What are orthotics?

Orthotics are custom-designed devices that provide support and relieve various foot-related issues. These shoe inserts mold to your feet’s exact shape, size, and contours, promoting proper alignment and distributing pressure evenly. 

Mesilla Valley Footcare offers custom-made orthotics to address your unique needs and provide personalized solutions for improved comfort and foot health.

How are store-bought orthotics different from prescription orthotics?

Prescription orthotics stand out due to their tailored customization to your feet and specific needs. Dr. Cadena and Dr. Miranda design these orthotics to closely match your foot anatomy and biomechanical requirements.

Store-bought orthotics offer generic, mass-produced solutions without the personalized touch that custom-made options provide. Opting for custom-made orthotics ensures you experience enhanced comfort and targeted support based on the unique characteristics of your feet.

These provide cushioning and support, particularly beneficial if you're dealing with foot discomfort or conditions like plantar fasciitis, offering a comfortable solution for your specific needs.


With less flexible materials, these orthotics are ideal for correcting foot alignment issues or addressing biomechanical imbalances, providing stability for your feet.


Striking a balance between softness and rigidity, these orthotics offer support and flexibility, making them suitable for various foot conditions and ensuring a tailored solution for your comfort and stability.
