Find out how these custom-made shoe inserts could improve the way your feet function and feel.

From improving morning workouts to eliminating the foot pain of working a job with excessive standing requirements, there are many shoe-orthoticreasons why someone may benefit from orthotics, i.e. the custom-made shoes inserts from our Marietta, GA, podiatrists, Dr. Trevor Beach and Dr. Cristina Verlezza. Have questions about orthotics? We have answers!


Who can benefit from orthotics?

Orthotics can be a great option for patients of all ages. If you find that your condition or foot problem is making day-to-day activities painful or difficult, then you may want to talk with our podiatrists about whether orthotics could benefit you. If you’ve been trying to avoid surgery but are looking for corrective treatments to help with bunion and hammertoe pain, a simple orthotic may be all you need.

Children who are dealing with foot, ankle, and knee problems may also benefit from orthotics, as they can ease symptoms of:

  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Achilles tendonitis
  • Arthritis
  • Shin splints
  • Knee pain
  • Bunions
  • Hammertoes
  • Flat feet (fallen arches)
  • Diabetic foot ulcers
  • Metatarsalgia


What makes custom orthotics different from commercial shoe inserts?

While you could find shoe inserts down at your local drugstore, these products will not be able to bring you the positive results that orthotics can. Commercial shoe inserts aren’t tailor-made to the shape of your feet and they aren’t designed to treat the specific problems you are dealing with. Conversely, custom orthotics from our Marietta office are created to your exact physical specifications and made to address your individual needs.


How long should I wear my orthotics?

Most people who get custom orthotics are dealing with chronic or recurring foot problems that need constant treatment and support. In this case, orthotics will be worn throughout the day whenever a person is standing or moving. With the proper care, orthotics can last years. Of course, it will also take a couple of weeks to get used to your new inserts.
