Prescription Orthotics

High Plains Podiatry specializes in custom orthotic prescription and biomechanical gait evaluation. For many problems like heel pain, flat feet, foot strain and some calluses, these inlays work by gently compensating for problems inherent in your feet. Oftentimes, custom orthotics can completely alleviate a need for surgery.

The Problem

Our feet were designed to walk on natural, soft surfaces like soil and sand. When our feet land on soil or sand, these surfaces give way to accommodate the lower limb's natural strike angle. Unfortunately, we give our feet a daily pounding by walking on unnatural hard, flat surfaces like pavement and floors. This can lead to poor alignment of the feet and legs, and cause wear and tear on other parts of the body including knees, hips and lower back.

How Custom Orthotics Can Help

Custom orthotics work to align the feet and body posture to their correct position and restore the lower limb's natural angle. Orthotics can provide natural, lasting relief for many chronic complaints including:

  • Chronic heel pain (plantar fasciitis)
  • Severe pronation: Arch problems
  • Knee pain (chondromalacia patella)
  • Bunions and forefoot joint pain
  • Morton's neuroma
  • Pediatric: heel pain and calcaneal apophysitis
  • Growing pains, shin splints & posterior tibial leg
  • Lateral ankle instability & peroneal tendonitis
  • High arch problems: Achilles tendon

State of the Art Technology: 3-D Digital Foot Scanning

At High Plains Podiatry, we utilize state-of-the-art laser-scanning technology to capture and display the unique shape and structure of your foot in seconds. This unique scanned model is then sent, with your prescription, to a laboratory. The 3D digital model is used to create your unique custom orthotic insole, specifically designed to fit your foot and improve the biomechanics of your gait.
