If you are experiencing any type of foot, ankle, leg or back pain, you may have thought about using shoe inserts in an attempt to resolve the problem. Depending on the cause of the problem, these inserts may provide you with some relief. To the mass majority, however, they are at best ineffective, and at worst, do more harm than good. If you really want to liven your step by getting rid of your pain, consider custom orthotics.
In order to put it into perspective whether custom orthotics are worth the added cost, consider that professional runners often turn to custom orthotics after an injury because they know they will help them recover. If runners trust orthotics with the abuse they put on their feet, it stands to reason that you will benefit, as well.
Keep in mind that no two people are the same and that your particular foot or ankle issue may or may not make you an ideal candidate for custom orthotics. The only way to know for sure is to see a professional. The important thing is to see someone who puts your needs first and will give you the answers you need. Your situation may be best resolved with custom orthotics or with another treatment plan.
