The Difference Between Prefabricated and Custom Orthotics
You might have seen orthotics you can pick up over the counter in pharmacies and stores. These have a more “one-size-fits-all” approach to addressing problems and, in doing so, tend to be cheaper than a custom-made orthotic.
We carry prefabricated orthotics ourselves, and will recommend them in certain cases. As a general rule, however, custom orthotics will more often be the preferred choice for the way they can address problems in a much more fine-tuned way. Custom orthotics are also much more durable and longer-lasting than prefabs.
And even in cases when prefabs are sufficient, knowing the right kind to have can make a world of difference. You can rely on our know-how for the best selection.
Orthotics are just one of a number of treatments we may recommend for conditions such as heel pain, metatarsalgia, and gait problems. They are also a crucial part of many diabetic foot care plans.
