Walk the Talk: Why You Need Orthotics

Walk the Talk: Why You Need Orthotics

Make An Appointment

Your feet support the weight of your entire body. So when your feet are in pain, your whole body suffers. Foot orthotics provide extra support and cushion to your feet so they can support you properly. Not only do they provide relief your foot pain but also help manage knee pain, heel pain, and arch pain.

You might be wondering why you need custom made orthotics for it. Why not go for the regular ones? Well here’s why and how custom made orthotics can manage most foot problems:

They’re made for your medical condition

While shoe inserts can give you temporary relief, they won’t completely solve your problem. Custom orthotics are medical devices that are made for your specific medical condition. If you have chronic pain, you’ll first visit a doctor who’ll prescribe you orthotics based on your condition. This way, custom orthotics are more efficient and effective in relieving your pain than simple inserts bought from a store.

They provide support where you need it

Since they’re made according to the doctor’s prescription, they provide extra support and cushion exactly where your foot needs it.

Alleviate pain and prevents injury

A study published in the Journal of the American Podiatric Medical Association showed that custom made foot orthotics reduce pain twice more than the traditional treatment.


Chronic pain can lead to further complications and even injury. Custom made foot orthotics provide foot pain relief and protect your feet from future injury.

Correct your foot abnormalities

Foot abnormalities like high arches put stress on your feet, knees, and back causing you increased pain. Custom orthotics correct these abnormalities.

Give you comfort and the confidence to participate actively

They’re made to fit your foot shape and structure so they provide you added comfort and confidence to live your normal life. They allow you to walk and stand comfortably and actively participate in physical activities.

Are they worth the cost?

Off-the-shelf foot insoles are mass produced so they definitely cost less. But custom made orthotics don’t just reduce pain; they provide plenty more medical benefits. When your health is in question, every dollar is worth it!

I thought I was going to have to deal with plantar fasciitis for the rest of my life. I had done all the recommended steps from orthotics, icing, stretching, massage…nothing worked. I saw Jason. He said 5 treatments with shockwave therapy should significantly improve the problem. I said no way. In a way, I was right-it took 6 treatments but I’m pain free. Amazing. Great service and a product that works.
Thank you to Dr. Nanda and his great team of specialist for taking care me. Very friendly and knowledgable!
Here is what I say about my shock treatments. I have had chronic back pain for over 40 years. Nothing has worked for me and I have tried many, many types of back treatments. Nothing worked. I was going to go for laser spine surgery. Divergent was going to be my last “try” before laser surgery. I went in with absolutely NO expectations. I had one treatment, walked out thinking “okay, my back doesn’t hurt but that won’t last.” Well guess what? It works!!!! I have had 5 treatments since May, 2017 and I have no back pain. None! Without Divergent and Dr. Jason, my life would still be a painful one. Jason, you have saved me. Anyone with any pain needs to go to Divergent. With many thanks to all of you.
I have been suffering with Plantar Fasciitis in both of my feet for over a year now and the pain was just too unbearable to deal with. I did all the recommended stretching, icing and other treatments that just didn’t help. So, I said enough is enough as I deserve to feel better than this and made the appointment at Divergent Health Care.
