Sore feet? Sore back? Do you think Orthotics or Orthopedic Shoes will help? Well, it’s best you find out from the right people. Your benefits plan is designed to help pay only for Orthotics and Orthopedic Shoes that are medically necessary, and that is best determined by a specialist. Orthopedic Shoes are specifically designed footwear to relieve discomfort associated with many foot and ankle disorders, such as blisters, bunions, calluses and corns, hammertoes, planter fasciitis, or heel spurs. They may also be worn by individuals with diabetes for people with unequal leg length. The shoes typically have a low heel, tend to be wide with a particularly wide toebox, and have Term heels to provide extra support. Some may also have a removable insole, or orthotic, to provide extra arch support.
