Why Choose Our
Custom Made Foot Orthotics?

Our Custom Made Foot Orthotics are designed to support and comfort your feet!

Your feet get you from point A to point B with little thanks. And since they bear the brunt of your weight against hard unforgiving surfaces, it should come as little or no surprise that foot pain is not uncommon.

The goal of Custom Foot Orthotics is to help your feet function properly and pain-free*. Foot Orthotics are also used to treat and prevent excessive foot movement. At Shephard Health, we realize that every foot that we see is completely different.

We examine your biomechanical gait and we help you re-align your body’s core foundation. Our custom made orthotics and insoles are much more economical (compard to other foot orthotics).

Most regular orthotics are made of strong, rigid and inflexible materials that require your feet to adapt to the orthotics. Since our orthotics are custom made to the shape of your feet, they are built to adapt to you and your lifestyle. Our insoles are sometimes referred to as Arch Supports.

We can treat and diagnose many foot ailments including Plantar Fasciitis, Pronation, Supination, Bunions, Morton’s Neuroma and other foot ailments.

Frequently Asked Questions

Here are some of the more frequently asked questions about Foot Orthotics that our team receives.

Q) Should I wear my custom orthotics all the time?

A) The longer you wear your custom orthotics, the more benefit you will get out of them. If your daily activities vary to the extent that you change your footwear, then you should have a second pair of custom orthotics designed for that specific activity. (I.e. going to the gym after work)

Q) Why do my new custom orthotics feel uncomfortable?

A) Since the custom orthotic works to realign the structure of your foot you may feel pressure in some areas as the custom orthotic attempts to do its job. For this reason, custom orthotics should be worn in two hour intervals and slowly extend the wear time over a period of two weeks.

Q) Will my muscles get weaker wearing custom orthotics?

A) Custom orthotics will not reduce muscles tone. They will help position your foot so you will be using the right muscles at the right time, minimizing fatigue and allowing your muscles to be used more efficiently.

Q) Who needs a foot orthotic?

A) If required, all ages can benefit from a foot orthotic. From discomfort in the foot to severe problems such as diabetic foot ulcers, a foot orthotic can help a wide range of patients. A detailed assessment by Dr. Jay Shephard can confirm if a foot orthotic will assist a patient with a particular foot, leg or even back problem.

Q) How long will a foot orthotic last?

A)  The lifespan of a foot orthotic varies from patient to patient. The materials used to make the foot orthotic, the patient’s foot structure, levels of activity, age, and physical condition all impact the orthotic’s lifespan. The lifespan of a foot orthotic should not be measured by when the  cover material wears out but by how long the orthotic meets the foot’s changing needs for support, correction and pressure redistribution. If your symptoms begin to return, it is a good idea to have your orthotic reassessed to determine if modifications or a new device are necessary.
