints and muscles.
Orthotics can relieve sports and running injuries, hip pain, heel pain, tendonitis, sprains, and more.
What to Expect When Fitted for Orthotics
When you visit our clinic, we’ll examine your feet and gather information about your symptoms. After that, we’ll discuss potential treatment solutions. If we prescribe orthotics, one of our podiatrists will take an impression of your feet in order to ensure their correct positioning when placed in shoes. Once your orthotics have been made, a doctor will show you how to use and care for them correctly.
Why You Should Continue to Wear Orthotics
Once we've taken a mold of your feet, we will send the mold to a lab along with information about your diagnosis, your foot size, and your preferred orthotics materials. When you receive your orthotics, make sure to wear them every day. Your pain relief will only last as long as you wear them, and in order for your foot condition to be properly corrected, you’ll need to use your orthotics long-term.
