Orthotics for Joint Relief and Correction
Foot, ankle, knee, hip and lower back pain can be caused by improper foot alignment and support. Symptoms occur when muscles, tendons and joints become inflamed or degenerate from abnormal, chronic stresses and strains placed upon them.
Calluses, heel spurs, bunions, neuromas and plantar fasciitis are common foot conditions. Custom orthotics maintain the foot in a more neutral or correct alignment thereby reducing these stresses.
Our physical therapists are certified to develop customized orthotics. The process starts with a thorough gait and movement analysis. The therapist then places the foot in a “neutral” position where a mold will be made out of plaster to capture the unique shape of the foot. Finally, the results of the assessment and mold are then sent out for fabrication, which typically takes 10-14 days.
Our experts have a keen understanding of proper alignment and the importance of a precise orthotic fit.
