Custom Orthotics

A custom orthotic is a specialized orthopedic device designed to enhance or modify the way the foot interacts with the ground. Unlike generic, off-the-shelf alternatives found in drug or sporting goods stores, true custom orthotics capture the three-dimensional arch shape. Over-the-counter options, such as cushioned heel cups, insoles, arch supports, memory foam inserts, and heel protectors, offer only superficial relief by masking symptoms rather than addressing the root cause.

For comprehensive and effective treatment, it’s crucial to turn to custom-made devices crafted by a podiatrist. These orthotics are meticulously created using a cast of the individual’s foot, replicating any misalignments or structural irregularities. Employing advanced computer technology, technicians in an orthotic lab then design a custom orthotic tailored to balance out deformities and correct misalignments. Dr. Leisten’s dedication to incorporating cutting-edge biomechanical theories into the fabrication of Sole Supports exemplifies a commitment to innovation in the field of podiatry. Sole Supports, a type of custom orthotic, aids in alleviating heel, knee, hip, and back pain by addressing both symptoms and the root causes.
