Exercising with OrthoticsHere it is! The day has finally arrived! You've got your running shoes, your race confirmation, a reliable water bottle, and your trusty watch attached to your wrist. Are you forgetting anything? What about your custom orthotics? Acquiring orthotics for exercising could play a very crucial role in the health of your feet and ankles. If you have foot or ankle pains, don't leave home without them.

With the amount of technology that goes into the making of athletic footwear, you would think that they would provide your feet with everything they need. However, many companies line their footwear with thin insoles that break down after just a few uses. These liners are not designed to add extra cushion to the foot and they do not provide the right support. Custom orthotics can solve this problem.

From flat arches, overpronation, plantar fasciitis, bunions, blisters, and shin splints to leg-length discrepancies, custom orthotics can help to improve your foot health. Our custom inserts work by correcting the imbalances in your limbs and adjusting the angles at which your feet strike the ground. As an alternative to rehab or surgery, these personalized shoe inserts can help to prevent further problems and reduce or even eliminate the pain you're experiencing due to foot stress.

Not only do we mold the devices specifically to your foot, but we also take into consideration the type of materials that are best suited for your form of exercise. These inserts typically last about five years. Keep in mind that they are not an overnight solution. You'll need to break them in over the period of one or two weeks and they may cause slight discomfort while you're getting used to them.

We understand your passion for living a healthy lifestyle and want to keep you on your feet as long as possible. If you're experiencing any type of foot or ankle pain, call Foot Doctor of the East Bay in San Leandro, CA at (510) 483-3390, Los Gatos at (408) 356-6767, or Pleasanton at (925) 425-9684 today. Let us examine your feet and your condition to determine if custom orthotics for exercising should be a part of your next race day checklist.
