Foot structure, genetics, work activity and shoe choice are just some of the reasons lower extremity pain occurs. Orthotics over the past 20 years has been made differently and as technology changes so have we. We are now providing 3D printed orthotics that is the most accurate technology to improve foot function and pain relief. Maintaining the correct position of the foot and ankle is vital in reducing pain and deformities. Genetics, work activity and shoe choice are just some of the reasons lower extremity pain occurs. Just like with the construction of a building or home if the foundation is not perfect the structure will be unstable. Every human body is different and expecting a semi-custom or OTC insoles to provide maximum support and pain relief is difficult.
Orthotic are custom created for you and your condition. We are able to create flexible/ Hybrid orthotics or Ridged Frame orthotics. Dr Martins will conduct a complete examination with biomechanical exam to see what is best for you. All purpose, Sport, Flat and High heels, accommodative, and more. Some condition that we can help with properly made custom orthotics is:
Back Pain, Knee Pain, Hip Pain, Heel Pain, Plantar Fasciitis, Metatarsalgia, Morton Neuroma’s, Bunion Pain, Hammertoe, Arch Pain, Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome, Diabetic Ulcers, Charcot Deformity, Bursitis, Flatfeet, Foot Fatigue, Capsulitis, High Arch Feet, Foot Strains, Heel Spurs
These are perfect for patients looking for some flexibility and offloading. We can create dress orthotics to work boots. Again these are printed for you and unlike other custom orthotics we can fit it exactly into a work boot and dress shoe
These work very well for patients that need to maintain structure of the foot or reduce pressure on one area. These can be customized to different colors, shoes, and diagnosis.
Every year insurance companies change if they are covering the cost of the orthotics or not. There are many factors including a patient’s DIAGNOSIS. After the patient is evaluated in person or virtually Dr Martins will Dx a condition and the patient may choose to assess their coverage. However, MOST insurance does not cover the cost of insurance. Currently, there are only several insurances that have been covering orthotics. These include (are plan specific )
Blue Cross Blue Shield
The cost of the custom-made orthotics is $500 ( no tax). This includes a change of top cover as the orthotics wear down.
Orthotics are like tires on your car and are pending how often they are used and what terrain they are used on. On average we are able to get 2-3 years of life with this new technology.
At this time No. You will have to come in to get 3D scanned
We are able to turn them around in just 7 days.
