Functional orthotics are extremely long lasting . Materials such as polypropylene, graphite, and EVA are sturdy and allow for years of comfort. However, although orthotics have been an integral part of the treatment of conditions from heel spurs to neuromas, they are not a panacea for every foot problem. Some problems require other treatment including medication, cortisone injections, physical therapy and even surgery. Every patient is an individual and every patient responds to treatment in a unique and individual way. Orthotics are not for everybody and unfortunately, we cannot guarantee that they will eliminate the pain you are experiencing.
In our efforts to give the devices every chance to work properly, the lab we use will adjust the devices at no charge from 6 months after the device is made.
Overall, orthotics are an excellent part of our practice armamentarium. We hope that they help your foot problem. Please do not hesitate to ask any questions that you may have regarding this mode of treatment .
