Eliminate Your Fears and Doubts about Custom Foot Orthotics

top 10 fears and doubts about custom foot orthotics

Here’s a list of the TOP 10 Fears and Doubts we hear about Custom Foot Orthotics

  1. “I’m afraid they won’t help. I’ve tried some of those over the counter custom orthotics and they didn’t help at all.”
  2. “Can they really help? I’m almost 60 years old.”
  3. “I doubt these custom orthotics are the best.”
  4. “I’m afraid custom foot orthotics are not really what I need.”
  5. “I doubt they’ll prevent me from eventually having a bunion surgery.”
  6. “I tried my friend’s orthotics and they were way too hard.”
  7. “This orthotic is too big… or, too small for my foot.”
  8. “I doubt I actually need a custom foot orthotic.”
  9. “I’m afraid they won’t fit into my shoes.”
  10. “I doubt this little piece of plastic in my shoe can really do anything.”

Here’s our response to help eliminate your fears and doubts

  1. Over the counter “orthotics” are not truly custom. They’re pre-made and not specific to the needs of your feet. Of course they didn’t help. They’re cushions, not something designed to optimize how your feet handle gravity.
  2. As long as you’re still alive, your body is rebuilding itself. It’s either building up and getting stronger or breaking down and becoming weaker. If you do not correct the cause of your problem, you get weaker. If you actually need custom foot orthotics, they most certainly can and will help.
  3. Our custom foot orthotics are the best for 3 reasons. Firstly, they’re made from scratch. Secondly, they’re made from a corrected arch-up 3D foot impression referred to as MASS position and finally, they’re precision calibrated to flex specific to your body weight and foot flexibility. There’s no other custom foot orthotic on the market made this good!
  4. That’s the purpose of a consultation, foot inspection, gait analysis and examination. There is no one-size-fits all approach to custom foot orthotics, yet that’s what you get when you visit a local retailer or attempt to purchase something from the internet.
  5. When you correct the cause of your bunion, it can begin to heal. When the cause of the big toe turning towards the outside of the foot is removed, it no longer has a reason to turn. BUT, you need the right orthotic. You can’t walk into WalMart and buy a pre-made Dr. Scholl’s product and expect it to help.
  6. Most likely this was an orthotic made from a sub-talar joint neutral plaster of Paris casting of your foot. This is the old way of doing things and these orthotics are as hard as a rock. Your foot has 33 joints and needs to work as a spring to absorb the stress of your body weight and gravity with every step you take. This type of orthotic prevents that from happening and this is why we’re the best…Precision Calibration. This is how we make our orthotics flex and bend specific to you! Until recently, this technology didn’t even exist.
  7. That’s because we don’t have an inventory. We have generic samples; they’re not made for your foot. This is why we make a 3D impression of your foot. This means the orthotic that we make completely from scratch that’s just for you, will actually cradle each foot like-a-glove.
  8. Unless you’d like to take the “hope-and-pray” or the good ‘ol “wait-and-see” approach to a foot problem that truly requires a custom foot orthotic for correction, your problem will get worse over time. Foot problems like plantar fasciitis, bunions, big toe arthritis, Morton’s neuroma, and hammer toes are “progressive” in nature which means they only get worse unless you address the cause. You can treat symptoms all-day-long but the result will always be short-lived until you address what’s causing the problem.
  9. Then, most likely, that’s just not the right shoe for you. Once we make your custom foot orthotics, you’ll need to take them with you the next time you go shoe shopping. If you cannot fit your orthotic and foot into the shoe, it’s the wrong shoe. If you put the orthotic into the shoe and it’s not a nice and snug fit, it’s the wrong shoe. Also, we can modify a typical athletic shoe type of orthotic to specifically fit a tight constricting dress shoe and even a high heel. That’s the beauty of made-from-scratch. We make everything just for you!
  10. Two words: biomechanical advantage! When the 26 bones of each foot are optimally aligned and the foot is able to optimally transition between pronation and supination, it’s a thing of beauty. This is what you get when you purchase a custom foot orthotic from Arizona Orthotics. Our orthotics are the only on the market to offer that biomechanical advantage turning an ordinary piece of plastic into a work of art! This is why our patient’s love us and why they get better.
