More about Custom Orthotics in Port Washington

Semi-rigid custom foot orthotics are the maximum support option available. They work great for dress shoes and work boots. They’re long-lasting and durable because they are made of a high-density polypropylene. They are used for many different types of feet issues; however, a proper examination is needed for treatment.

Custom orthotics or rigid orthotics are used in advanced cases. These are custom made by our podiatrist, Dr. Kaplan. He will examine your feet and design inserts that will force the feet back into their proper position. This is the most effective way to treat feet problems.

Heat molding orthotics are another option that is used in less severe cases. They are similar to custom orthotics that are purchased in a store. Made of EVA, a special type of plastic, they feel like a soft rubber. They are heated, which molds to the shape of the foot.
