An orthotic is made from a 3D scan of a person’s foot, can be customized to his or needs, and can be made of many materials. Orthotics can serve as a treatment for a number of conditions including bunions, hammertoes, and plantar fasciitis, and can even be useful in preventing ulcer formation in diabetics. The condition and need of the patient will determine what type of orthotic is best for him or her, but orthotics have been proven successful when incorporated into a multifaceted treatment plan.
