Q Can I wear orthotics while playing sports?
Absolutely. Athletes in many different sports benefit from the use of orthotics. Most sports put a lot of stress on feet and ankles. Orthotics stabilize and support your feet, absorb shock, improve foot control, help prevent injury and can improve your performance as well.
Dr. Danciger can provide custom orthotics that are molded specifically to your foot structure. Wearing custom orthotics in your shoes keep your feet supported where they need to be and help them function well despite the stress being put on them. If you have an underlying condition such as flat feet or high arches, orthotics are also highly effective in protecting your feet during activity from fatigue, pain and injury.
If you have been playing with pain or are concerned about how your current orthotics may affect your performance, talk to Dr. Danciger. He can assess your foot condition and activity level and either provide custom orthotics or answer any questions you may have.
