Orthotics For Seniors

Seniors benefit immensely from custom-made orthotics.

Orthotics are special footwear and supports used inside shoes to correct how the foot arch and heal work to alleviate discomfort while correcting problems with walking.

For seniors, problems with the feet may indicate other health issues such as circulatory problems, arthritis and diabetes.


Often these concerns first reveal themselves through the feet.

To help seniors with foot care and their health:

•    check your feet or to have a family member help if you’re unable to do it on your own on a regular basis.

•    Avoid sitting in the same position for long periods of time. Don’t sit with your legs crossed for too long.

•    Good blood circulating to your feet is important at all times. When lying down, keep your feet elevated slightly on a pillow. If you’ve been sitting or lying down for a while, try to get up and move. Walking and stretching often is very helpful.  Warm foot baths are good for circulation.

•    It’s important that your feet have the proper support, are properly aligned and are comfortable and this is where orthotics may help. 

Custom-made orthotics can help alleviate foot pain and give more comfort and foot support.

Sometimes people adjust to pain over the years. Issues with the muscles and joints in the foot, knees, and other parts of your body, will only get worse if not corrected.

Some signs that you may need orthotics include pain in any part of the foot, such as the arch and heel, shin pain and even hip pain might also be indicators that you need orthotics.

If the tendon at the back of the heel starts to hurt or feel stiff, or if you have sharp pain in your heel or under your arches, or even if you start to develop bunions or ingrown toe nails, then you may need custom-fitted orthotics.
