What are orthotics?

Orthotics are inserts that go inside your shoes. Unlike the arch supports and insoles you see at the local pharmacy, custom orthotics are individually designed to fit the specific structure of your feet. Custom orthotics also last longer because they’re higher-quality materials than over-the-counter orthotics. 

The team at 43rd St. Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation uses Foot Levelers, the world’s leading provider of custom orthotics. Foot Levelers uses revolutionary technology to create individualized orthotics for your unique biomechanics.

What problems do orthotics treat?

  • Heel pain from conditions like plantar fasciitis and heel spurs

  • Hip pain
  • Shin splints
  • Achilles tendonitis
  • Osteoarthritis
