Custom Orthotics

Custom Orthotics are specially-made, medical-grade braces that stabilize and support the foot.

Orthotics aim to control abnormal joint motion, not disrupt muscle strength. The benefits of custom orthotics are numerous and include:

  • Providing cushion and support to the feet
  • Relieving pressure and preventing foot ulcers
  • Improving overall back, knee and ankle health
  • Injury prevention by providing a stable surface
  • Precise fit to your foot reducing any abnormal joint motion

Custom orthotics are specifically molded to fit your feet and are intended for individual use. Dr. Castelein uses custom orthotics to treat a variety of conditions including hammertoes, bunions, plantar fasciitis, arthritis, high arched foot, flat foot, and tendon pain.

Foot Doctor in Milford Michigan

Custom Orthotic Process

Dr. Castelein begins the process by evaluating the need for orthotics. Then, he casts your feet in a fiberglass mold while placing your foot in its neutral position, to best capture the contours of your feet. The casts are then sent to an independent orthotic lab to be manufactured to accommodate your foot structure and pathology. Once we receive the orthotics, they are properly fit and dispensed. Our medical assistants are specifically trained in fitting orthotics and ensure the best fit. We then have you check back with Dr. Castelein in three weeks to discuss how they are working for you. At this time, Dr. Castelein can make any adjustments to the orthotics or treatment plan as needed!

Many uses!

Dr. Castelein and staff were friendly, knowledgeable , efficient and took the time to get to know me and understand my medical needs. I would not hesitate to go to Brighton Foot & Ankle. They go out of their way to treat their patients like family.
Dr. Castelein is great; he is very nice, patient, and professional. His staff is also excellent and friendly. It's only been about three hours since having my big toenail removed and, with acetaminophen and ibuprofen, there is very little pain(sometimes I completely forget about it); he did an excellent job. Overall, I am very impressed with Dr. Casteleins Practice and I would highly recommend his office.
Doctor & staff were so professional, friendly & efficient. I had a high risk condition that they expertly guided me through 5 months of healing. Thankfully a full recovery. I give them my best recommendation.
Very friendly and accommodating front desk staff. Dr. Castelein and Jennifer always take their time and do an amazing job! Great variety of quick pick up over the counter products that are always affordable too. Best experience I have had at an office.

Excellent staff and exceptional doctor. I went in with Bunion issues. Dr. Castelein listened to my concerns and addressed my options. 4 days post-op bunion surgery I can say he did an amazing job. Best experience I have ever had. I would definitely recommend; I promise you won't look further.
The staff and Dr. Castelein are all amazing. They are polite and very respectful. I came to see them in 2019 for bunion and hammer toe issues among some others. Dr. Castelein and his assistant listened to my concerns and gave me my options. He explained everything to me in detail and all my questions were answered.. I have seen other podiatrists and he is beyond the best. I would recommend him to anyone.
Friendly staff and intelligent doctor! I went in for some ankle X-rays and was given a great strategy on the different ways to heal my ankle, and how to progress forward if less invasive treatment doesn't help. I would highly recommend them to anyone with foot or ankle problems!
