Orthotics For Kids, Adults, and Every Age In Between

By Dr. Christopher Milkie of Milwaukee Foot & Ankle Specialists of Milwaukee, WI

Here at Milwaukee Foot Specialists in Milwaukee, Wisconsin (WI) we believe every patient is unique. Of course we treat each patient as special, but our beliefs go further than that. Each and every person has our own unique foot type and gait. We all walk differently. One patient’s big toe may have limited mobility; another may have trouble at their ankle joint or even have a high arch. The list of differences is endless. In the end, not only do we all have a slightly different foot structure, we all also walk with slightly different tendencies. With so many different feet, why do we all wear the same generalized footwear?

If you have a certain foot type, insufficient support from your shoes may result in problems. You may end up putting too much pressure on one part of you foot causing ulcerations. You may have to, albeit unknowingly, change the way you walk resulting in knee and even back pain. The list of resulting issues goes on, however there is a great solution: customized orthotics. Customized orthotics are specialized inserts that you place inside your everyday shoes. They can help to add support in the places you may need, and even adapt the way your foot reacts to the ground to correct for gait abnormalities. All that we need to do is take a cast or mold of your foot and do a biomechanical evaluation of your foot. With the information gained from these simple procedures we can have a custom orthotic made specially for you.

Orthotics are great for so many types of patients. Adolescent (teenage) athletes with knee pain can be helped by orthotics. Adult patients with painful feet from a variety of reasons will benefit from orthotics. Orthotics, sometimes called arch supports, can be helpful for kids. They can provide relief in patients young and old with flat feet. The list goes on for the uses of custom orthotics for children and adults. Our foot specialists in Milwaukee, Wisconsin (WI) will be happy to make sure you can get all of the specialized footwear your unique feet need. Let us find out if orthotics will be helpful to you by setting up an appointment today!
