Orthotics in Brooklyn NY are actually shoe inserts that are custom-made just for you. They will fit your own feet precisely, and should have your feet feeling much better as you go through your busy day. Orthotics can be used to treat many different types of foot conditions which can include flat feet, plantar fasciitis, heel spurs, and neuromas. The way orthotics work is that they change the way pressure is placed on your foot as you walk, so that abnormal or irregular walking patterns are corrected. As you walk, or run, there will be a change in the way your foot absorbs pressure, and this small change can help solve your foot problem. When orthotics slightly alter the angle at which your foot strikes the ground, they can have a tremendous impact on the way your foot responds to this pressure, and will ultimately have a great impact on how your foot feels. Prescription orthotics are very different from the shoe inserts that you might buy at a grocery or drug store. Prescription orthotics are made specifically to fit your individual feet, and to help solve your own specific foot problem. They are also much stronger and last much longer than shoe inserts. In fact, orthotics will last for many years, so the investment is well worth the return in terms of having healthier and more comfortable feet.
