Orthotics Q&A

What are orthotics?

Orthotics are shoe inserts that support the health and wellness of your feet. They also increase comfortability and can improve athletic performance when used properly. Endurance Foot and Ankle offers sport-specific, custom orthotics using the innovative Smartcast® system. 

What is the Smartcast system for orthotics?

The Smartcast system at Endurance Foot and Ankle is the latest, industry-leading technology used to capture a precise casting of your feet and creation of custom orthotics tailored to your sport-specific needs. 

How do orthotics improve sports performance?

Endurance Foot and Ankle uses low-profile, state-of-the-art materials to create custom-fitted orthotics. Orthotics can alter how load is distributed through your foot, which can optimize foot mechanics and power.

Dr. Jones offers special appointments for orthotics that include biomechanical assessments and analysis of cleat fit, as well as pedal stroke mechanics for cyclists. He offers advanced running and gait analysis, which allows him to determine the best course of treatment to improve your athletic performance. 

Why else might I benefit from orthotics?

Orthotics aren’t just for sports training and events. Dr. Jones might recommend orthotics if you have a foot deformity, heel pain, or other conditions that cause foot pain or negatively affect your foot’s function and structure.

Are orthotics right for me?

To find out if you’re a candidate for custom orthotics, Dr. Jones will do a thorough assessment and exam to determine if you might benefit from custom orthotics. 

How often should I wear orthotics?

Wear your new custom-fitted orthotics as directed by Dr. Jones. He might recommend you wear them during sports training or any time you’re on your feet. See him periodically to have your feet evaluated to ensure your orthotics work the way they're designed and get fitted for new orthotics if needed.
