How Can Orthotics Help Plantar Fasciitis?Foot Doctor in Ronkonkoma

Plantar fasciitis is a prevalent foot condition caused by aggravation and excessive stress on the connective tissue stretching from the heel bone to the ball of your foot (the plantar fascia). When this area becomes inflamed, each step can become painful. This cycle of overstretching, pain, and inflammation can set in and cause plantar fasciitis.  A quality pair of custom orthotics from our foot doctor in Ronkonkoma can make all the difference in improving your plantar fasciitis. Orthotics are a highly effective conservative treatment, as they provide cushioning and arch support to your sensitive heel pads. Here are some of the benefits you can experience from custom orthotics for plantar fasciitis:

  • Support – Custom orthotics are designed to provide adequate support for the arches of your feet to ensure more stability as you walk and stand. 
  • Protection – Plantar fasciitis can make walking, running, or jumping uncomfortable. Over time, this force can worsen your condition and limit your mobility. Orthotics help your feet support the load of your body and can absorb impact. 
  • Reduced Pain – Foot misalignments like plantar fasciitis can lead to pain in your feet and other areas of the body. Custom orthotics can help promote healing and pain relief from biomechanical misalignments without causing strain on other areas of your body. 

Custom orthotics can help you maintain proper foot positioning and facilitate optimal healing from painful conditions like plantar fasciitis. Our foot doctor in Ronkonkoma will evaluate the severity of your plantar fasciitis and determine if orthotics are right for you!
