Foot Levelers FAQs
1. Do I need a prescription for custom orthotics?
Custom orthotics are medical devices crafted to fit your feet's unique anatomy and meet your individual needs. Since custom orthotics are made just for you, they do require a prescription. However, this fact does not mean you have to go through the hassle of seeing multiple physicians.
Our quality, caring doctors handle the entire process for you. After learning about your needs and situation and taking precise body measurements, they can prescribe the exact type of custom orthotics you require–whether these are insoles for flat feet, arch support insoles, or custom orthotic shoes. They will then assist you as you become more accustomed to your new orthotic shoes or shoe inserts.
2. Who can make custom orthotics?
It takes experienced technicians paired with the proper technology, like those at Foot Levelers, to create high-quality custom orthotics. As a result, our orthotics are not mass-produced, and there is no one-size-fits-all solution. Instead, our shoe inserts, insoles for flat feet, and orthotic shoes are individually crafted for you based on pinpoint accurate measurements of your body from foam impressions or 3D imaging.
3. Is it worth getting custom orthotics?
If you are among the overwhelming majority of Americans who have less-than-perfect feet, you can definitely benefit from custom orthotics. Custom-made arch support insoles, orthotic shoes, or shoe inserts can help resolve or prevent a number of problems, including plantar fasciitis, hip pain, ankle instability, low back issues, and much more.
4. Can you order custom orthotics online?
Accurate and precise measurements are needed to fabricate custom orthotics. These measurements should be taken under the supervision of a healthcare provider, so it will be necessary to visit a Foot Levelers provider near you. To view a list of providers in your area, click here.
5. Does insurance cover custom orthotics?
Some insurance plans will cover a portion of the cost of custom orthotics. Please inquire with your plan to learn more. Additionally, many health savings accounts (HSAs) and flexible savings accounts (FSAs) will cover custom orthotics.
6. What are the best custom orthotics?
The best custom orthotics are the ones designed to meet your unique needs. Every patient is different. The best orthotics for you would be custom-made for your individual body and designed for your specific lifestyle.
With that being said, our most popular custom orthotic is the InMotion®. This is our flagship product, offering support of all three foot arches, advanced temperature-regulating materials, and extra grip for traction and stability. It’s no wonder InMotion® is the world’s #1 custom orthotic.
7. How much do custom orthopedic shoes cost?
The cost of custom orthopedic shoes varies according to many factors. The shoe style, materials, and degree of support all affect price. Since every pair of orthopedic shoes is custom-made, it would not be possible to quote a price before our healthcare providers analyze your needs.
8. Do they make orthotics for sandals?
Absolutely! Foot Levelers has several attractive styles of orthotic sandals, including orthotic flip flops. So whether you are looking for a casual pair to wear around the house or more stylish sandals for your favorite activity, you can get comfortable, great-looking sandals designed with the orthotic features that are just right for you.
9. What sandals have the best arch support?
The best sandals for plantar fasciitis and arch support can be found in our line of Sandalthotics®. For example, theRoanoke combines rustic style with top-quality materials and support. For a more coastal appearance, consider our CAOSTM Orthotic Sandals with outstanding comfort and postural support.
10. Who can dispense orthotics?
Custom orthotics are classified as medical devices. As such, only licensed healthcare providers may dispense custom orthotics. To view a list of providers in your area, click here.
11. What pillows do chiropractors recommend?
Chiropractors typically will advise you to keep several points in mind when selecting a pillow. First, most off-the-shelf, mass-produced pillows do a poor job of supporting your neck, head, and back. In fact, these types of pillows can even contribute to pain and spinal issues.
Next, if you suffer from a spinal condition, such as whiplash, you should choose an orthopedic neck pillow specifically made for that condition. These pillows provide support where you need it most.
Finally, pick a pillow that has been made to fit your unique anatomy. A custom orthopedic pillow will fit this requirement and help you obtain restful, comfortable sleep.
12. Should I buy an orthopedic pillow?
Pretty much everyone can benefit from an orthopedic pillow. This type of pillow will fit you like a glove, allowing for pain-free waking hours and restorative sleeping time. However, individuals with conditions such as back pain, neck pain, and previous back trauma often find orthopedic pillows to be especially helpful.
13. What machines do physical therapists use?
Physical therapists use a variety of simple machines in daily therapy. Many of these devices are similar to chiropractor tools. These machines consist of harnesses that can help with posture improvement, rollers for balance enhancement and muscle strengthening, and apparatuses that aid with exercising the cervical spine muscles–just to name a few.
