Orthotics Q & A

Why do I need orthotics?

As symmetrically in-line as your body may feel, both sides are different. It’s normal to have one foot that’s half a size bigger than the other or one leg that’s just a smidge longer. While issues like these aren’t medical concerns, they can put a little added strain on your entire skeleton and push bones and connective tissues out of alignment.

The benefit of orthotics is that they give you support right where you need it. And since each foot is different, both of your orthotics should be different. This is why it’s so important to have orthotics custom-designed for each of your feet to help with arthritis, plantar fasciitis, heel pain, and more.

Custom Orthotics

How are orthotics made?

When you schedule an orthotics appointment at podiatry practice, Dr. Petkov sits down with you and discusses your foot and ankle concerns to ensure your custom orthotics are going to give you the support you need. He uses a cutting-edge computer system to digitally scan your feet and take precise measurements.

The system designs your orthotics using strong, rigid materials, such as molded polypropylene. Once your orthotics are made, you can easily slip them into the shoes you wear on a daily basis and swap them to different pairs of shoes as needed.

How long does it take to get custom orthotics?

Years ago, it would take up to three weeks to get custom orthotics made since your podiatrist had to send a plaster mold of your feet off to a lab. But because podiatrists Clifton, New Jersey uses the latest technology to design and create your custom orthotics right in the office, you can get them the same day.

Many orthotic wearers come in for their appointment in the morning, go run errands or go to work, then swing by and pick up their new set of prescription orthotics on their way home. Not only can you get your orthotics the same day, best-rated podiatrist Dr. Petkov evaluates you to ensure they fit you perfectly and makes any essential adjustments you may need.

The team at Premier Podiatry offers flexible scheduling for same-day custom orthotic appointments. Request an appointment online, or call the clinic.
