Custom Orthotics

What are custom orthotics?

insertsCustom orthotics are shoe inserts that we design just for you. We make this medical device from a mold of your feet. And, because they are unique to your feet, they target your personal foot pain.

How do we Make Custom Orthotics? 

To create orthotics, our skilled podiatrists start by making an impression of your foot. Once we have that mold, our orthotics lab scans that impression. Next, based on what the impression shows about your anatomy, we  create your perfect orthotic insert.

Don’t confuse a custom orthotic with the insoles you can buy at the drug store. While OTC insoles may add cushioning to your shoes, that’s all they can offer. In contrast, inserts we build to match your feet target your individual needs. Often, we can avoid surgery for foot conditions. Just by fitting you with a pair of orthotics!

What Conditions Do We Treat with Custom Insoles? 

Our custom orthotics help a variety of foot problems. First, they control abnormal foot motion. So if your feet roll inward (pronate), a pair of orthotics could help provide stability and offer pain relief.

If you have imbalances in your body, including legs of different lengths, custom insoles could help prevent pain and injury. And, along with other treatments, orthotics can relieve pain caused by heel spurs, bunions, shin splints, and other conditions. Also, after treating foot deformities such as bunions, wearing your orthotics can help prevent recurring issues.

Finally, many serious runners could benefit from a pair of orthotics. That’s why these custom insoles are a must for many athletes, helping them train longer, free from foot pain.  It’s important to remember: custom insoles can’t cure every foot condition. But, with the proper care from your Spring and Tomball, TX podiatrists, investing in orthotics can help you find relief for some of the more common foot problems you may encounter.

Custom Orthotics for Diabetics

Before you choose a prescription diabetic shoe, you may benefit from custom orthotics. Protecting your feet from diabetic foot complications is important. And orthotics give your feet added support. So you’re less likely to develop blisters from ill-fitting shoes. Or so your feet bear your weight evenly, since this helps avoid putting pressure on certain spots on your feet. Since pressure spots can spell trouble for diabetics.

Many people with diabetes also find relief from neuropathy pain when they choose diabetic orthotics. This, combined with our state-of-the-art neuropathy treatment, can help you walk comfortably and safely. And it may lower your risk for ulcers and even drop foot or diabetic amputations.

Dr. Walsh has been phenomenal! She had an awesome bedside manner with me as well as my children. Always talking them through every step of the way. You know you have found a lifelong doctor when you entrust your children's care to them. I have recommended Dr. Walsh to many of many friends and all have loved her.

I wanted to thank you for being so tender with Hallie yesterday.  She was eager to tell me that you thought she was "99.9% perfect."  Although her psoriasis/arthritis in no way defines her, I know she is aware of her health versus her three sisters.  You were the best part of her day and it meant the world to me.

After just 2 treatments with the MLS Laser for my ankle injury, I felt a significant decrease in pain and swelling.  I am very active in the gym so it was very important for me to heal quickly.  Each treatment is quick and painless as well which is a definite plus!  I would recommend this treatment to anyone in pain!

After having a severe case of Plantar Fasciitis, we tried all procedures and treatments to reduce pain and inflammation.  Nothing worked.  I was told by Dr. Bachmann of a new procedure, a laser treatment (MLS) that was new but very effective.  I tried it and after treatment #1 I already felt an improvement.  I'm on treatment 9 of 10 and can honestly say it has relieved the pain and constant irritation I was experiencing for the past 9 months.  I would recommend this treatment and the excellent service of Dr. Bachmann's team of health care professionals.
