Custom Foot Orthotics

Don’t Give Up Your Sport, Give Up the Pain.

If pain is getting in the way of your favorite activities, getting relief may be as simple as inserting a device in your shoes. Custom foot orthotics are devices that correct abnormal foot movements and are specially made just for the way you move.


Why Orthotics?

Orthotics are different from shoe inserts; orthotics are prescribed by a doctor and tailored to meet your unique needs. Custom foot orthotics from Aurora use the materials that best address your needs, so they feel natural and stand the test of time.

These devices can help you get lasting relief from:

  • Physical therapists specializing in orthotics: We help you get the most out of your orthotics by working with you from start to finish. Our orthotics experts start by taking a mold of your foot.

  • Injury prevention: With your new orthotics in place, we teach you techniques for reducing stress on your joints. For example, improving your running form can help you enjoy your sport pain-free for years to come. Find out more about our sports performance programs.

What to Expect

Getting Foot Orthotics for Foot Problems

Getting Shoe Inserts: What to Expect

A podiatrist, physical therapist or other foot specialist will examine your foot and listen carefully as you describe your symptoms. From there, they’ll discuss your options and help you choose an insert that best meets your needs.

Many people feel better with a standard, “off the shelf,” shoe insert. These standard shoe inserts come in many different types, and offer benefits like extra arch support.

You can also get semi-custom orthotics for specific foot types. While not custom-made for your feet, these inserts are semi-customized for particular foot types – like feet with heels that turn inward.

Whether you need standard or semi-custom inserts, our experts can help you get the right orthotics based on your unique needs.

Getting Custom Foot Orthotics: What to Expect

If your doctor prescribes custom foot orthotics, here’s what to expect:

  1. Your prescription will describe the size and materials the orthotics should be made of, along with your diagnosis of a specific condition. Find out more about the conditions we treat.
  2. We’ll make a mold of your foot and send it along with your prescription to a lab to make the orthotics.
  3. When the orthotics are ready, we’ll show you how to insert them into your shoes and how to take care of them.
  4. Insurance programs may cover most, if not all, of the costs associated with orthotics.
