Many different styles and types of orthotics can be designed in order to alleviate various types of pain in the feet, knees, hips and lower back. These can range from soft flexible types to very rigid types. It is important to have your foot and shoes properly evaluated prior to getting orthotics.
What to Expect
Along with your detailed health history, our thorough biomechanical assessment will determine the type of orthotic best suited to your needs.
We then take a semi-weightbearing 3D impression of your feet using foam casting. The casts of your feet, along along with your biomechanical assessment and order form, are sent to a professional and reputable lab where your orthotics are fabricated to your unique specifications.
How do Orthotics Work?
Orthotics work to support and re-position your feet. Like eye-glasses, they help us while we are wearing them. When we remove the orthotics, they rarely change our feet at all. Orthotics allow us to maintain our lifestyle and activities, while reducing the symptoms.
Orthotics are often prescribed as a method of treatment for an injury. Orthotics will help you to recover from the injury. Once the injury has healed, orthotic use should continue, in order to prevent the injury from recurring.
