Who Can Custom Athletic Orthotics Help?

Whether you are looking to protect and preserve your health or you want to make your walk more efficient, there are many people who can benefit from sports orthotics. An athlete might put sports orthotics inside of their running shoes to help maximize their performance or to treat or prevent an injury such as a sprain or a strain. Custom orthotics can also help address biochemical misalignments and make footwear that much more comfortable.

Generally speaking, orthotics can also help those who might be suffering from back or pelvic pain or those who are experiencing some sort of lower extremity issue. As soon as any biomechanical faults are detected, it's easier for the medical provider to address the consequential mechanical issues. Outside of being an athlete, those who experience a change in sleep posture can experience a misalignment that should be treated.

Athletic orthoses come with a range of benefits:

  • Increased contact surface area that helps create a better weight distribution when walking or running;
  • Reduced shock absorption;
  • Decreased muscle fatigue;
  • Faster recovery for the legs after training;
  • Improved balance and stability;
  • Optimized energy transfer throughout the body;
  • Optimized propulsion or forward movement that helps preserve energy.

  • Stage 1: Initial Evaluation

    During the initial evaluation, you will meet with your doctor to discuss your diagnosis and how our tailored solutions can fit into your life and your routine. We will discuss the different options that are suitable for you.

  • Stage 2: Measurements

    Once we have decided on the best sports orthotics options for you, we will take measurements. In some cases, we will make a cast with plaster or another malleable material.

  • Stage 3: Fabrication

    We then take the measurements, casts, or scans that we obtained during your appointment and send them to a network of fabrication facilities. Here, they will work to fabricate your final device.

  • Stage 4: Orthotics Delivery

    The final step is receiving your orthosis. Your clinician will work with you to ensure that it doesn’t only fit well, but that it functions how it should. They’ll discuss specific wearing schedules and best practices as well.
