Custom-Made Foot Orthotics in Oak Creek

As your feet are the foundation of your body, you want them to feel and function great. When you move, your feet support and protect your bones, soft tissues, and spine from stress. To help support your foundation, we recommend custom foot orthotics, which can stabilize your feet and enhance your body’s functions when you stand, walk, run and live your life.

What Are They?

Orthotics are arch support devices that go into your shoes. At Oak Creek Relief & Wellness, we use Foot Levelers, a company that offers a range of options including inserts for dress shoes, tennis shoes, and even flip-flops. The biggest difference is that these inserts are custom-made for you.

They support all three arches in your foot and are not just off-the-shelf inserts. We use a state-of-the-art scanner to get a digital reading of how the weight is distributed at the bottom of your feet, capturing about 1200 different metrics. This scan is then used to create orthotics that are tailored specifically to your feet.

Conditions That Can Be Addressed

Custom orthotics can help with various conditions, including:

  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Ankle pain
  • Knee pain
  • Hip pain
  • Upper back pain
  • Low back pain

A study published in the Archives of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation titled “Shoe Orthotics for the Treatment of Chronic Low Back Pain: A Randomized Control Trial” revealed that wearing orthotics resulted in a 34.5% reduction in low back pain!

What to Expect

tying bright pink shoesDuring your initial assessment, we will include a foot scan to get a comprehensive understanding of your feet. Our chiropractors are members of the Concerned Parents of Young Athletes (CPOYA) network and have been trained by the developer of The Structural Fingerprint® Exam. As part of the exam, we look at a person’s posture, balance and structure, and how the foot scan fits into that.

The scan results can be printed right away, and we will go through them on your next visit, providing you with a report of findings specifically for your feet. Along with the scan results, we will provide you with a packet that outlines the main reasons we recommend orthotics, postural patterns, and how they can help with shock absorption.

Different types of shoes require different orthotics, but don’t worry—our catalog offers a variety of options. We just need to know what type of shoes you plan to wear them with.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why should I get custom-made orthotics?

Custom-made shoe inserts are tailored specifically to your feet, providing optimal support and comfort. While store-bought inserts may seem convenient, they lack the customization necessary to address your unique foot structure and needs.

Does insurance cover these inserts?

Insurance coverage for custom orthotics is rare. However, Health Savings Account (HSA) dollars are applicable, allowing you to use those funds towards your orthotics.

How do I know when to replace them?

Typically, custom orthotics last between three to five years with normal wear and tear. If you notice significant wear or a decrease in their effectiveness, it may be time to consider replacing them.

How do I clean them?

Custom orthotics usually require minimal cleaning. Simply use mild soap and water to keep them fresh and hygienic.
