Long days of standing can do a number on your feet, and if you are suffering from foot problems such as bunions or hammertoes, the pain can be even greater.

If foot discomfort has you reaching for the nearest chair and putting off walks or exercise, it's time to consider custom orthotics from Dr. Richard Wittock of the Ankle and Foot Institute in Fenton/St. Louis.

Unlike the cookie-cutter insoles or liners that you find at the drugstore, orthotics from our Fenton/St. Louis office are tailored to meet your specific needs, giving you long-lasting comfort so that you can go through your day pain-free.

How do I know if orthotics can help me?

If foot pain has become a constant issue and you aren't finding relief from over-the-counter remedies, orthotics can likely work for you. Orthotics from our Fenton/St. Louis office can be especially helpful if you have foot deformities, plantar fasciitis, bunions, bursitis, shin splints, back pain, high arches, flat feet, arthritis, diabetes, or hammertoes.

How are orthotics different from store-bought shoe liners?

Orthotics work by keeping your feet properly aligned so that they don't become irritated or sore. Whereas pre-made shoe inserts or liners are often flimsy and need to be hand-cut to size, orthotics from our Fenton/St. Louis office are designed for your specific feet, with customized materials and sizing.

At our Fenton/St. Louis office, we create only the best orthotics, made to be durable, comfortable, and effective. Our orthotics provide cushioning and support so you can exercise, walk or even just stand without your feet feeling restricted.

We offer orthotics in three styles: rigid, soft, and semi-rigid, each designed with a specific purpose, from absorbing shock to providing balance, in mind.

If you could use a little spring in your step, call the Ankle and Foot Institute in St. Louis at 636-717-1100 to see what orthotics can do for you!
