Custom orthotics are inserts made by taking a plaster mold of the patient’s feet while holding the feet in a neutral position.  The goal of utilizing custom-made orthotics is to maintain the feet in proper alignment during ambulation.  Orthotics provide the benefits of reducing foot pain, as well as back and joint pain in certain situations.  Many long-term biomechanical issues can be prevented by the use of custom orthotics.

Custom orthotics can also be designed for skis.  The goal of these orthotics are to provide stability to the foot during the various motions while skiing.  Regular shoe orthotics control the position of the foot joints from the time the heel hits the ground to the time the toes push off.   Ski orthotics are responsible for controlling side to side motion and maintaining support to the foot.  Many skiers have experienced greater comfort in their feet and the rest of their bodies while utilizing orthotics.

Many ski resorts will make ski orthotics for their clients at the site.  It is my opinion that it is best to visit your local podiatrist and utilize his or her expertise when seeking these types of orthotics.  The podiatrist also tends to use superior orthotic labs to fabricate the devices.

Here at East Avenue Podiatry, your foot comfort is of the utmost concern to us whether you are walking, running or skiing.  So please enjoy the winter in great comfort and don’t let foot pain inhibit your activities.
