Orthotic FAQs

Below are answers to questions that we are frequently asked. If you have a question that is not listed below, please feel free to contact us.

Foot orthotics are a custom molded insert for your shoe that is based on a biomechanical theory in how to keep your foot and lower extremity functioning properly. They are not only used for foot problems, but also can also be used for ankle, knee, hip and lower back symptoms, related to the abnormal functioning of the lower extremity.
Orthotics can alleviate the pain associated with your foot problem. I tell patients that orthotics are similar to eyeglasses. They correct the foot problem while you are wearing them, but as soon is you take them off the same problem is still there. If patients wear their orthotics on a regular basis most foot pain is usually alleviated.
There are different types of orthotics. Athletic orthotics will switch from shoe to shoe as long as they have a removable insole. Dress orthotics will fit into most of your dress shoes but not all of them. A new area for orthotics has been the use of custom orthotics made for sandals.
Most definitely orthotics can be used for all athletic activities. Oftentimes many athletes could not perform without their orthotics, due to the discomfort associated with biomechanical problems.
A prefab orthotic is a generic support that does not match a persons arch and cannot support the body weight. An icon is made to be in full contact with the patients arch and specifically designed to the patients body weight so it can support the patients body weight without being too rigid which would make it uncomfortable.

What Our Patients Say

by Charlie A.

"I experienced heel pain for about a year and a half and it got to the point where I couldn't get out of bed...Now I'm back up to about 98% and I can crank out 2 hour runs without any pain and no problem at all."


Fernando V.

"I have had problems with my feet for many years, and I had stopped exercising because of it. I was fitted with a sports orthotic by Dr Klein, and with his help I have had a improvement with them. I am back to running and could not have done it without Dr. Klein."


Bob Steel

"I visited Dr. Klein due to a Plantar problem in my right heel. Dr. Klein was extremely professional in his diagnosis and treatment of my problem. My condition was extremely painful to me for three weeks prior to my visit. I was fitted for a specialty sports orthotic and the results were dramatic. I no longer have pain when I walk or play golf. my balance in my golf swing has greatly improved and walking is no longer a painful experience. Highly recommend."
