Custom Shoe Modification

Rocker Sole Modification

A rocker sole modification to footwear helps to supplement lost range of motion in a joint, like the ankle, or help reduce pressure to certain regions of the foot. The starting position of the rocker, its thickness, how steep or curved the rocker is all are calculated into the design of the modification. In cases where the individual walks quite out-toed for example the rocker sole is also ground on an angle that matches this pattern. The sturdier the shoe the better the outcome with a rocker modification. Soft, thin soled footwear is not a good choice for this type of modification. Your Pedorthist will discuss the best options for shoe modification with you as well as recommend the most appropriate footwear to achieve the best outcome.
