The team can determine which orthotics you need during a comprehensive foot and ankle exam. They may also suggest a gait analysis to evaluate how your body moves and how much support your feet and ankles need to stay healthy.

What type of orthotics do I need?

Rogers Foot & Ankle Institute offers custom orthotics made from different materials, ranging from soft foam to rigid plastics. The podiatrists determine which type of orthotics you need based on your overall health and the symptoms you experience.
