I was also able to discuss with Dr. Blue another issue that I have had with my foot as a result of a spinal issue. He was able to tell me what could be done if the condition got worse. I started my treatment right away will have a follow-up as recommended.

Custom Orthotics FAQs
What are Custom Orthotics?
Custom orthotics are special inserts that are made on a patient-by-patient basis to treat an array of foot- and ankle-related problems. Orthotics use durable materials and precise measurements for a comfortable fit, and they can be made to fit all types of shoes, including athletic shoes and dress shoes. They may be rigid, semi-rigid, or soft.
What conditions can be treated with Custom Orthotics?
Custom Orthotics can be created to treat a variety of problems, including:
• Plantar fasciitis

• Corns and calluses
How are Custom Orthotics made?

Before they can be made, your provider will take very careful and precise measurements of your foot using special techniques. Then they'll send those measurements to the lab, which will create the orthotics specifically for you.
What is the difference between Custom Orthotics and the shoe inserts I can buy in a store?
You might think you can save money by buying shoe inserts at the drugstore to address some types of foot issues, but you might be surprised to learn those off-the-shelf inserts could cost you a lot more in the long run, for several reasons. First, as the name implies, custom orthotics are made specifically for your foot shape and your needs; there’s no guesswork. Over-the-counter inserts are made for the general public using broad concepts, which means they are far less effective in correcting foot- and ankle-related problems. They may even make some problems worse.
Custom orthotics are designed to last for a long time, and most insurance plans provide coverage, so your own costs are minimized. Mass-produced orthotics from a drugstore wear out very quickly and need frequent replacement, and they’re not covered by insurance. When you buy custom orthotics from Colorado Foot + Ankle Sports Medicine, you can be confident knowing you’re getting complete medical care and an accurate diagnosis of your needs for long-term relief of pain and other symptoms as well as improved mobility.
