How do you know if you need orthotics?
If you’re experiencing foot swelling or pain during or after normal activities like standing, walking, or running, you should book an appointment with a podiatrist. They will do an assessment and recommend the best course of treatment.
Is an orthotic a medical device?
Yes. Custom orthotics are medical devices prescribed by surgeons and medical professionals. They aren't the same as mass-made shoe inserts or arch supports bought at drugstores.
How much do custom-made orthotics cost in New Mexico?
The cost of custom-made orthotics in Las Cruces and Albuquerque, New Mexico varies depending on several factors, such as the type of orthotic, materials used, and insurance coverage. It's best to consult with an orthotics specialist to determine the exact cost of your custom orthotics based on your individual needs and circumstances.
Are orthotics covered by insurance?
Most insurance companies cover the cost of most, if not all, orthotics when they're deemed medically necessary. It’s best to call your insurance provider to check what type of coverage for which you qualify.
How long do custom orthotics last?
The lifespan of custom orthotics can vary depending on several factors, such as the type of orthotic, frequency of use, and level of activity. On average, custom orthotics can last between 1-5 years, but it's best to consult with an orthotics specialist to determine the expected lifespan of your custom orthotics based on your individual needs and circumstances.

How We Work
- Step 1: Initial Evaluation
Upon being referred by your doctor, we'll schedule an appointment with one of our experienced orthotists who will perform a comprehensive evaluation. In this consultation, the orthotist will engage in a dialogue with you about your diagnosis and how the use of a support device such as a brace, foot orthosis, or other orthotics will fit into your lifestyle. Our focus on personalization ensures that your unique needs and goals are taken into account.
- Stage 2: Measurements
At our facility, we take precise measurements of your anatomy, and when necessary, a cast is created using materials like plaster or other flexible substances to form the shape of the orthoses. Our clinicians employ sophisticated scanning technologies to obtain accurate measurements for the construction of your custom orthotics. This state-of-the-art approach ensures the highest level of precision in the fabrication process.
- Stage 3: Fabrication
Upon receiving approval from your insurance provider, our orthotist will transmit your measurements, casts, or scans to the fabrication facilities of our valued partner. There, highly trained technicians will utilize the latest techniques and equipment to convert the data into the finished orthotic device. By collaborating with PrimeCare, you can ensure that your custom orthotics are of the highest quality and precision.
- Stage 4: Orthosis Delivery
Our clinicians will arrange an appointment with you to ensure that your orthotic device is fitting properly and functioning as intended. Additionally, they will provide you with a schedule to help you become accustomed to wearing your new orthosis. This helps to gradually increase the duration of usage, ensuring that you achieve the maximum benefit from your custom device.
