“With an increase of women in the workforce, there is a corresponding increase in overuse injuries and chronic foot pain. Custom dress orthotics are an essential part of the treatment plan for women’s foot injuries. It takes time, education and patience to deal with women’s dress shoes.”
Custom orthotics are prescription inserts that are specially made to support and comfort your feet. They are designed for your unique foot structure and pathology by a podiatrist.
Orthotic devices come in many shapes, sizes, and materials and fall into three main categories: those designed to change foot function, those that are primarily protective in nature, and those that combine functional control and protection.
While many people wear orthotics for gym shoes or walking shoes, dress orthotics are just as important for those standing on their feet all day in a professional environment! Orthotics are available for many types of dress shoes! They can generally be worn in closed shoes with a heel height under two inches. Combinations of semi-flexible material and soft material can accommodate painful areas and are utilized for specific problems.
