Advanced Technology for Your Foot & Ankle Health
Orthotics or custom insoles come in many shapes and sizes. They can be used as a preventive measure or to help relieve pain or discomfort associated with an injury or congenital abnormality. Custom orthotics, also known as custom insoles or arch supports, are specifically made to conform to your foot, thereby helping correct issues within the structure of your feet, ankles, and legs.
While custom orthotics can help correct and prevent many of your foot and ankle ailments, research shows that some of the more effective uses of orthotics are to prevent and treat plantar fasciitis and stress fractures of the tibia (shin bone). At Vargas Foot & Ankle Specialists, our experienced podiatrists offer high-quality custom orthotics in Sugar Land, Katy, and Houston, TX, to help alleviate your foot or ankle pain.
Why Custom Orthotics?
Our podiatrists may suggest custom orthotics to:
- Increase strength and performance if you’re an athlete
- Prevent injury if you walk or stand excessively
- Prevent diabetic foot issues such as ulcers
- Correct abnormalities and injuries such as:
- Flat feet
- Plantar fasciitis
- Feet with high arches
- Shin splints
- Aching legs
- Lower back pain
- Heel pain
Ensuring You Get the Right Orthotics
There are many types of orthotics. If you’re dealing with a problem such as fallen arches, there are multiple types of orthotics that could work for you. Only experienced podiatrists and foot doctors well-trained in best use orthotic practices can help you get the correct orthotics for your problem. At Vargas Foot & Ankle Specialists, we're proud to offer the FootMaxx™ Orthotics System, which brings targeted and fast relief.
What Is the FootMaxx™ Orthotics System?
Simply put, it is a computerized software system that takes accurate measurements of your feet and the way you walk. The FootMaxx system permits our team to see problems that podiatrists who only use x-rays and visual observations cannot see. Once the computer turns these measurements into a perfect picture of your foot, we will show you a video that demonstrates how your or your child’s feet work.
We will then create custom orthotics especially for you or your child that are made from semi-rigid plastic or graphite materials. We also can mold soft orthotics that provide painful feet with ample cushioning support. You will get superior results that decrease your foot pain and make your feet function properly.
