(HealthDay News) -- Custom orthotics are specially made devices designed to support and comfortthefeet, ankles and legs.
Orthotics are made typically after a podiatrist has conducted a complete physical evaluation of these areas, the American Podiatric Medical Association says.
If you are considering orthotics, the association suggests these things to keep in mind:
- Consider your health. If you have diabetes or other problems with circulation, an insert may not be the best solution. Consult your doctor for the best approach.
- Select a product that's suited for your planned activities.
- When fitted for orthotics, be sure to bring the shoes you intend to wear.
- Once the orthotics are produced, try them on and walk around a bit to see how they feel.
