The Purpose and Benefits of Custom-Made Orthotics
Dr. Patel and Dr. Hudzinski at New Horizons Foot and Ankle Associates of Louisville, KY, are Kentucky's leading foot, medicine, and surgical experts in custom-made orthotics. Our practice spans various foot and ankle conditions and chronic foot and ankle pain. We see orthotics helping our patients with different foot and ankle problems. Ask yourself if you may need orthotics.
It is normal to sometimes feel a twitch of discomfort in your feet or ankles, which usually signifies being on your feet too much without resting them. Athletes frequently complain of foot and ankle pain because they put their feet and ankles through grueling workouts. You must pay attention to how your feet and ankles respond to everyday use.
Sometimes, over-the-counter orthotics work, but they are not likely to be as custom-made as you would like. Our patients find that these generic orthotics may help initially, but they need to support the underlying problems and fail.
When you invest hard-earned money in generic orthotics, you do not get the treatment you need, like discovering the problem through doctor-ordered X-rays or MRIs. These tests rule out bone and tissue injuries and can tell the doctor what treatment plan you need and what orthotics are best. Furthermore, our doctors are highly skilled and trained in advanced biomechanics of the foot, ankle, and leg relationship. This enables a much deeper and personalized evaluation and treatment protocol to resolve underlying issues that are not easily assessed by other providers.
Orthotics are custom-made inserts for your unique foot structure that slip into your shoes. Athletes are especially encouraged to see a foot and ankle doctor for custom-made orthotic inserts. Dr. Patel and Dr. Hudzinski at New Horizons Foot and Ankle Associates in Louisville, KY may recommend Orthotics to,
- Help to relieve pain and discomfort
- Preserve bone and joint integrity

- Answers the need for correcting minor foot, ankle, leg, and back problems/pain

- Supports discomfort from flat feet/high arches
- Relieves heel spurs
Orthotics are also used as a preventative measure to help prevent injury. People of all ages, including all athletes, benefit from orthotics to help you live life to its fullest so that you can continue to enjoy what you love doing.
