Award-Winning Podiatrists In Merrillville, IN, For Custom Molded Orthotics

Custom Molded Orthotics

merrillville valparaiso podiatrist for custom orthoticsOrthotics are custom-made shoe inserts prescribed by our podiatrist in Merrillville, IN, to restore control of normal foot functions while relieving the associated pain of an existing foot condition. Orthotics are similar to vision-correcting glasses or contact lenses. They restore proper function and relieve the pain associated with improper foot structure. Even people without a significant foot deformity can wear custom orthotics to relieve minor foot discomfort.

Many foot conditions often develop from the lack of control caused by wearing ill-fitting shoes, or from inherent foot structure challenges.

There are many types of orthotics, each made from different materials:

Accommodating Orthotics

Accommodating orthotics are designed to pad and protect the foot. They are typically designed to reduce pressure in a specific area of the foot.

Functional Orthotics

Functional orthotics are designed to influence the motion of the foot using bio-mechanical applications. They alter the forces acting on the foot.

Functional-Hybrid Orthotics

Functional-hybrid orthotics can include characteristics of both accommodating and functional orthotics. These types of inserts may be specific for certain activities, such as sports or work. Our podiatrist’s clinical evaluation will help determine the best type of orthotic for your particular needs and shoe types, including women’s dress shoes, soccer, baseball, football, cross-country, and tennis.

Our Weil Foot and Ankle Institute physician’s thorough evaluation will help determine the type of orthotic that would be most beneficial for your condition. Your prescription orthotics will be made using either electronically-scanned images or physical impressions of your feet.

Orthotics & Insurance

Orthotics are typically a covered service by most insurance providers. Our friendly team will both manage and expedite the process, so you will not have to worry about unnecessary costs.

Once you have received your orthotics, your doctor will explain the “break-in” process, and you will most likely be seen within the month for a follow-up evaluation to make sure you are on your way to being pain-free. At that time, your doctor will make the necessary adjustments to ensure your orthotics are comfortable for everyday wear.
