How Custom Orthotics Can Improve Your Life
Many of us experience foot pain after long hours of standing at work or pounding the pavement during a daily run. You may have tried soaking or massaging your aching feet, or even purchased drugstore insoles or pads for your shoes. But if your feet are causing you constant discomfort, custom orthotics could be the key to lasting relief.
Dr. Steven Vetter and Dr. Jugal Dharia of Oakton Foot and Ankle Center in Fairfax can fit you with custom orthotics so you can stand and stroll in comfort.

What are orthotics?
Orthotics are insoles for your shoes that help keep your foot properly aligned. At our Fairfax office, your podiatrist will help you customize your insoles by selecting specific materials that accommodate your needs. Your orthotics will be sized to fit the shoes you wear on a daily basis, whether your work loafers or your athletic sneakers. By providing support and cushioning, your orthotics will help you participated in physical activities with less risk of injury while alleviating discomfort.
Why are custom orthotics a good investment?
If you have tried drugstore shoe inserts, you've likely found them to be flimsy, quick to wear out and poorly fitted to your shoes. The custom orthotics from our Fairfax office are crafted to last, made durably and designed to target the exact areas of your foot that experience pain when walking or standing.
With comfortable, quality orthotics, you can get through your work day and your exercise routine in comfort.
