The Benefits of Custom Orthotics Made for You by a Physical Therapist

Did you know that orthotics can help with providing support for your feet? Orthotics are great for anyone who needs a more supportive insole in their shoe, especially for those with conditions such as plantar fasciitis or tendonitis; or for athletes who tend to put more stress and strain on their feet. They will help with the healing process of existing conditions as well as help prevent injury.

A nice benefit of having custom orthotics made for you from a specialist, is that for regular daily use they will typically last for 3-5 years. For athletes who may put more stress on them, they may last up to 2-3 years. In comparison, over the counter insoles will need to be changed approximately every 6 months.

Here at Spectrum Orthopaedics, we have a specially trained Physical Therapist in our Portland location who can make you custom orthotics. She can even do a low profile orthotic to fit in street shoes, sneakers, hiking shoes and work boots; or a softer orthotic for those who don’t tolerate a stiffer insole well.

To make an appointment for orthotics, call 207.828.2121.
