Freedom From Foot Pain With Custom Orthotics
Millions of Americans suffer from undiagnosed foot pain and much of it goes untreated. Instead of simply accepting life with foot, leg, knee, hip, or lower back pain, people have a choice to get to the root of the issue with foot orthotics. The simple solution of wearing custom orthotics provides relief from chronic pain and gives the stability and mobility needed to carry on through life.
Why We Need Orthotics
Wearing orthotics creates stability and corrects the imbalances that cause foot and joint pain. Orthotics provide everyday support and cushioning for the average person as well as stability for high-performance athletes in constant motion. Wearing insoles from Footstar Orthotics will increase function for anyone, regardless of their activity type or lifestyle.
Many people today will work or walk on hard surfaces such as concrete and asphalt. These surfaces are unforgiving on the body’s muscles and joints, causing the foot to compensate for the lack of give in the ground. Because of the rigidity of the surfaces we walk on today, the foot is made to flatten, compress, and rotate with every step we take. This can lead to a number of problems in the feet, including plantar fasciitis, Achilles pain, flat feet, as well as other types of pain that affect the lower limbs such as shin splints, calf pain, knee pain, hip pain, and lower back pain.
Orthotics are custom made to fit each person’s foot and correct the misalignments that are unique to their body. Properly fitted orthotic insoles will provide relief from foot pain and can treat chronic lower body pain from the source of the problem. Orthotics realign the feet and restore the balance needed for increased functioning, pain relief, endurance, and quality of life.
Life With Foot Pain
When a person experiences foot pain, they are likely suffering throughout their day, even when the foot is not in use. They may have aching arches when walking, pain in the ball of the foot, Achilles tendon pain, or bunions and calluses. Pain may radiate up the leg in the form of shin splints or knee pain.
Standing or simple walking can become difficult for those who experience foot pain. People may find themselves becoming more sedentary or avoiding their usual daily activities. They may even blame their shoes. However, even the most sensible footwear will not be enough to put an end to chronic foot pain. When foot pain gets in the way of a person’s regular work, life, or leisure activities, it has become a problem that needs to be addressed. Unfortunately, many people do not get the help they need or do not know about the orthotic options available to them.
For an athlete or someone who works in an active job, they may find themselves taking time off from work or training and undergo a costly and time-consuming physiotherapy regimen. Time taken on leave from a job or professional sports training can put a tremendous strain on a person’s financial circumstances, making treatments like regular physiotherapy difficult. Other times these individuals may find themselves overcompensating with other parts of the body which can cause aching and pain in those areas. Foot pain often goes largely untreated, but serious cases can cause a dramatic disruption to a person’s lifestyle and well-being.
When a person starts to wear orthotic arch supports, they will notice right away the sensation of their feet being properly supported. While it takes time for chronic back or knee pain to subside, they will likely feel some relief right away, and many of their problems will be alleviated within the first few days or hours of wearing custom orthotics. They will likely notice improved posture and an easier, more effortless stride. Custom orthotics take the pressure off of painful areas of the foot and provide a more padded feeling overall. The benefits of wearing arch support insoles will increase the more they wear them.
Health Benefits Of Wearing Orthotic Insoles
Custom made orthotics treat the root of the problem instead of just treating the area where the pain is located. Many sufferers of chronic lower body pain seek out therapy to treat the areas of concern, however, the pain usually only subsides for a time, only to come back when a person resumes their normal activities. Whether it is running marathons or simply standing and walking around the house, a person with foot pain will not find the ultimate relief that they need without the use of foot orthotics to correct alignment on a regular basis.
Any number of activities can cause foot pain, including running and high impact sports, working at a job that causes a person to be on their feet all day, or even standing and casual walking for extended periods of time. Arch support insoles take the stress off of the areas of the body that need relief. This allows the body to return to a more stable way of functioning without pain. When a person is free from foot or lower body pain, they are able to enjoy a more healthy and active lifestyle without limitations.
How Orthotic Inserts Are Made
Our patented mail-in foot impression system allows us to serve people all over the country. An impression of the foot is easily taken in just a few simple steps. After an impression is received, it takes approximately 10 days to 2 weeks for a pair of custom orthotics to be ready for delivery. Our cutting-edge software scans the foot impression with state-of-the-art lasers, allowing us to calculate the exact measurements of the foot with great accuracy. We translate these measurements into custom orthotic insoles in a short amount of time so our clients can move forward with a life free from foot pain.
A visit to any of our storefront locations allows customers to try our pressure mapping technology, letting them see the areas where their feet are applying too much pressure and where there is inadequate support. Our revolutionary measuring and manufacturing techniques make us the leader in affordable and easily accessible custom orthotics.
Footstar’s products are made from the highest quality EVA memory foam to provide customers with all of the technology and design required to alleviate their foot pain, without compromising their ultimate comfort. Our materials range from ultra-strong carbon fiber to feather-light EVA foam. Whether you need a highly durable work boot orthotic or a whisper-thin foam orthotic for dancing, the same rules of comfort and function always apply. We take pride in using the finest materials to ensure the most hardworking and long lasting product. Our orthotics are covered in a range of fabrics from ultra-suede to waterproof materials that allow for breathability, washing, and comfortable wearing in wet conditions.
Footstar’s Unique Process
Footstar Orthotics’ patented foam impression kit allows customers to easily and accurately take their own foot impressions in the comfort of their own homes. Most other custom orthotics need to be measured in-office, which is not always convenient. Footstar’s foam impression kit comes with easy to follow instructions that make it possible for anyone to quickly take an impression of their foot and send it back to us without error. The Footstar Orthotics impression kit is simple, fast, and easy to use. It provides accurate measurements right away. When a client sends their kit back to us, we will have all of the information needed to create their custom orthotics.
When we receive your impression kit, we use advanced lasers to scan and create a digital contour of the foot. Our unique software was built to identify the exact areas where the foot’s pressure is too high, as well as the areas that do not have enough pressure or support. This imbalance is exactly what causes pain. Our technology allows us to create products that can be worn by everyone, from Olympic athletes to the average pedestrian. Footstar Orthotics is the only custom orthotic company to offer the benefits of this caliber and quality of technology to their customers.
Why Choose Custom-made Orthotics
Contrary to what many people believe, wearing orthotic supports does not make their feet look any different than they would in normal shoes. They also will not make shoes fit too tightly or require customers to buy a larger shoe size. Footstar’s line of custom orthotics fit seamlessly into a variety of shoe types and can be worn for a number of different uses. When a customer chooses a custom fitted orthotic, they make the best choice for their feet and overall well-being.
Store-bought orthotics can provide some level of support and relief from foot pain, but they are not tailored to an individual’s foot. They are designed to fit a typically shaped foot, but since everyone’s bodies are unique this means that store-bought insoles will not provide the support that everyone needs. In some cases, store-bought orthotics may just transfer pressure from one area of the foot to another instead of alleviating it. While today’s selection of over-the-counter arch supports for shoes offer a wide variety of choices, people often do not know the specifications of what they should be looking for to relieve their pain. When the customer is not fully aware of their needs, it becomes difficult to determine the proper insoles to purchase, no matter how much selection there is.
Custom-made orthotic insoles are a much better option for those who want to alleviate foot and lower body pain. When arch support inserts are created for a person’s unique foot shape, they will benefit from immediate comfort and reduced pressure.
Footstar’s Range Of Orthotic Insoles
There are many different types of custom-made orthotic inserts, ranging from those used by professional athletes to those made for leisure wear.

Some of the popular custom orthotic options that we create for our customers include:
