Custom Foot Orthotics

Starting from the bottom up, proper foot biomechanics are key to correct body movement and function. Dysfunctional joints, muscles, or tendons within the feet, if left unattended, may cause disruption in foot mechanics. This can initiate pain within the feet, which possibly may cause biomechanical compensations resulting in knee, hip, and or low back pain. A solution, after hands-on treatment is exhausted, may involve the use of orthotics, custom made to fit you.

Custom foot orthotics are fabricated inserts worn inside shoes, to support and improve alignment and function of the feet. This provides cushioning and redistribution of force during ground contact, which most importantly helps to ease your pain and relieve stress from the tissues that hold you together.

To determine if custom orthotics are warranted, we will construct a comprehensive management plan after obtaining a thorough history and physical examination. This will include a structural and functional analysis of your gait, along with orthopedic testing to determine the support your feet are providing, and if orthotics can help. Customized professional orthotics can then be carefully constructed for your needs.
