Orthotics

What Are They?:

Custom orthotics are specially made shoe inserts tailored to the shape of your feet and problems you might have with gait, function or pain. Orthotics are custom made to help correct imbalances in the feet and the resulting problems in your hips, knees, back and ankles.

How Do They Work:

Orthotics help restore proper alignment and function by gently supporting your feet and correcting misalignments. First, an assessment is done by reviewing your condition, then by examining each foot, analyzing alignment – both standing and walking, to determine issues. A plaster mold of your feet will be taken and corrective orthotics will be made by a laboratory.The orthotics fit inside your shoes to help correct foot issues as you walk, exercise or do daily activities.

How They Help:

These custom orthotic inserts will help correct gait, biomechanical and functional disorders by aligning feet to the correct position. The result is an increase in comfort, a decrease in disability and improved function in the feet, knees and hips. Orthotics reduce problems associated with muscle strains, ligament sprains and abnormal forces on the ankles, knees, hips and spine.

Over time your orthotics will help to support your movement, bringing you relief from pain and fatigue – allowing you to enjoy daily activities and sports once again. Symptoms of poor foot mechanics can include: local foot pain, arch and heel pain, bunions and hammer toes, leg and knee pain, and hip and back pain.
