Can custom foot orthotics cause pain?

Depends on how they’re made and what they’re designed to do.

Here in our office we make custom foot orthotics to optimize foot function based on seated 3-D foot impression. We also make them flexible specific to a person’s body weight. This allows the force to be equally distributed across the entire surface of each foot. This should not cause pain, but sometimes change can be uncomfortable as the feet work though the correction phase of adaptation. Correction takes time and depending on how dys-functional a person’s foot is and the length of time it’s been that way will determine how long this lasts for that person.

Everybody is different. One might expect a 60-year-old with a history of bunions or plantar fasciitis to adapt much differently than a high school athlete.
