How Orthotics Work To Alleviate Frustrating Foot Pain Including Plantar Fasciitis!
Intense foot pain that makes even simple tasks difficult can be incredibly frustrating. In many cases foot pain is due to too much weight being transferred through the foot in a manner that it is not prepared for. Orthotics are able to manage this weight transfer in a way that takes stress off of the foot. When walking we transfer our weight through our foot. Sometimes the weight transfer is not as smooth as it needs to be. This puts more stress through certain areas of the foot. These highly stressed areas can develop overuse injuries like plantar fasciitis.
Custom molded orthotics redistribute the weight that is transferred through the foot. This redistribution is aimed at reducing the stress put on the areas that are developing overuse injuries. When the foot comes down with an orthotic in place the force is transmitted throughout the orthotic. The orthotic is able to dampen the amount of stress placed on the individual parts of the foot.
Reducing the stress to these areas allows for them to recover properly. This proper recovery allows the area to heal and for pain to reduce.
Cryos Custom Orthotics Insoles
Our Cryos customized orthotic system can help to optimize your movement and reduce your pain. Cryos orthotics are uniquely designed to help guide the foot through its natural motion. While traditional orthotics immobilize the foot the goal with these orthotics is to instead help to optimize the movement of the foot. In general traditional orthotics either attempt to stop the foot from going into certain positions or to keep the foot in a certain position. Cryos orthotics help the foot control the movements that it goes through instead of eliminating movements. We are the only provider in Pittsburgh to offer this customized orthotic insole solution! If you’re in Pittsburgh and you’ve been googling for “custom orthotics near me” then you have found the right place.
The Cryos customized orthotic system uses a 2D and 3D scanner to take multidimensional pictures of your foot. From these pictures the system is able to make an orthotic that is customized specifically to your foot. The scans are accurate, quick and easy to do. The scans are sent to a lab in Canada which then uses a 3D printer to make your custom insole.
What sets Cryos Orthotics apart from other insoles
Helps You Move – Cryos’s goal is to help with proper movement without immobilizing the foot.
Truly Custom Orthotics – A 3d scan of your foot is made using a state of the art system. This scan is then used to 3d print your orthotics.
Durable – Some traditional orthotics have a short lifespan. Cryos orthotics are made to last for 4-5 years!
Small – Traditional orthotics take up the entire length of a shoe, which can make them difficult it move from shoe to shoe. Cryos orthotics are smaller slimmer and easy to move in between shoes.

What Conditions Do Orthotic Insoles help with?
Plantar Fasciitis And Heel Pain
Plantar fasciitis is a common painful condition affecting the bottom of the foot. The plantar fascia runs along the bottom of the foot connecting the heel to the base of the toes. This area can become inflamed and cause intense pain in the bottom of the foot. Often this irritation is due to a load management issue. The plantar fascia is being asked to do too much and as such is becoming irritated. Cryos orthotics help to control the movement of the foot and reduce the amount of force being placed through the plantar fascia.
Chronic Ankle Sprains
Ankle sprains are commonly caused by the foot rolling and weight being placed through the outside of the foot. Excessive supination can contribute to a ankle sprains. Controlling this supination and accelerating the pronation that foot goes through can potentially reduce the risk of rolling the ankle.
Metatarsalgia/Ball Of The Foot Pain
Pain under the ball of your foot and at the base of your toes could be due to metatarsalgia. Metatarsalgia is when there is inflammation present around the metatarsal heads. This can be due to improper load placement on the metatarsal heads. The Cryos orthotic can help to manage and displace this load.
Back, Hip, & Knee Pain
Alterations in gait can have effects up the kinetic chain. Gait can clearly be effected by the movements of the foot. Properly controlling these movements can reduce stress that is transmitted up the kinetic chain. When Cryos insoles help to optimize the movement of your foot they will help take some of the stress off of these areas.
