An orthotic is a device that can be inserted into the shoe to support, align, prevent and/or accommodate foot abnormalities and improve how the foot functions.
When working together with the right footwear, a foot orthotic is effective to treat several problems that could be bothering you. This includes:
- Heel pain
- Arch pain
- Shin splints
- Hip pain
- Knee pain
We examine feet at our office and correlate the findings with the alignment of our feet, knee's, hips and spines.
Sometimes orthotics can be beneficial in supporting and modifying structure. Many patients find relief from back, hip, knee and foot types of pain from orthotics.
At our office, we use either laser scanning or foam casting as these are industry three dimensional standard for insurance companies reimbursement.
We then send our lab kits to an insurance accepted laboratory that has a Podiatrist or foot doctor overview the making of the orthotics.
The orthotics are made to the highest quality and meet and exceed industry standard for insurance companies.
