Orthotics

What is an Orthotic?

“Orthotic” simply means a device worn inside a shoe. You might see them on commercials or even in your local drugstore.  This section of Dr. Baldinger’s website is meant to help our patients understand the various types of orthotics and make smart choices about what is right for them.

Orthotics are devices that fit into your shoes to properly align the foot and redistribute pressure to improve foot function and relieve pain. Most foot pain is caused by faulty foot structure and misalignment of the bones and muscles.

If you are a candidate for custom foot orthotics,  you can go many places to have them made. When you choose Dr. Baldinger to make your orthotics you are likely to achieve more pain relief, greater comfort and overall better outcomes than with other practitioners.

A podiatrists’ unique credentials make them some of the nation’s most skilled at custom-designing these devices to precisely control function and resolve your problem.

 

Custom Orthotics:  The real deal.

If you are a candidate for custom foot orthotics,  you can go many places to have them made. When you choose Dr. Baldinger to make your orthotics you are likely to achieve more pain relief, greater comfort and overall better outcomes than with other practitioners.

Orthotics are devices that fit into your shoes to properly align the foot and redistribute pressure to improve foot function and relieve pain. Most foot pain is caused by faulty foot structure and misalignment of the bones and muscles.Your exam begins with gait analysis and a biomechanical evaluation to give you the best orthotic.  Guaranteed!

Dr. Baldinger’s custom orthotics are made from a plaster cast of your foot.  Medical studies have shown that this is the most accurate procedure for creating an effective custom orthotic.  A custom orthotic is a prescription written by a physician for your feet.

Dr. Baldinger can make custom orthotics to fit the shoes you love to wear.  Including ‘ballet’ type flats.Orthotics inserted in a shoe

Buyer Beware! Pressure mats and foam images do not work particularly well.  Often the pre-made orthotics sold in our office are more effective and are also very affordable.

Note that orthotics treat a symptom of foot alignment.  They don’t actually correct the underlying problem (though they can bring relief).  Dr. Baldinger offers newer and advanced treatments that address the underlying foot problems.  Talk to us!
