Why are Ankle Orthoses important?

Orthotics are designed to guide the mechanics of the foot to a precise degree. They support the bones of feet and ankles and help the muscles and tendons to perform more efficiently by putting the foot into a correct alignment.

There are different types of orthotics designed for people of all ages. Orthotics can be made for any number of different activities, shoe gear and foot ailments. Those wearing them may experience relief from previous pain and symptoms, and prevent recurrence of foot, leg and other skeletal pains and conditions.

Almost anyone can benefit from orthotics. Orthotics can alleviate many common foot problems that cause pain and discomfort in otherwise healthy people. Orthotics can help in situations of:

  • Abnormal shoe wear (one side of the sole wears out faster than the other)
  • Flat feet High-arched foot structure
  • Heel pain
  • Bunions
  • Callus formation
  • Chronic heel (plantar fasciitis), shin (shin splints), knee, or lower back pain
