Orthotics are inserts designed to be inserted into the shoe to help support the foot and align the ankle.
Custom orthotics are a special type of orthotic designed specifically for your foot, so they are more effective at controlling your foot and reducing pain while the Plantar Fasciitis heals. If your pain has improved with strapping, there is a good chance that orthotics will be an effective long term solution for treating your Plantar Fasciitis.
They quickly and easily reduce load on the Plantar Fascia, and the main benefit is that you can ‘set and forget’. Unlike repeated, long-term strapping, orthotics save time and eliminate the need for help from someone else. They also do not cause irritation to the skin.
