Last week we told you how useful orthotics can be in dress shoes. This week we’re going to share how important orthotics are for athletic footwear.

While orthotics are interchangeable between most shoes, there are certain types that are made uniquely for one type of shoe. We can create orthotics especially for the sport of your choice, whether it is tennis, golf, soccer, running, or even ice skates.  We can even make them waterproof.

Almost no one has the perfectly arched foot, and the stresses of impact activities can definitely damage your feet over time.  Flat feet can become flatter, bunions can grow larger, and those with high arched feet can develop painful areas in the heels and balls of their feet.

This is where orthotics for the active person come in. In addition to correcting the biomechanical issues with your foot structure, orthotics add cushion and help with shock absorption. These can help you to perform at the best of your ability. 

At DM Foot & Ankle, we create custom orthotics specific to your sport, whether you are a kid or an adult. If you don’t have a pair yet, stop by our office to get fitted!
