Even though it has been rainy the past few weeks here in New Jersey, springtime weather will be here before we know it! Memories of spring remind us of blooming flowers, farmers’ markets, and… you guessed it! New shoes! Ok, so it might not have been the first thing that comes to mind, but it’s true. We replace our heavier, warmer winter shoes for lighter springtime sneakers. As the weather transitions, so does what we put on our feet! While it is certainly exciting to be wearing those new heels, we can’t forget that what we put on our feet’s main job isn’t just to look stylish, but to provide the necessary support as well.

Too often, our shoes simply cannot support our feet. This is where a podiatrist can help. Custom orthotics in your new springtime shoes will help you keep the spring in your step this spring. Many common foot problems can be alleviated with the help of a custom fit orthotic. Some examples of where an orthotic can help are: plantar fasciitis, tendonitis, diabetic foot ulcers, bursitis, or many different types of foot, ankle, and heel pain!

Frequently, we wear shoes that don’t provide the support that our feet desperately need to function painlessly. It’s easy to be tempted to buy the cheap shoe inserts we see at the drugstore. The problem is that everyone’s feet are different and these shoe inserts do not properly address your foot’s specific needs.  Your podiatrist can determine if custom orthotics are right for you before you waste your money buying cheap shoe-inserts at the big-box store. Here at Affiliated Foot and Ankle Care, we examine your feet and the way that you walk thoroughly to insure you are made the perfect orthotic to fit your needs. We talk to you about your unique needs to design a custom orthotic that is perfect for you. So, keep the spring in your step this spring, and make an appointment with your local podiatrist at Affiliated Foot and Ankle Care in Edison and Monroe NJ today!
