An important distinction needs to be made between an over-the-counter foot insert and a custom molded prescription orthotic. Any shoe insert that you by over-the-counter is nothing more than a piece of plastic with some foam. A shoe store, even if it’s a running shoe store, does not provide custom orthotic. A Custom molded prescription orthotic is made by a foot and ankle physician and involves taking biomechanical measurements, performing a gait analysis and incorporating any pathological foot or ankle conditions. Custom molded prescription orthotic can be made for athletic shoes, flats, dress shoes and even some high heels. The best custom molded prescription orthotics are made at Issaquah Foot & Ankle Specialists.
