Foot Orthotics FAQs

At York Foot Orthotics and Bracing, we are proud to provide treatment and preventative care for common foot conditions, often through the use of foot orthotics. We understand the impact that foot pain can have on a person’s life, and our goal is to help alleviate that pain and promote better foot health for each of our clients. Below, you’ll find answers to some of the more common questions we have been asked about foot orthotics over the years, and we encourage you to reach out to us directly if the information you’re looking for is not included here.

What are foot orthotics, and how do they work?

Foot orthotics are devices that have been specifically designed to help provide support, stability, and alignment for the feet and lower limbs. They are typically placed inside the patient’s shoes to help correct biomechanical imbalances, alleviate foot pain, and improve foot function. Foot orthotics work by redistributing weight or pressure, cushioning the feet, controlling abnormal motion, and correcting alignment issues, all of which can cause strain on the muscles, joints, and ligaments.

Who can benefit from foot orthotics?

Anyone who experiences foot and lower limb pain that interrupts their daily life can benefit from foot orthotics. Common conditions that foot orthotics can help address include flat feet, high arches, plantar fasciitis, heel pain, bunions, hammertoes, overpronation, underpronation (supination), arthritis, diabetic foot complications, and sports-related injuries.

How do I know if I need foot orthotics?

If you experience persistent foot pain or discomfort or have difficulty performing daily activities due to foot conditions, it is worthwhile to seek the assistance of a foot specialist who can help diagnose the issue and recommend treatment and preventative care, which may include foot orthotics.

Can I use foot orthotics in conjunction with other treatments?

Typically, yes, though each case is different. We recommend consulting with our foot specialist, who can recommend appropriate treatments, therapy, or modifications that will work together effectively.
