Custom orthotics are specially made insert devices for your footwear, crafted specifically to your anatomy and designed to provide support and pain relief for your feet and ankles. Custom orthotics match the contours of your feet precisely and are formulated to your exact foot and ankle movements. Dr. Catlea Gorman, doctor of podiatric medicine, may prescribe orthotics to treat conditions producing pain, such as progressive foot deformities, plantar fasciitis, bursitis, or tendonitis.
During your office visit, Dr. Gorman will conduct a thorough examination of your feet, ankles, and condition to determine your candidacy for orthotics. Custom orthotics may be used to modify abnormal foot and ankle movements, provide cushioning and support for painful conditions on the bottom of your feet, or treat chronic and acute conditions to improve your pain and function.
If custom orthotics are recommended, a 3D scan of your feet will be taken. The scans show the contours of your feet and are used to mold the orthotics to fit specifically to you. The orthotics are made of top-notch materials and last many years when cared for properly.
Many insurances, including Medicare and Medicaid, do not offer custom orthotics as a covered benefit. Flagstaff Bone & Joint offers this service as self-pay only and will not seek reimbursement by your insurance policy. Cost: $300/pair
