Orthotics provide an amazing feeling of recovery, especially when they are custom molded. Our podiatrist, Adam Mucinskas, D.P.M., can provide you with the best fitting orthotics at Feet First Foot Care Specialists, LLC, located in Cromwell, CT, where we can be reached at (860) 632-5499. Our Patient Education library also contains a wealth of information for keeping your feet and ankles in their best possible shape.

Orthotics are designed to relieve pain, ease deformities, enable greater mobility and provide stability. Although they can be bought from stores without a prescription, those that are custom-molded to the specific contours of a patient's feet are most effective. An extensive choice of orthotics is offered for diverse foot complications. Orthotics alleviate pain for those with arthritis, tendonitis and other foot or ankle pain. There are two types of these devices:

  • Accommodative which protect and support foot deformities that cannot be corrected and help by providing cushioning and support.
  • Functional which help to balance the hind foot and the fore foot from mechanical issues and act to control asymmetrical motion.

A large group of the population use these devices to treat an underlying condition or for extra support. In particular, athletes who participate in high intensity activities use sports orthotics for stability or to treat a prior injury. Pregnant women may use them to alleviate pain radiating from their feet. Those with fractures may use these devices to cope with recovery after a cast has been removed. Others may use them to alleviate general pain. Patients with diabetes use orthotics to prevent further injuries. Furthermore, custom orthotics are especially helpful as they are not only made to match the contours of feet, but can be designed to react to the way individuals move. Runners can benefit immensely when examining wear patterns to see how these devices can help.

Due to the many benefits that orthotics can provide, there is a high likelihood of probability that your foot condition can benefit from the use of these devises. Whether you choose to buy them from a pre-cut size or have them custom fitted to your feet, we can provide you with the best option. So, contact us today for your pair!
