Delivering Custom Foot Orthotics for Residents of Floral Park and Astoria
What Are Orthotics?
Functional orthotics are designed to prevent certain ranges of motion and to support the foot to correct issues with gait or stance. These devices use hard plastic or other semi-rigid materials to provide adequate support and correction.
Accommodative orthotics are softer than their functional counterparts. These devices offer real relief for pain and discomfort by creating a soft cushion between feet and footwear.
Over-the-counter vs. Custom Orthotics
Using Your Custom Foot Orthotics
You should wear your orthotics devices every day to achieve the best results. Custom orthotics are considered to be prescription medical devices. This means that they are therapeutically necessary to help you walk and even run without pain. Your health insurance will typically cover some of the cost of these devices, especially if they are intended to relieve pain or to improve mobility. The experts at Ideal Foot & Ankle Group will work with you to make sure your care is as affordable and effective as possible.
